Barnaby Grimes: Return of the Emerald Skull Paperback
Part of the Barnaby Grimes series
Barnaby Grimes is a tick-tock lad, running errands in his city, day and night, and high-stacking around the rooftops in search of new mysteries to solve.
This is a fantastic romp through a Dickensian-style city, with a wonderful new hero in the guise of Barnaby.
After collecting a strange parcel from a deserted ship in the fog of the docks, and delivering it to the local schoolmaster, Barnaby thinks he's earned a moment to sit on the rooftops and eat his favourite pasty.
But soon he realises that all is not well at the school - but is the problem quite as he expects it?
A gruesome tale of a school overrun by a terrible curse - who will survive?
