The Toymaker
Jeremy de Quidt

What good is a toy that will wind down? What if you could put a heart in one? A real heart. One that beat and beat and didn't stop. What couldn't you do if you could make a toy like that?

From the moment Mathias becomes the owner of a mysterious piece of paper, he is in terrible danger. Entangled in devious plots and pursued by the sinister Doctor Leiter and his devilish toys, Mathias finds himself on a quest to uncover a deadly secret.

Reviews of The Toymaker

"Pacy, exciting and inventive" (Guardian)

"The sense of menace is maintained throughout and culminates in a chilling climax. Simply and effectively written and very visual, it all fits together like clockwork" (The Bookseller)

"Fantastic story set in an imaginary world" (School Librarian)

"This is a world of shadows and terror told with the utmost conviction. A remarkable debut novel" (Enid Stephenson Carousel)
