Bridie goes to the city to visit her Gramps, but he's not at the bus station to meet her and when she goes to his yard, she discovers the peculiar Crickbone twins have taken it over. Bridie sets out to find her grandfather and comes across the Byzantium Bazaar, an old department store, and is befriended by Miss Firbanks, the eccentric woman who owns it. Eventually Bridie finds her grandfather and together they set about reclaiming his scrap yard and getting rid of the Crickbones. Told in Stephen Elboz's own inimitable style, A Store of Secrets sparkles with originality and energy and introduces the reader to a fantasy full of wonderfully eccentric characters.
