When you guide the boy in your care to the battlefield in Afghanistan; when that boy is fourteen-year-old Jarvis Juniper and you are his guardian angel, there are questions to answer. Ankarra returns home to her own guardian in a bid to save Jarvis. High in the tree houses of another dimension, Jacinda’s shrouds are lit and the fool’s journey revealed.

With his dad missing in action, Jarvis becomes a vulnerable outsider. Trapped by his grief and uncertainty, he finds escape in graffiti. His creativity unwittingly opens new doors to old realities. Is it a dream or just the fumes from his paint tin? Stepping in to one of his own art works, Jarvis meets Percy on a path in an ancient wood; little does he suspect that path will lead him all the way to Camelot.

Andrew Blackwell abandoned his working life as a social worker to explore the outer reaches of his creative imagination. An actor, performance poet and story-teller, he has turned his restless gaze on the enchanting story of the fool and re-imagined it for a hungry new audience. He considers the way artistic exploration can open new doors into the understanding of self and how allegory can provide rich insights into navigating the choppy waters of adolescence. Blackwell is an ‘outdoorsman’ versed in the ways of the wild. Follow him into the forest and be led out the other side.
