Could life get any more miserable for thirteen-year-old Gethin? His mam's always nagging on at him, the girl of his dreams, Caitlin, isn't interested and, to make things even worse, the school hardman, Nathan, and his bullying sidekick, Cai, are after him.

Further Information:

Then he goes to Caitlin's Hallowe'en party, and his whole life turns upside down. Chased by Nathan and Cai, Gethin ends up running for his life ... and waking up 300 years in the past.

There, he meets a boy called Guto Nyth Brân. Guto can run like a greyhound, he's brave and adventurous and everything Gethin isn't. And, through his friendship, Gethin begins to realise he's not as much of a wimp as hed thought. But as time passes and the next Hallowe'en approaches, Gethin finds himself in grave danger. Now the race is on. Can he get back to the present day before he runs out of time ...

An exciting new translation of the acclaimed Gethin Nyth Brân, which was shortlisted for the prestigious Tir na n-Og Award for children's literature in 2018. 'the author had succeeded in combining the historical tale of Welsh running hero Guto Nyth Brân with Gethin's story as he improves in confidence in both worlds and gains success in a world of possibilities ...' - WBC recommendation
