by Pádraig Kenny
£6.99   paperback  Chicken House Ltd (2018)

Tin by Pádraig Kenny Christopher is ‘Proper’: a real boy with a real soul, orphaned in a fire. He works for an engineer, a maker of the eccentric, loyal and totally individual mechanicals who are Christopher’s best friends.
But after a devastating accident, a secret is revealed and Christopher’s world is changed for ever... What follows is a remarkable adventure, as Christopher discovers who he really is, and what it means to be human.
Pinocchio meets The Wizard of Oz with a hint of Northern Lights in this stunning debut from Pádraig Kenny.
