This beautiful trilogy features three incredible stories from the life and times of a Victorian shoeshine boy, Edward Croydon. (Also known as Fingers the Pickpocket.)
As an infant, Fingers was abandoned by his parents in the town cemetery, to fend for himself on the streets. Thankfully, he was rescued by another street urchin, his guardian angel, and taken to the sanctuary of a secret attic hideaway.
In this series of three stories we find out how Fingers rescued a lost Boston terrier and became entwined in a dastardly attempt to commit an audacious bank robbery.
We also find out the identity of the mysterious guardian angel and discover why Fingers was abandoned on the streets, all those years ago.
Finally, we learn how Fingers came to find sanctuary at a local children’s home and how he foiled an attempt to steal the children’s dreams, by a corrupt local business man.
These three exciting steampunk stories by Maxwell Grantly have many beautiful illustrations that will enchant and captivate readers of all ages.
