Jamrach's Menagerie

by Carol Birch
£8.99   paperback  Canongate Books Ltd (2011)

Jamrach Young Jaffy Brown never expects to escape the slums of Victorian London. Then, aged eight, a chance encounter with Mr Jamrach changes Jaffy's stars. And before he knows it, he finds himself at the docks waving goodbye to his beloved Ishbel and boarding a ship bound for the Indian Ocean. With his friend Tim at his side, Jaffy's journey will push faith, love and friendship to their utmost limits.

"An imaginative tour-de-force encompassing the sights and smells of 19th-century London and the wild sea...Gripping, superbly written and a delight"
