A encounter with a boy dangling from the sky changes pickpocket Magpie's life forever.

Like her, the boy dreams of flying over the rooftops of Paris. His family, the Montgolfiers, are desperate to be first to discover the secret of flight. Together with Pierre, Magpie is soon caught up in a world of inflatable bloomers, spies and a trio of unruly animals in a race to be the first to fly a hot air balloon - in front of the King and Queen of France.

Emma Carroll has been steadily carving a niche as a writer of evocative and spine-tingling children’s fiction, justifiably earning her writing comparisons not only with classic Children’s writers including Joan Aiken but also the ghost stories of Susan Hill.  Her prize-winning fiction includes Frost Hollow Hall (Longlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize), The Girl Who Walked on AirIn Darkling WoodStrange Star and Letters from the Lighthouse
