A fast-paced, thrilling first novel by BAFTA award winner Alex Williams.

Packed with thrills, spills, daring high-speed chases and compelling characters, The Talent Thief is an extraordinary tale of peril and adventure from a far-from-ordinary new talent in children's books.

Synopsis

Talent Thief by Alex Williams

Orphans Adam and Cressida Bloom couldn't be less alike. Adam can't seem to help being ordinary whereas Cressida, his sister, has a magnificent talent - when she sings, even the birds stop to listen. Then Cressida is invited to perform at Fortescue's festival. But, once the children arrive, their terrific talents begin to mysteriously disappear.

About the Author

Alex Williams

Alex Williams was introduced to adventure at the grand age of two months
when his delightfully mad family decided to move from stately London to the wilds of Cornwall.

Making short fantasy films at art college and winning the 'film most suitable for theatrical release' award at the 1991 Fuji Scholarship Awards paved the way to writing scripts for TV which led, in 2003, to a children's best writer BAFTA for the acclaimed TV series 'Sir Gadbout: The Worst Knight in the Land'. Recently Alex has turned his attentions to children's literature, penning books set in worlds much like our own but with curious creatures, gleaming machines, unlikely heroes and chilling twists and turns.
