Come along down, sir. Step this way. Only a shilling, sir, to view the changeling child. Only a shilling to behold the strangest work of nature that ever was. Come sir, follow me down...In the basement a gap is forming.
Mysterious voices are calling, and Tom cannot resist. Taking a leap through time Tom meets
Astra, the changeling child; the incredible bendy man, and the gorilla woman monsters being shown at Bartholomew Fair. In the dark and seedy backstreets of eighteenth-century London, doctors are paying high prices for unusual bodies to dissect, and
Astra and her friends are prime targets. They desperately need Tom's help.
But Tom has problems of his own . . . Come, sir. Follow me Down...

Here's what you say about us...

This book is gripping, gentle, funny, and downright scary at times. It also captures brilliantly the gulf between children's concerns, and what their parents think is on their minds.
The Guardian

A beautifully crafted, spine-tingling story by first time novelist Julie Hearn.
The Daily Telegraph

A corker of a novel, original and rambunctious.... Fantastical, yet down to earth, funny and ripe with details of eighteenth century life.
The Observer

A wonderful novel
The School Librarian

So here's a new, wild, free voice.
