A delightful, magical and truly unique tale of ten-year-old Peter Nimble, a blind orphan who happens to be the world’s greatest thief.

This debut novel begins in Dickensian style, with Peter locked in a cellar during the day, only allowed out to steal by cover of night.   However Peter is a hero destined for great things and in this “anything can happen” fast paced adventure he soon meets a mind reading haberdasher, breaks into a padlocked carriage to discover a box containing three sets of mysterious eyes and saves a drowning  knight who has been turned into a cat/ horse hybrid. This is a fantastic and fantastical story, perfect for children aged 8+.
