A whirlwind of a story with talking tigers, a knitting elephant and a sinister monkey. In the Kingdom of Broken Magic, who can you trust?
Streetwise pickpockets, Maggie and Josh, are inseparable. Only their friendship makes life bearable at the Scribbens Home for Very Wayward Children, run by the villainous Miss Scribbens. But when Maggie encounters a strange and sinister circus, she abandons Josh and tumbles headfirst into a world of dangerous and dazzling magic. She’s determined to solve the mystery of its disappearing performers and animals. Where do they go? Who is the mastermind behind it all? Josh sets out to find Maggie, unaware of the dark dangers that lie ahead.
Vibrantly visual, in The Kingdom of Broken Magic Aziz has created a richly-imagined world that fizzes with drama and big themes, and all delivered in an energetic style that will engage 8+-year-old adventure-lovers.
The Kingdom of Broken Magic is a spectacularly surreal and brilliantly bizarre adventure that completely captured me in its unique magic.
A fabulous middle-grade story that is gripping, nail biting whilst covering themes of friendship, history and equality and diversity
