~Sarah

Bess has always loved her grandfather’s collection of curiosities. So she’s delighted when she’s handed the keys to his Odditorium. But unless she finds a way to draw in the crowds, she’ll have to close its doors for good.

When a mysterious train pulls into town, bound for The Land of Halloween Sweets, Bess sneaks onboard. She is soon discovered by Beau the puppeteer, Louis the violinist and Maria the fire witch. Eager to join their adventure, Bess sets out to search for the rarest sweet of all – the ghostly gobstopper.

But the land is ruled by the fearsome Candymaker. And beneath the sugary surface, things are more dangerous than they first appear…

Alex Bell has written multiple books for both adults and young people, including Frozen Charlotte, a Zoella Book Club pick, and The Polar Bear Explorers’ Club. After training as a lawyer, she now works at the Citizens Advice Bureau. Alex lives in Hampshire with her husband, sons and demanding Siamese cat.
