Tick tock! Tick tock! Some stories are like that. Once you’ve wound them up, nothing will stop them. A tormented apprentice clock-maker. A deadly mechanical knight in armour. The sinister Dr Kalmenius, whom some say is the devil. Wind up these characters, fit them into a story on a cold winter’s evening with the snow swirling down, and suddenly life and the story begin to merge in a macabre and unstoppable way. Almost like clockwork… Like a strange and wonderful machine, this intricate tale brings its own cogs together to recreate what happened in a little German town one long-ago night…
- A dazzling, dark and intricately plotted short fairy tale
- Swirls with snow, danger, drama and gothic atmosphere
- Philip Pullman is the best-loved author of Northern Lights
- He has won the Carnegie Medal and the Whitbread Prize

“Deeply satisfying and deserves to become a classic.” TES
“It has the feel of a classic fairy tale. It’s the most elegantly constructed, chilling story.” Jacqueline Wilson
