One moment I was standing there, sword raised, knees trembling. The next, in a blur of fur and fury, the hellish creature was flying towards me, its huge front paws extended and savage claws aiming straight at my hammering heart...

Barnaby Grimes is a tick-tock lad - he'll deliver any message anywhere anytime. As fast as possible. Tick-tock - time is money! But strange things are afoot. One moonlit night, as Barnaby highstacks above the city, leaping from roof to roof, gutter to gable, pillar to pediment, a huge beast attacks. He barely escapes with his life. And now his friend Old Benjamin has disappeared. Download and start listening now!

    " This is one of the best books i have ever read i recommend it to anybody and everybody "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 shadesofmaybe | 2/8/2014

    " Quite nice, partly a bit too brutish considering it's meant for children/teenagers. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 X | 1/28/2014

    " Largely predicatable and surprisingly bloody with a hero who I found annoyingly arrogant. The Victorian era setting was nice though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joenna | 1/13/2014

    " Barnaby Grimes is a highstacker which means he jumps from building to building, delivering messages around the city of London. One night, he comes across deep yellow eyes and very sharp teeth, a werewolf. Barnaby knows that Dr. Callwander's famous elixer has something to do with all the vicious attacks happening. Barnaby must figure it out, before he himself falls victim to a werewolf or worse, becomes one himself. "

    " I guess I am not quite the right demographic for this one, but I found it really quite boring. Fortunately, a quick skim and the book was done. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sophie | 1/4/2014

    " Quick, pleasant read. Plot was a bit disappointing, as it was fairly predictable just a few chapters in. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stefanie | 12/12/2013

    " Good fast read. While I enjoyed "The Edge Chronicles" a lot more, my nine year old will love it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janie Hepler | 11/26/2013

    " I liked this one just as much as the second (yes, I read them out of order.) The mystery was a bi easier to figure out, but it was just as enthralling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betsy | 8/10/2013

    " Undoubtedly my favorite Paul Stewart book. He's always kind of disappointed me in the past, y'know? Never really lived up this potential. This book marks a change, delving into a pseudo-Victorian style that's fun, fast-paced, and far better than anything he's done before. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Qt | 8/10/2013

    " I liked it :-) I liked the London setting and the interesting concept. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aubrey | 12/10/2012

    " I was equal parts terrified and excited, reading the entire series was amazing!!!!!!!! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ryan | 10/7/2012

    " I usually love books set in England. This one left something to be desired. Even for the strong verbs and verbose action scenes, I couldn't get through the first CD. How do you make a scene like getting attacked by a werewolf boring? Just make sure we don't care at all about the main character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynne North | 2/1/2012

    " Good book, but I found it a bit predictable.I sometimes also found the main character a bit too fond of himself! Despite that, I read it to the end, and would check out the authors again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 1/19/2012

    " I like the old fashion feeling of London in this book. It was predictable but I thought it was pretty good anyway. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 11/28/2011

    " Not as scary as I would have liked but a good read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erica | 10/15/2011

    " Quick easy read. Takes place in Victorian London. I had the mystery figured out very early. I would give it 2 1/2 stars because it was predictable and I didn't really connect with the main character. I am still going to read the next book. I liked The Edge Chronicles series a lot better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bianca | 7/18/2011

    " This was a fun, quick read I can only hope to get my hands on any others in the series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Isabella | 6/17/2011

    " really good, but also creppy. and the writing style is a little different, but good. and i love the illustrations! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wyntrnoire | 2/7/2011

    " A fun read and I'll try others in the series. The artwork gets 5 stars. "

    " These books plunge you into a strange and mythical world. Explore it with Barnaby and find out whats going on in the dar side of town. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen | 10/25/2009

    " I listened to this one and enjoyed the action and intrigue but felt the kids would be too weighed down in period language and references since it takes place in 1800s England. "

    " Not my favorite Paul Stewart/Chris Riddell book. A quick read, though, and fans of the slightly gruesome will probably enjoy the read. "
