orphaned in a fire. He works for an engineer, a maker of the
eccentric, loyal and totally individual mechanicals who are Christopher's
best friends.
But after a devastating accident, a secret is revealed and Christopher's
world is changed for ever ... What follows is a
remarkable adventure, as Christopher discovers who he really is,
and what it means to be human.

A heartfelt tale of humanity, adventure and belonging,

Pinocchio meets The Wizard of Oz with
a hint of Northern Lights as a boy and his mechanical
friends discover the truth about his past.
A thought-provoking and timely novel, with strong themes
of friendship, war and what it really means to be human.
