An improbable hero, a spine-tingling adventure, and a surprising twist of fate ...Gully Potchard never meant to cause any trouble. He's just an ordinary sort of boy least that what he thinks. But when an old acquaintance comes knocking, it isn't long before Gully is tangled up in a mess of mischief and skulduggery. Cats and dogs go astray, a child is kidnapped, and ransom notes are delivered to the wrong people! But as a storm rages and a fire blazes, Gully discovers that he has an extraordinary skill that might just make him an unlikely hero after all ...Another unputdownable adventure from the author of The Mysterious Misadventures of Clemency Wrigglesworth!

Review quote

Unmissable ... hugely enjoyable from start to finish. * Peter Hollindale, The School Librarian * The story is beautifully written, the words are extremely descriptive * Kat Winter, The Guardian Children's Books * ...exciting, breathtaking adventure with some very likeable, well rounded, unusual characters. It will keep you gripped to the end. * Debbie Williams, Primary Times * There are wonderful characters in this mix of humour and drama which makes it another good read for those of nine plus. * Caroline Franklin, Newbury Weekly News * Written with Lee's trademark style, wit, colourful characterisation and seductive sense of place, this is a brilliant story for both boys and girls. * Lancaster Guardian * Filled with clever coincidences, startling suspense and non-stop cliff-hangers * Freya Sutcliff, HNR [Historical Novel Review] * For The Mysterious Misadventures of Clemency Wrigglesworth: 'There's skulduggery, dark secrets and derring-do ahoy in this Victorian mystery adventure with a dash of dark humour.' * The Bookseller * For The Mysterious Misadventures of Clemency Wrigglesworth: 'This is a glorious mix of the essences of The Secret Garden, the Lemony Snicket books and a large dollop of inventiveness. It really is a wonderful read.' * *
