The Whatnot

Stefan Bachmann

In this companion to The Peculiar (2012), 12-year-old Pikey Thomas joins forces with Bartholomew Kettle, a half-fairy changeling, to search for Bartholomew’s sister Hettie, who was pulled through a mysterious door and into the fairy-inhabited forest of the Old Country. Set in a steampunk version of Victorian London, Pikey, Bartholomew and Hettie find themselves pawns in the middle of a brewing war between the fairies and the humans. Featuring nonstop action and engaging characters, this will appeal to fans of Holly Black and Christopher Paolini. Ages 8 to 10
