The Grimstones: Hatched
£6.99 paperback Allen & Unwin (2012)
Meet Martha Grimstone, a girl trying to find her own special talent in the world, in this sweetly gothic fairytale told in a collage of words, photos and drawings.
Hello, my name is Martha Grimstone. Shall I tell you my best secret? One day I'm going to be Lady Martha the Magnificent. I don't know what my special talent is, but I hope to find it any day now.
I live in a grand old house in a valley full of rare and precious herbs, which my grandfather uses to heal and comfort people. But they haven't worked on Mama; she cries a lake of tears every night. If only I could get into Grandpa Grimstone's apothecary and work my very own spell!
Hatched is a gothic fairytale about a girl who keeps her secrets safe between two pieces of cardboard, a mother who sews garments lined with love, and a giant egg that seems to take forever to hatch.
"I LOVE the Grimstones. Martha is the perfect heroine for little (and big) girls who find that a pen and a trusty diary are the best way to make sense of a crazy world."
(Lisa Forrest - Australian Olympian + author)
