The Secret of Platform 13by Eva Ibbotson
Under Platform 13 in one of London's busiest train stations is an old doorway covered with peeling posters. Behind it is the entrance to a magical kingdom-an island where humans live happily with mermaids, ogres, and mysterious creatures called mistmakers. When a beastly woman named Mrs. Trottle kidnaps the island's young Prince, it's up to a strange band of rescuers to find him, save him, and return him to the King and Queen. But can the rescuers-an ogre, a hag, a wizard, and a fey-troop around London unnoticed? and what if the Prince doesn't want to go back?
