Barnaby Grimes is a tick-tock lad, high-stacking his way across the rooftops of his city in search of adventure and mystery. In each tale, he encounters a supernatural force and must battle the horrors that await him.
In the fiercely competitive world of early photography, the rewards are immense but so are the risks. After an experiment goes disastrously wrong, Barnaby finds himself on the trail of a mad chemist with a talent for disappearing into thin air . . .
Fabulous illustrations by Chris Riddell, of course . . . A real page turner
This is a terrific tale and a real page-turner
Once again Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell have produced a well written and thoroughly enjoyable gothic novel. The illustrations complement the book beautifully and bring the characters and action to life
