Mel Foster and the rag-tag heroes of the Monster Resistance are back in this exciting fantasy adventure from award-winning author Julia Golding. How do you catch an international treasure thief who can TRAVEL IN TIME? That’s the fiendish challenge that faces Mel Foster, Eve Frankenstein and their friends when priceless items begin vanishing all over the world. The Mona Lisa …Queen Victoria’s Crown Jewels …nothing is safe! But the next item on the thief’s list is no diamond. It’s Mel himself. Before Mel knows it he’s been kidnapped and stranded in the past.
He’s back in time, and back in trouble! On Mel’s second monstrously big adventure he encounters famous and unusual heroes, and more than a couple of villains: Quasimodo the Younger, Mowgli and his wolf pack, and a cheery young pickpocket by the name of the Artful Dodger. The time-twisting follow up to Mel Foster and the Demon Butler, winner of a Primary Teacher Bronze Award 2015. This warm and witty gothic tale from the author of the Costa award-winning Cat Royal series will be perfect for 9+ fans of Chris Riddell’s Goth Girl and Terry Pratchett’s Dodger, and lovers of historical adventure.
