The second in an enchanting trilogy of books for children, The Quest follows the parallel adventures of Dandelion as he goes to find out what happened to his beloved mamananna s family, and those of the Right Honorable William John Blight who had ventured into the dark continent of Africa to rescue the Hon. Sir Stanley Stanton who went missing in the jungle some twenty years before. The Quest reunites us with many of the delightful characters we encountered in Book One, including Dandelion, accompanied on his adventures by his angel Chamomile, who refuses to let him go on his own. They follow a strange road, that leads them into what they assume is an enormous rabbit hole, and rest up for the night. The rabbit hole turns out to be a railway tunnel and they wake in fright from the deafening dragon train. The Quest is the second book in this delightful children s trilogy.
