Billy and the Golden Gate


Today is the Day of the Dead. The first time Billy saw the book he was with his dad. “Look Billy, there’s the Book of the Dead. And what’s more, it contains a map, not any old kind of map, but a map you can only see on the day of the dead that leads you to the Golden Gate.” “What’s at the Golden Gate?” Billy had asked. His father had looked at him earnestly. “That’s where the dead go.” What do you do when you’ve lost one of the people you loved most in this world? The days just seem to carry on and on. Until, one day, a chance presents itself to see that person just one more time. Do you take that chance? This is a story all about what Billy does on the Day of the Dead... when no one ventures outside. Billy sets off on an epic adventure to The Golden Gate, which only appears on this day, with a bag of tricks tailor-made for a dangerous expedition. Along the way he must face perilous situations, meet dangerous monsters, witches and wolves.... and in the end he will learn the true value of friendship. Billy and the Golden Gate is a charming story of love and adventure, while also dealing with loss. It is perfect for children aged 11 and up.
