Review of Moonlocket

Moonlocket is the middle grade adventure involving two children, Lily and Robert, and their mechanical fox Malkin. The kids are both too smart to stay in the house all day, smart enough to follow the clues and naïve enough not to know when to quit. Malkin, refuses to be left behind even if he would rather not march into danger.

Along the way, the group picks up a new friend and gets help from automotons and maybe an adult or two — all while facing the bad guys and searching for Robert’s long, lost family. This is an amazing adventure for young readers and adults.

I love the colorful setting of a London with skies full of airships, streets narrow and crooked, and a treacherous underground river. I adore Lily and Robert, young and brave and full of heart! And Malkin is my favorite fictional mechanical fox.

Open book. Start reading. Loose yourself in the adventure!

Through Netgalley, the publisher provided a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
