The Lovereading4Kids comment

A wholly compelling dark tale of mystery and intrigue with some terrifically witty turns of phrase as orphan Pin Carpule meets the Bone Magician and gets drawn into a world of the secrets surrounding bone magic and its powers. The more Pin discovers, the more scared he becomes. Will he be able to save himself? If you like this we recommend you try The Black Book Of Secrets by the same author, which is equally gripping and cleverly drawn.
