Ned’s Circus of Marvels

Publisher: HarperCollins

Review

On Ned's 13th birthday, his ordinary humdrum life changes forever. Fleeing a terrifying kidnap attempt, his dad leads the villains away from Ned, telling him to seek sanctuary in the bizarre Circus of Marvels.

There, Ned discovers that his past is anything but ordinary - and that evil demons, bloodthirsty beasts and dark forces are threatening to take over the world: unless Ned, his mechanical mouse Whiskers, and a girl called Lucy can save the day…

A gripping adventure overflowing with spells, otherworldly creatures, villainous treachery and extraordinary magic, in which the power of loyalty, friendship and love are truly tested.
