Read an exclusive preview of Another Twist in the Tale

This November we’re thrilled to be publishing Another Twist in the Tale – a brand new novel by Catherine Bruton, author of the Books Are My Bag Reader Awards winner, No Ballet Shoes In Syria.

This new story is a brilliantly-imagined, rip-roaring sequel to Dicken’s much-loved classic, Oliver Twist. Rediscover the Artful Dodger, Fagin, and Oliver himself, along with a host of fantastic new heroes and villains!

And today we’re incredibly pleased to share a video of Catherine introducing the book – and an exclusive preview of the first four chapters.

You have heard, no doubt, the tale of Master Oliver Twist – that rags-to-riches boy; the parish orphan who became heir to the Brownlow fortune. But what few know is that was a second Twist – a girl, brought into this world moments ahead of her brother.

This is the story of Twill Twist – and her journey through the gambling dens and workhouses of London, as she attempts to make a life for herself, rescue her friends, and uncover the mystery of her past – while meeting some familiar faces along the way…

And here’s a look inside the book:

Another Twist in the Tale will be in shops in November – you can pre-order it from Waterstones here, from Hive here, and from Amazon here.
