Jem Barbary spent most of his early life picking pockets for a wily old crook named Sarah Pickles—until she betrayed him. Now Jem wants revenge, but first he needs a new job. Luckily Alfred the bogler, the man who kills the child-eating monsters that hide in the shadows of Victorian London, needs a new apprentice. As more and more orphans disappear under mysterious circumstances, Alfred, Jem, and Birdie find themselves waging an underground war in a city where science clashes with superstition and monsters lurk in every alley.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Well paced and with details and dialogue that transport readers to the streets (and sewers) of Victorian London, there is much to enjoy in this excellent adventure series.”

    School Library Journal

  • “The darkly atmospheric setting creates a convincing backdrop for the frightening action scenes and flavorful period dialogue.”

    Booklist

  • “With a linear narrative, plenty of action and dialogue, and an ample smattering of colorful Victorian street language, this is a speedy, characterful yarn.”

    Horn Book

  • “This historical fantasy…is winningly rendered by narrator Mandy Williams…Williams is engaging as characters of all ages, professions, and personalities. Bogles live in dark places and sewers and must be killed in an elaborate manner that includes singing music hall songs, which are exuberantly sung by Williams. It’s particularly entertaining to hear former thief Jem mentally estimate the value of everyone’s possessions. Young listeners will learn how to handle themselves by using their wits rather than violence.”
