Product description

Inspired by the Tin Man’s story! Can a boy made of metal have a soul, or a mission, or a real story? Or are those things just for ‘proper’ humans like Christopher? He’s lucky enough to be a real boy with a real soul. The only thing he doesn’t have is parents. He was orphaned in a fire many years ago. Christopher works for an engineer who makes mechanical people. These loyal, quirky beings are Christopher’s best friends. But when an accident reveals a dark secret, this kid’s happy world is changed forever. What does it mean to be human? And is it really so special anyway?

  • A storming middle-grade adventure by a debut Irish talent
  • A heartfelt tale of humanity, adventure, war and belonging
  • Pinocchio meets The Wizard of Oz for fans of Cogheart
  • Set in an alternative 1930s England of quirky characters
