Penelope Tredwell is the feisty thirteen-year-old orphan heiress of the bestselling magazine, The Penny Dreadful. Her masterly tales of the macabre are gripping Victorian Britain, even if no one knows she’s the author.
Characters like her stern guardian, Wigram, or actor Monty Maples make for a great supporting cast, and the language effectively and wonderfully brings Victorian London to life, but it is the plot of each novel that really draws you in. Why are the patients of Bedlam waking every night at exactly twelve minutes to midnight? Who is the mysterious author who is writing about sinister crimes before they are committed? And what tale of terror does a silent movie film maker want to bring to life with his camera?
These are spine-tingling historical novels packed with period detail and cinematic in scope, and these excellent mysteries will appeal to both boys and girls aged 10 and up.
