Arthur (Art) Mumby and his irritating sister Myrtle live with their father in the huge and rambling house, Larklight, travelling through space on a remote orbit far beyond the Moon. One ordinary sort of morning they receive a correspondence informing them that a gentleman is on his way to visit, a Mr Webster. Visitors to Larklight are rare if not unique, and a frenzy of preparation ensues. But it is entirely the wrong sort of preparation, as they discover when their guest arrives, and a Dreadful and Terrifying (and Marvellous) adventure begins. It takes them to the furthest reaches of Known Space, where they must battle the evil First Ones in a desperate attempt to save each other - and the Universe. Recounted through the eyes of Art himself, Larklight is sumptuously designed and illustrated throughout.

About the Author:

Philip Reeve's first novel Mortal Engines was published to an incredible critical acclaim which his subsequent books have emulated. He is the author of the Larklight trilogy for Bloomsbury. Philip lives in Devon. David Wyatt, has illustrated many beautiful covers for authors including Terry Pratchett and Philip Pullman. He lives in Devon, and is a keen lutist, cyclist, and wanderer of the moors.

From AudioFile:

Philip Reeve has written a rollicking space adventure as an alternative Victorian reality. The British Empire spans the universe, gravity is measured in British Standard Gravity (BSG), and the moon is a convict colony for petty criminals. Greg Steinbruner deftly narrates the tale of Art Mumby and his sister Myrtle making an emergency escape from Larklight, their rambling home in space, and signing up with space pirates in order to save the Empire from an army of enormous spiders. Steinbruner portrays Art as a kind of "Boy's Own" chap with old-fashioned attitudes but daring and gung-ho. When the two siblings are separated, we get Myrtle's prim and proper diary with both swoon and spunk. Marvelous fun for child and adult alike.
