9780099456650: Cuckoo Tree

When Dido Twite sets foot back on English soil, more mischief awaits. As her friend Captain Hughes recovers from a carriage accident, Dido stays at the Dogkennel Cottages and meets the odd inhabitants of Tegleaze Manor: strange old Lady Tegleaze, her nephew, Tobit, and his wizened, witchy nurse, Sannie. Soon suspicious things happen. A priceless miniature is stolen. Tobit is framed and then kidnapped. A twin sister is found. And when Dido catches a glimpse of her rascally father in Petworth, she is sure she’s in the midst of another Hanoverian plot. Can she get to London to warn the king and save St. Paul's Cathedral from sliding into the Thames?

About the Author:

Joan Aiken, daughter of the American writer Conrad Aiken, was born in Rye, Sussex, England, and has written more than sixty books for children, including The Wolves of Willoughby Chase.

Review:

“For all Joan Aiken fans who delight in her special brand of suspense and mystery, she has now concocted a parade of circumstances and characters resulting in a historical spoof that focuses on a wild scheme to foil the coronation of James IV.” Publishers Weekly

“Immensely exciting, weird, and funny, Miss Aiken is at her best.” --London Evening Standard

“The author is better at creating villains than anybody since Dickens.” — Time Magazine Time Magazine
