The Kidnap Plot

(2016)
(The first book in the Extraordinary Journeys of Clockwork Charlie series)
A novel by

 
The first installment in an action-adventure series about a boy on a rescue mission - part Pinocchio, part fantasy, and all fun!

Meet Charlie. He lives a quiet life with his protective father, an inventor and clockmaker.

When Charlie's father is kidnapped by a shadowy group called the Anti-Human League, it's up to Charlie to save him. But the league's plan is much more sinister than Charlie could have imagined. And as he unravels their secrets, he also uncovers his father's own secrets - about his family, the league, and even himself. . . .

Can Charlie and his gang - a terrifying but well-meaning troll and a pair of high-flying young aeronauts - rescue Charlie's father from the dastardly villains who have kidnapped him? And will Charlie be able to come to terms with who he really is? The journey begins here!

"Reminiscent of both Pinocchio and The Great Mouse Detective, this novel is tailor-made for young readers who love adventure narratives and steampunk fiction." - Kirkus

"A page-turning adventure." - School Library Journal

"The fast-paced plot is action-packed. . . . [The Kidnap Plot] should satisfy fans of fantasy and adventure." - Publishers Weekly
