The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is a new edition of Julie Hearn's stunning debut novel that takes the reader on a dramatic trip into a strange and original world, republished to coincide with the publication of her brand new novel in hardback Rowan the Strange. Present day Tom steps down into a basement and finds himself back in the eighteenth century where he discovers some shady practices being carried out by some unusual characters. How Tom survives in the world he finds himself in and what he discovers is eloquently told. Gripping, gentle, funny and downright scary at times it will have teenagers on the edge of their seat throughout.
Follow Me Down by Julie Hearn
Come along down, Sir. Step this way. Only a shilling, Sir, to view the changeling child. Only a shilling to behold the strangest work of nature that ever was. Come Sir, follow me down . . . In the basement a gap is forming. Mysterious voices are calling, and Tom cannot resist. Taking a leap through time Tom meets Astra, the changeling child; the incredible bendy man, and the gorilla woman -"monsters" being shown at Bartholomew Fair . In the dark and seedy backstreets of eighteenth-century London, doctors are paying high prices for unusual bodies to dissect, and Astra and her friends are prime targets. They desperately need Tom's help. But Tom has problems of his own . . . Come, sir. Follow Me Down ...
