Deep in the dark and murky streets of Victorian London, Rose, Ned and Lily are running away from the orphanage and heading to the docks. They want to escape to America and a new life. But in the shadows lurks that infamous murderer Mack the Knife... A dreadful fate looks certain until that original and most unusual of superheroes, Spring-Heeled Jack, leaps through the air to their rescue, but the adventure doesn't end there...

Industry Reviews

"A Victorian escapade which will be welcomed, indeed chortled over, by anyone subtle enough to relish the Beano . . . High melodrama, driven by anarchic, breathless plots . . . Print is interspersed with illustrations-plus-speech-bubbles which you must read to stick with the story" * TES * "A fantastic adventure which will have even reluctant readers hiding under the cover with a torch" * Sunday Express * "A masterly storyteller" * Independent Weekend * "A gripping story written in words and cartoons" * Recent Children's Fiction *
