From the bestselling author of Darwin's Dragons
comes a high-stakes aquatic adventure, perfect for fans of The
Murderer's Ape!
England, 1893, and aquarium fever is at its height.
Twelve-year-old Vinnie Fyfe works in the tea-shop at Brighton
aquarium, and waits for her milliner mother to return from Paris.
The arrival of a giant octopus changes her life for ever. Discovering
a talent for art, Vinnie begins to draw the extraordinary
beast.
She soon realises she can communicate with the octopus through
colour and – as a gripping mystery begins to unfold –
discovers what true courage really means ...

The second middle-grade historical adventure by critically
acclaimed Lindsay Galvin, author of Darwin's Dragons
A gripping Victorian mystery with a touching connection
between a young girl and an octopus at its heart
Strong STEM and natural history themes with an underwater
twist
Effortlessly blends exciting adventure with a rip-roaring
historical mystery and non-fiction elements
 
PRAISE FOR DARWIN'S DRAGONS:
'A striking and original adventure ... just the sort of story
I love.' EMMA CARROLL
'WHAT a voyage! [Darwin's Dragons] is everything
you hope it will be ...' LUCY STRANGE
'[A] beautifully fictionalised story' THE TELEGRAPH
