"...intriguing contraptions, appealing characters, snide villains, humor, and an exciting story." — Kirkus Reviews
On a world where rhymes and fairy-tales are real, a secret society’s influence is crumbling. The Tub, led for decades by a butcher, a baker, and a candle stick maker, is no longer able to protect its allies like master inventor, Nikolas Klaus.
Rumors of a revolutionary invention has a rival secret society hunting for its plans. When an agent arrives on the doorstep of the long-thought dead Klaus, his granddaughter Tee, and her best friends, Elly and Richy, get caught in the fray. Will Klaus’ secrets cost them all dearly?
Series gets more intense as it goes (like Harry Potter) and uses humor to balance out the darker moments.
