With her friends - Robert, the clockmaker's son, and Malkin, her mechanical fox - Lily is plunged into a murky and menacing world. Too soon Lily realizes that those she holds dear may be the very ones to break her heart...

Review quote

Bunzl's impressive debut novel... draws readers into an atmospheric steam-punk plot which has all the ingredients of a real page-turner. Sinister characters and high tension ensure that children will devour this. * The Bookseller * A classic adventure in every way I love - machines, Victoriana and high, pulse-pounding thrills. It's got real heart too. * Rob Lloyd Jones, author of Wild Boy * A delightfully badly behaved heroine, enthralling mechanicals and a stormer of a plot. * Abi Elphinstone, author of The Dreamsnatcher * A gem of a book. * Katherine Woodfine, author of The Clockwork Sparrow * A glittering clockwork treasure. * Piers Torday *

About Peter Bunzl

Peter Bunzl grew up in South London in a rambling Victorian house with three cats, two dogs, one sister, an antique-dealer dad and an artist mum. He is a BAFTA-winning animator, as well as a writer and film-maker. Peter's debut novel, Cogheart, has been shortlisted for lots of awards, including the Waterstones Children's Book Prize. Like Lily and Robert, he loves adventures and reading penny dreadfuls, but wishes dearly that he had a mechanical fox called Malkin.
