Warning: this book contains a truly ridiculous number of delicious cakes, a herd of rude cats, a ramshackle gang of kids, and a dangerous organisation determined to spoil things for everyone, even you…
When Trilby’s mother catches a strange sickness, Trilby must find her only other surviving relative, a 300-year-old aunt who lives in a secret antique shop on the edge of time. But along the way Trilby will encounter an unusual inheritance, significant adventure and a man in a top hat who will try to kill her…more than once.
Beautifully written, clever and funny with a sensible dose of scary, The Dangerous Business of Being Trilby Moffat, offers a delightful escape into a world of magical adventure.
