Doodled Rare Book Alert - Exclusive From the Publishers of Harry Potter + This Weekend

Good Evening!

From the publishers of Harry Potter comes new first-time author Jon Mayhew with a brilliant mystery adventure story Mortlock. It’s an original tale of two brave twins who take on the forces of evil while they piece together their extraordinary history. The sister is a knife-thrower in a magician’s stage act, the brother an undertaker’s assistant. Neither orphan knows of the other’s existence. Until, that is, three terrible Aunts descend on the girl’s house and imprison her guardian, the Great Cardamom. His dying act is to pass the girl a note with clues to the secret he carries to his grave. Cardamom was one of three explorers on an expedition to locate the legendary Amarant, a plant with power over life and death. Now, pursued by flesh-eating crow-like ghuls, brother and sister must decode the message and save themselves from its sinister legacy.

In our opinion quite simply one of the best children’s books released this year. The publishers at Bloomsbury have put a lot of thought into this books design. Each book has fabulous red endpapers and the page edges have been finished in black.

Jon Mayhew has signed, lined, dated, numbered and doodled some exquisite rare books exclusively for our collectors. Every first edition book has a full numberline and is in fine/fine condition. To view the books CLICK HERE

So start your collection today!

Have a great night!

Best wishes,


PS Coming soon this weekend a world exclusive fiction title from the publishers of The Name of the Wind.
