Barnaby Grimes: Return of the Emerald Skull, Paperback / softback Book

Barnaby Grimes: Return of the Emerald Skull Paperback / softback

Part of the Barnaby Grimes series

Paperback / softback


Barnaby Grimes is a tick-tock lad, running errands in his city, day and night, and high-stacking around the rooftops in search of new mysteries to solve.

A fantastic romp through a Dickensian-style city, with a wonderful new hero in the guise of Barnaby.

After collecting a strange parcel from a deserted ship in the fog of the docks, and delivering it to the local schoolmaster, Barnaby thinks he's earned a moment to sit on the rooftops and eat his favourite pasty.

But soon he realises that all is not well at the school - but is the problem quite as he expects it?

A gruesome tale of a school overrun by a terrible curse - who will survive?
