The Unadoptables Five fantastic children on the adventure of a lifetime

Author: Hana Tooke Illustrator: Ayesha L. Rubio Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 18/02/2021

A compelling, gorgeously-written story about the power of friendship and the true meaning of family . . . perfection! Robin Stevens, author of Murder Most Unladylike A high-speed, witty, absurd and joyful adventure. Katherine Rundell, author of Rooftoppers and The Good Thieves The remarkable. The extraordinary. The brave. Way back in the autumn of 1880, five babies are discovered at the Little Tulip Orphanage in most unusual circumstances. Those babies are Lotta, Egbert, Fenna, Sem and Milou. The vile matron calls the children 'the unadoptables' but this talented gang of best friends know that their individuality is what makes them so special - and so determined to stay together. When a sinister gentleman tries to get them in his clutches, the children make a daring escape across the frozen canals of Amsterdam, embarking on an adventure packed with pirate ships and puppets. But is their real home - and their real family - already closer than they realize? A corker of a story. Emma Carroll, author of Letters to the Lighthouse A book to absolutely fall in love with. Cerrie Burnell, author of The Girl with the Shark's Teeth
