9780099573661: Black Hearts in Battersea

'Wait, wait! Save us! What'll we do?'

     Simon is determined to become a painter when he grows up so he sets off to London to make his fortune. But the city is plagued by wolves and mysterious disappearances. The Twite household, where Simon is lodging, seems particularly shifty. Before he even gets a chance to open his glistening new paints Simon stumbles right into the centre of a plot to kill the King. And worse than that Simon is kidnapped and sent to sea! Luckily there are two friendly stowaways aboard -- the feisty Dido Twite and the spoiled young Justin. But when the ship catches fire things look pretty dire. Can they escape? Will they save the king in time?

About the Author:

JOAN AIKEN was born in Sussex in 1924. She said, "There were very few children of my age for miles around so books were my friends". She grew up eager to be a writer "What I wanted to do was give somebody else the absolute joy and excitement and pleasure that I had myself". Aiken wrote over a hundred books for young readers and adults. She is most famous for creating a historical period that never existed that began with The Wolves Of Willoughby Chase (1962) and continued with Black Hearts in Battersea (1964), The Whispering Mountain (1968), for which she won the Guardian children's book prize, and Dido and Pa (1986). Joan Aiken died in 2004.

Book Description Vintage. 1 Paperback(s), 2012. soft. Book Condition: New. Simon arrives in London to meet an old friend and to pursue the study of painting, in this follow-up to The Wolves of Willoughby Chase. Instead he finds himself unwittingly in the middle of a wicked crew's fiendish caper to overthrow the good King James and the Duke and Duchess of Battersea. With the help of his friend Sophie and the resourceful waif Dido, Simon tangles with wild wolves, poisoned pies, kidnapping, and a wrecked ship. A winner of the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize, Edgar Allan Poe Award, and Lewis Carroll Shelf Award, as well as a Commended Runner-up for the Carnegie Medal, Joan Aiken writes jaunty melodrama for readers 9 to 12 and those of us who never quite grew up, brimful with intrepid orphans, nefarious persons, and outrageous improbability. Since they began appearing in 1962, her Wolves of Willoughby Chase books—set in an alternate 19th-century England ruled by James III—have been devoured by generations of fans. 286.
