Wagstaffe, the Wind-up Boy

A collection of stories by

Wagstaffe is an unusual boy. He is kind, polite and generous-but his parents think that he's completely useless. He is a bit scruffy, true, but is that really an excuse for them to run away and join a circus? They do, and soon become world famous, due to their amazing tricks. Wagstaffe has a problem. He's got clockwork guts a big key in the middle of his back-and he is completely skint. A quirky comedy for children that will be enjoyed by adults too. With delightful drawings by Roy Bentley.
