Although Finn is in Year 4, he still can’t read properly. In order not to let anyone know - and particularly not his parents - he learns all the books off by heart which might be read out loud in class. But then he meets Yuki. Yuki says that he is a knight who is searching for the key to the gate which will give him entry to his people. During a school trip to a museum, Yuki finds this key. He grabs it, then grabs Finn, and they jump out of the museum window. They then embark on a rooftop adventure greater than anything Finn could ever have imagined…

- Addresses the topic of reading difficulties with sensitivity and a good dollop of humour.

- A neat mixture of fantasy and children’s everyday life.
