Triiiple Vision
by Ian Pillinger

Why couldn’t I see properly? I blinked. I rubbed my eyes, but everything stayed blurred… It was just like looking at one of those 3D films without the specs… Worse than double vision… Triple vision! Running my fingers over my scalp to feel the bump, I was confused all over again. How could my hair have grown so quickly? I was shocked to discover I was dressed in some sort of heavy carpet-like overcoat, a pair of roughly woven trousers, and stout leather shoes. Where were my jeans? And what had happened to my t-shirt and sneakers?

When Luke’s mother and sister are tragically killed, his father sinks into a deep depression. To cope with this difficult situation, the boy begins exploring the surrounding countryside, filling a sketchbook with his drawings. Alone one day on a small beach, he slips and falls, hitting his head badly. Regaining consciousness, he discovers that he has triple vision; three almost identical images overlay one another. But which one should he trust? Noticing the figure of a young girl, Luke makes a decision and struggles to recover. But he finds his surroundings are very different; there are no buildings and no sign of the steps he descended earlier. Rubbing his head, he finds his hair is long and unkempt. Moreover, his clothing is crudely handmade. Looking up, he recognises the girl, and the first part of an astonishing adventure begins. But are Luke’s experiences real or has he created everything in his mind whilst unconscious?

Triiiple Vision, which has been illustrated by Ian, has been inspired by a number of authors including Philip Reeve, Garth Nix and Philip Pullman. It will appeal to young adult readers aged 14-18 years.

A great book, as a 52 year old teenager I loved it! Luke in his many guises was the star, but with a very strong supporting cast which moved effortlessly between realms, and an ending ripe for a sequel. I look forward to it!
