WINNER OF A 2013 NEWBERY HONOR! Seeing his chance to produce a fortune, Grisini accepts and tends to make a splendidly gaudy entrance with caravan, puppets, and his two orphaned assistants. In fact, Clara's life is shadowed by grief, guilt, and secrets. Clara seems to have anything they lack — adoring parents, warmth, and plenty to eat. The master puppeteer, Gaspare Grisini, is so professional at manipulating his stringed puppets that they seem alive. Clara Wintermute, the only child of a wealthy doctor, is spellbound by Grisini's act and invites him to entertain at her birthday party. Fleeing London, they find themselves caught in a trap set by Grisini's ancient rival, a witch having a deadly inheritance to shed before it's too late. Newbery Medalist Laura Amy Schlitz brings her sorcery to a Victorian gothic thriller — an enthralling, darkly comic tale that would do Dickens proud. As they seek to puzzle out Clara's whereabouts, Lizzie and Parse uncover Grisini's criminal past and wake up to his evil intentions. Newbery Medal winner Laura Amy Schlitz's Victorian gothic is a rich banquet of dark comedy, scorching magic, as well since the brilliant and bewitching storytelling that is her trademark. Lizzie Rose and Parsefall are dazzled by the Wintermute home. When Clara vanishes that night, suspicion of kidnapping falls upon the puppeteer and, by association, Lizzie Rose and Parsefall.
