Product description

What good is a toy that will wind down? What if you could put a heart in one? A real heart. One that beat and beat and didn't stop. What couldn't you do if you could make a toy like that? From the moment Mathias becomes the owner of a mysterious piece of paper, he is in terrible danger. Entangled in devious plots and pursued by the sinister Doctor Leiter and his devilish toys, Mathias finds himself on a quest to uncover a deadly secret.

Review quote

"Pacy, exciting and inventive" Guardian "The sense of menace is maintained throughout and culminates in a chilling climax. Simply and effectively written and very visual, it all fits together like clockwork" The Bookseller "Fantastic story set in an imaginary world" School Librarian "This is a world of shadows and terror told with the utmost conviction. A remarkable debut novel" -- Enid Stephenson Carousel "This is beautifully produced, and worth reading aloud to 9+" -- Amanda Craig The Times
