‘Aim High, Prepare to Achieve’

Autumn 2

Our class text is.....


Lily's life is in mortal peril. Her father is missing and now silver-eyed men stalk her through the shadows. What could they want from her?


With her friends -  Robert, the clockmaker's son, and Malakin, her mechanical fox - Lily is plunged into a murky and menacing world. Too soon Lily realises that those she holds dear may be the very ones to break her heart......



Cogheart by Peter Bunzl is a fantastic tale of murder, mayhem and mystery set against the backdrop of a reimagined, Victorian London. Packed full of vibrant characters (not least our feisty heroine, Lily), weird and wonderful steampunk creations and a menacing world that jumps off the page.
