Sometimes eccentric, generally amusing, and often simply mysterious – Andrew Dalton has always felt a strong affinity with those odd buildings called ‘follies.’ Not surprisingly, they are a key element in his Malplaquet trilogy for children, which are a sequel to a T. H. White story (Mistress Masham’s Repose) and Gulliver’s Travels.

 

A History graduate, married with three grown-up sons, Andrew has long enjoyed teaching Ethics and Religious Studies to senior school students, and is delighted to be living and working at Shrewsbury School in one of England’s most beautiful counties. His spare time is most happily spent reading anything by C. S. Lewis, showing his students how to play pool, wandering along the hills and beaches of North Wales, eating Italian food and watching Liverpool showing other teams how to play soccer. In his ideal world, all these would be done simultaneously.

 

The Temples of Malplaquet (Lutterworth Press, 2005) is the first of the trilogy. The Lost People of Malplaquet was published in 2007, and the third instalment, The New Empire of Malplaquet, soon after.

 

The Temples of Malplaquet is not interested in targeting an audience. It gets on with the business of telling a good story well. It can be enjoyed by the young reader who wants something meatier than Pet Casualty, or by the older reader who can live without the darker edges of J. K. Rowling. It is a story about decisions and consequences, about patterns of behaviour, about the way we relate to others. In other words, it's about what it means to be human. Or, it's a quirky, surreal, fun adventure story’ - HMC Journal
