Waterstones Says

Boasting delightfully creepy artwork from Chris Mould, Jenni Spangler’s outstanding gothic chiller features a manipulative medium and a gang of plucky orphan children.

Waterstones Children's Book of the Month for May 2020

Step into a world of secrets, folklore and illusions, where nothing is as it seems and magic is at play...

Leander is an orphan, making his way in the world on just his wits. So when he meets Madame Pinchbeck, a mysterious woman who promises to give him a job and a home in return for his mother’s precious locket, he leaps at the chance.

But Pinchbeck’s bargain isn’t a fair one. Instead she enchants the locket, turning it into a magical Cabinet and trapping Leander inside to be summoned and vanished at will.

And Leander isn’t the only child Pinchbeck has captured. Along with his new friends, Charlotte and Felix, Leander finds himself in a race against time to break Pinchbeck’s spell, before one of them vanishes forever...

A spellbinding debut from exciting new talent Jenni Spangler. Set to bewitch fans of Michelle Harrison, Emma Carroll and Sophie Anderson.

“It's one of the darkest, creepiest middle grade books I've read!”

Madame Pinchbeck is a truly horrifying villain, and I loved her mixture of showmanship, manipulation and control. It was done so cleverly that it would be quite believable (and almost as horrible) even without the... More

“Chris Mould's eerie illustrations perfectly capture the spirit of this truly original, gothic Victorian fairytale”

The Vanishing Trick is a debut that stands out. The writing is atmospheric, the plot is twisty, the characters are distinct, and the black-and-white illustrations (from the illustrator of Matt Haig's The Truth... More
