Clockwork Or All Wound Up




A brilliantly funny and moving tale of friendship from the multi-award winning, highly acclaimed Philip Pullman.

Tick, tock, tick, tock! Some stories are like that. Once you've wound them up, nothing will stop them . . .

On a dark and snowy night, a tormented clockwork apprentice makes a deal with a mysterious travelling inventor - a man who some say is the devil. But unbeknownst to the apprentice, and the girl with a perhaps too-kind heart who tries to help him, this is a story within a story, and events are already far beyond their control . . .
