The Wonderling

Welcome to the Home for Wayward and Misbegotten Creatures, an institution run by evil

Miss Carbunkle, a cunning villainess who believes her terrified young charges exist only to

serve and suffer. Part animal and part human, the groundlings toil in classroom and

factory, forbidden to enjoy anything regular children have, most particularly singing and

music. For the Wonderling, an innocent hearted, one-eared, fox-like eleven-year-old with

only a number rather than a proper name – a 13 etched on a medallion around his neck –

it is the only home he has ever known. But unexpected courage leads him to acquire the

loyalty of a young bird Groundling named Trinket, who gives the Home’s loneliest

inhabitant two incredible gifts: a real name – Arthur, like the good king in the old stories.

– And a best friend. Using Trinket’s ingenious invention, the pair escape over the wall and

embark on an adventure that will take them out into the wider world and ultimately down

the path of sweet Arthur’s true destiny.
