  • How to Catch a Bogle

    Catherine Jinks, Mandy Williams, Listening Library (Audio)

    Audiobook (Listening Library, )
    As a bogler's apprentice, 10-year-old Birdie has faced down plenty of monsters lurking in the chimneys, wells, and other dark places of Victorian London. She serves as bait, singing sweetly to lure the bogles out so her master, the well-seasoned Go-Devil Man Alfred Bunce, can kill them with his trusty spear. Enter the wealthy folklorist Miss Eames, who is determined to find more scientific ways of drawing out the monsters, and Birdie fears that her livelihood may be threatened by the well-meaning lady. Meanwhile, orphans are disappearing and a bogle is suspected, but Alfred and Birdie discover something even more sinister at work. The first in a projected trilogy, this book treats readers to a lively, engaging story with an endearing protagonist at its center. Capable, forthright, and street-wise, Birdie fairly leaps off the page with pluck, intelligence, and courage. Historical details are woven in to ensure that readers are firmly ensconced in Victorian London, where bogles may be waiting to snatch unsuspecting children, but they are certainly not the only danger to be had. The well-paced story builds to an exciting climax as each bogle encounter raises the stakes and Birdie and Alfred face a decision that will change their lives. While this particular adventure is wrapped up nicely, readers will be delighted that the stage is set for future bogling exploits.

  • How to Catch a Bogle

    Catherine Jinks, Sarah Watts

    eBook (HMH Books for Young Readers, Sept. 3, 2013)
    Many orphans in Victorian England must resort to begging—but Birdie is busy catching monsters… If ever a chill entered her soul, or the hope suddenly drained from her heart, she knew a bogle was to blame… Birdie McAdam, a ten-year-old orphan, is tougher than she looks. She's proud of her job as apprentice to Alfred the Bogler, a man who catches monsters for a living. Birdie lures the bogles out of their lairs with her sweet songs—and Alfred kills them before they kill her. On the mean streets of Victorian England, hunting bogles is actually less dangerous work than mudlarking for scraps along the vile river Thames. Or so it seems, until the orphans of London start to disappear… This historical fantasy for young readers features an “action-packed story and likable characters” along with a heroine to cheer for (School Library Journal). “Pitch-perfect.”—Booklist (starred review)
