Waterstones Says

The author of the acclaimed Darwin's Dragons delivers another fiercely intelligent and well-realised historical novel revolving around a giant octopus and a sinister mystery in a Victorian aquarium.

England, 1893, and aquarium fever is at its height. Twelve-year-old Vinnie Fyfe works in the tea-shop at Brighton aquarium, and waits for her milliner mother to return from Paris. The arrival of a giant octopus changes her life for ever. Discovering a talent for art, Vinnie begins to draw the extraordinary beast. She soon realises she can communicate with the octopus through colour and - as a gripping mystery begins to unfold - discovers what true courage really means...

The second middle-grade historical adventure by critically acclaimed Lindsay Galvin, author of Darwin's Dragons. A gripping Victorian mystery with a touching connection between a young girl and an octopus at its heart.
