May 2017 Book of the Month | Peter Bunzl continues the adventures of the stars of the hugely popular Cogheart in his new adventure which has all the charm and appeal of his debut. Robert is now living with Lily and her father and their household of mechanical friends and helpers, but he misses his father very much, and is still hoping that something will bring his mother back to him. The adventure escalates with the escape from prison of a notorious criminal and there seems to be a link between the thief’s target, the beautiful Moonlocket, and Robert. There are more vivid scenes on the ground and in the air, and the characters, both human and mechanical, have real heart. Original, and exciting this is a delight. Readers will also enjoy Sharon Gosling’s steampunk adventure The Diamond Thief.
