Splendors and Glooms

by Laura Amy Schlitz

When Clara vanishes after
the puppeteer Grisini and two orphaned assistants were at her birthday party,
suspicion of kidnapping chases them away from London. The two orphans
find themselves caught in a trap set by Grisini’s ancient rival, a witch with a
deadly inheritance to shed before it’s too late. This story is full of twists
and turns and is truly what its title makes it out to be: Splendors and Glooms. For ages 10+.
