Can't judge a book by its cover? I have to say that isn't the case for Peter Bunzl's Cogheart. The cover looks amazing and it's a fabulous story too.
Peter writes about his success:
I am delighted to announce that my debut novel Cogheart is the Waterstones' Children’s Book of the Month for August 2016.
Over the last few days, it’s been fantastic to see the many pictures friends have sent of Cogheart displayed in the various Waterstones' shops up and down the country, and to catch a glimpse of some elements of the window displays the artistic book sellers have been putting together for the book! I am just about to embark on a mini-trip to meet some of the London Waterstones' sellers in person, and hopefully I will manage to visit a few Waterstones that are further afield over the month. But I also intend to get round some of the independent shops in September, when the book comes out everywhere else, and to meet many more of the lovely booksellers and readers!
In the meantime, I’m starting to put together an events page on my website: www.peterbunzl.com with upcoming goings on….
And Usborne have put together a page for the book at: www.cogheart.com
More about Cogheart:
When 13-year-old Lily's inventor father vanishes after a Zeppelin crash, Lily's determined to hunt down the truth behind his disappearance, helped by Robert, the local clockmaker's son, and her wily mechanical fox Malkin. But shadowy figures are closing in and treachery lurks among the smoky spires of London - along with a life-changing secret.
Be swept away by airships and flabbergasted by dastardly plots in this extraordinary and wildly imaginative debut, bursting with invention and adventure.
