A delight of a book: Paris seen from an aerial highwire. All the beauty of music and moonlight; stirring and magical stuff. Sophie is a foundling – found floating in a cello case as a baby after a shipwreck in the English Channel. Everyone thinks she’s an orphan. But Sophie knows different. Her mother is alive. On the run from the authorities, Sophie meets Matteo – a tightrope-walking boy who lives in the sky. In a race across the rooftops of Paris, can they find Sophie’s mother before time runs out?
- Winner of the Blue Peter Award and Waterstones Prize

- Set in a secret, sky-drenched world of rooftop urchins
“A writer with an utterly distinctive voice and a wild imagination.” Philip Pullman
