Publisher's Summary

In the aptly named borough of Foulsham, Grandfather Umbitt Iremonger has found a way of making everyday objects assume human shape, and turning real people into objects. Lucy Pennant has been discarded as a clay button, abandoned in the Heaps. Meanwhile, Clod has been turned into a gold coin and is being passed as currency through the town. Everywhere people are searching for Clod, who, it is believed, has the power to bring the mighty Umbitt down.

Critic Reviews

"Iremonger torques and tempers our memories of Dickensian London into a singularly jaunty and creepy tale of agreeable misfits." (Gregory Maguire, author of Wicked)

Brilliant and bonkers

Inventive and personable, funny and thoughtful. So pleased it’s a trilogy, will be sad when it ends.
