This August we’re absolutely thrilled to be publishing Mouse Heart – an atmospheric new thriller, full of daring stunts and sinister villains, from the bestselling Fleur Hitchcock.
And today we’re very pleased to be sharing the first few chapters of the book – you can read an extract below!
Mouse, a foundling, loves her pieced-together family at the Moth Theatre fiercely. When their leading man, Walter, is wrongly arrested for murder, Mouse swears she’ll free him. But another member of the cast has a secret identity - as a ruthless killer. As Mouse’s investigation leads her ever closer to their true, deadly nature, can she outwit them without losing everything she holds dear?
Mouse Heart, a masterfully told adventure, is perfect escapism for readers aged 9+ and for fans of Philip Pullman, Katherine Rundell and Philip Reeve.
Take a look inside:
Mouse Heart will be published on August 4th – you can order a copy from Waterstones here, Bookshop.org here, or from Amazon here.
