What starts out as a normal day in Isambard Dunstan’s School for Wayward Children turns into a mad dash for Eric and twins Sadie and Saskia as they are pursued by madmen, wild dogs,  treasure seekers, and an otherworldly  visitor with a secret message.

Famed explorer and former thief Eric Morrisey Ganger and his mischievous sidekicks, twins Sadie and Saskia Dopple discover a whole new world beyond Isambard Dunstan’s School for Wayward Children and take the readers on an adventure through the new genre “illustra-novella” – a combination of art and traditional text

G. P. TAYLOR is the author of the best-selling novels Shadowmancer (a #1 New York Times bestseller that has been translated into twenty languages) and Wormwood. Before taking up writing full-time, he was an Anglican minister in the village of Cloughton, North Yorkshire. His books have sold over three million copies worldwide.
