When a travelling skycircus arrives in Brackenbridge, Lily and Robert can’t wait to step aboard. But there’s something sinister about the hybrid children who appear as part of the act. And before Lily and Robert can do anything, they’re captured by shadowy figures and whisked off in the mysterious flying circus to somewhere far, far away.
Treachery, tight-ropes and trickery combine in this incredible third Cogheart Adventure: the bestselling series of fantastical imagination set in a gripping Victorian world, from award-winning Peter Bunzl.
Old secrets can weigh heavy when you want to fly.
Invited to a one-off spectacular show by Slimwood’s Stupendous Travelling Skycircus, Lily, Robert and mechanical fox Malkin can’t wait to jump onboard.
But behind the daredevil deeds of the bewitching bird-girl and the lobster-handed boy, something sinister lurks. And soon, the watchful ringmistress, Madame Lyons-Mane, reveals a deadly plan for Lily. Could the secrets of Lily’s past hold their only chance of escape from this terrible trap?
