Agatha's Song is a kind of theme-tune: it's where Agatha is setting out on her mission
to stop the war and to find the Acorn, to keep it out of the greedy paws of Admiral Gizor. She is trying to
decipher the riddle she's been given … and slowly realising who is the Chosen One with whom she must travel.
The song is free to stream on SoundCloud. Agatha's Song was written by Amanda Field, arranged by David P Bailey, mixed at Blackhill Studios by Tom Gibson, and is sung by Claire Murphy.
We've hidden a series of painted pebbles in some of the key places where the action of the book takes place - in Gosport, Portchester, Portsmouth and Southsea. Some are paintings of squirrels, hedgehogs and badgers; some have wording on them from the riddles in the book. If you find one, you'll recognise it by flipping it over, where you'll find 'Apple Dumpling Bridge' written on the reverse. Why not take a photograph of it and post it on the K L Knowles Facebook page before hiding it again? And, of course, we'd love it if you wanted to paint your own pebble, perhaps of one of your favourite characters in the book, and place it for others to find.
