Clemency is utterly penniless and entirely alone, until she's taken in by the marvellous Marvels - a madcap family completely unlike her own. But it's a surprise to them all when she's mysteriously bundled from the house by the frightening Miss Clawe. Concerned about her fate, the Marvels set out to find her. Enlisting the help of some not-quite-genuine Red Indians, it's a calamitous race across the country. But Clemency's misadventures are more dire than her rescuers suspect . . . will they reach her in time? A thrilling adventure mystery with skulduggery, magic, and dark family secrets.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is a glorious mix of the essences of The Secret Garden , the Lemony Snicket books and a large dollop of inventiveness. It really is a wonderful read.' * www.waterstones.com *
'There's skulduggery, dark secrets and derring-do ahoy in this Victorian mystery adventure with a dash of dark humour.' * The Bookseller *
'A gutsy orphan, outrageous villainy, a delicious hint of danger, and a whole lot of heart. What more could you want?' * Sara Starbuck, author of The Dread Pirate Fleur books *
'A thrilling tale about a small, shy orphan; the tiniest mite can pack the biggest bite!' * Libby, aged 11 *
'Clemency wriggles for all she's worth through sticky situations!' * Jasmine, aged 9 *
'Thrilling and exciting . . . It left me wondering what was going to happen next. I didn't want to put it down! Full of suspense and action-packed.' * Amy, aged 10 *
'Clemency Wrigglesworth is fantastic. It is my favourite book I have ever read. The description is magical. It is fantastic!' * Eva, aged 9 *
'With an ensemble of offbeat characters, plenty of jaunty dialogue and a plucky heroine who will appeal to both boys and girls, The Mysterious Misadventures of Clemency Wrigglesworth hits the mark. Always entertaining, the bouncy plot will jostle you along.' * Annabel Pitcher, Guardian *
A spirited heroine...Clemency Wrigglesworth, in the fine novel by Julia Lee * Waterstones.com *
'Julia Lee's storytelling has a distinctly modern voice, yet the framework of the novel is skilfully constructed with due respect for the Victorian literary tradition it represents... could inspire young readers to have a go at enjoying some of the classic fiction her adventures echo.' * Teach Primary *
