‘The Freaks are a lonely band of misfits, trapped in a Victorian sideshow known as Plumpscuttle’s Peculiars. There’s Sheba, a kind-hearted, wolf-girl with an amazing sense of smell; Sister Moon, an ex-assassin; and Monkey Boy, hygienically challenged but nimble and quick-witted. Together they are a force to be reckoned with.
The winner of The Times/Chicken House Children’s Fiction Competition 2011, Freaks is a richly imagined gothic mystery set in the grime of Victorian London.’ www.doublecluck.com
