Delilah Dirk and the King's Shilling by Tony CliffGlobetrotting troublemaker Delilah Dirk and her loyal friend Selim are just minding their own business, peacefully raiding castles and and traipsing across enemy lines, when they attract the unwanted attention of the English Army. Before they know it, Delilah and Selim have gotten themselves accused of espionage against the British crown! Delilah will do whatever it takes to clear her good name, be it sneaking, skirmishing, or even sword fighting...But can she bring herself to wear a pretty dress and have a nice cup of tea with her mother? Delilah Dirk may be defeated at last. By tulle.

Kate Beaton, author of Hark! A Vagrant One of the most beautifully illustrated books I've ever seen. Cheers to the swashbuckling adventures of Delilah and Selim!
Entertainment Weekly The character development adds welcome depth to an already absorbing adventure. Irresistible and exhilarating.
School Library Journal, starred review It's the dynamic between Delilah and Selim, a headstrong woman and pliant man who remain platonic companions, that gives the book its compelling emotional center.
