Recently I have been trying to seek out this book however I don't know who wrote it or what it was called. Searches on the internet appear too have been fruitless. I can't be the only person to have read this book...or did I come across some mystical copy that only appeared for me?
Anyway I may not remember the name or author but I can describe some aspects of it that may jog someones memory and help me to find it.
It was kind of a Alice in Wonderland/Wizard of Oz type of theme. I'm pretty sure that the main character [a young girl] travelled to another land. I am pretty sure that there was some sort of robot/automaton that she befriended. And she had another companion but I can't remember anything about them.
I want to say that there was something to do with a snow globe...however I may have completely made that up!
Two scenes from the story that I remember are:
- They have to climb a mountain that is shaped like a needle.
- There is a room [possibly inside the needle shaped mountain] that is full of some kind of sticky cobwebs.
I probably read it in the late 80s/early 90s, so it will have been published before then...obviously!
Anyone have any ideas on what it could be?
Any at all?
