Synopsis



From the bestselling author of Darwin's Dragons

comes a high-stakes aquatic adventure, perfect for fans of The

Murderer's Ape!

England, 1893, and aquarium fever is at its height.







Twelve-year-old Vinnie Fyfe works in the tea-shop at Brighton

aquarium, and waits for her milliner mother to return from Paris.







The arrival of a giant octopus changes her life for ever. Discovering

a talent for art, Vinnie begins to draw the extraordinary

beast.





She soon realises she can communicate with the octopus through

colour and - as a gripping mystery begins to unfold -

discovers what true courage really means ...











The second middle-grade historical adventure by critically

acclaimed Lindsay Galvin, author of Darwin's Dragons





A gripping Victorian mystery with a touching connection

between a young girl and an octopus at its heart





Strong STEM and natural history themes with an underwater

twist





Effortlessly blends exciting adventure with a rip-roaring

historical mystery and non-fiction elements







PRAISE FOR DARWIN'S DRAGONS:





'A striking and original adventure ... just the sort of story

I love.' EMMA CARROLL





'WHAT a voyage! [Darwin's Dragons] is everything

you hope it will be ...' LUCY STRANGE





'[A] beautifully fictionalised story' THE TELEGRAPH
