Petra Kronos has a simple, happy life. But it’s never been ordinary. She has a pet tin spider named Astrophil who likes to hide in her snarled hair and give her advice. Her best friend can trap lightning inside a glass sphere. Petra also has a father in faraway Prague who is able to move metal with his mind. He has been commissioned by the prince of Bohemia to build the world’s finest astronomical clock. Petra’s life is forever changed when, one day, her father returns home—blind. The prince has stolen his eyes, enchanted them, and now wears them. But why? Petra doesn’t know, but she knows this: she will go to Prague, sneak into Salamander Castle, and steal her father’s eyes back. Joining forces with Neel, whose fingers extend into invisible ghosts that pick locks and pockets, Petra finds that many people in the castle are not what they seem, and that her father’s clock has powers capable of destroying their world. 

Marie Rutkoski’s startling debut novel, about the risks we take to protect those we love, brims with magic, political intrigue, and heroism. The Cabinet of Wonders is a 2009 Bank Street Best Children’s Book of the Year.

    " I had a hard time getting into it (though I don't know why because the beginning was equally interesting) but when I finally was able to sit down in peace and read it for a long time I got really into it and I think it was absolutely amazing!!!! It is now one of my favorite books!! "

    " Pretty good, if a bit uneven. A complex story, slightly dark, mixing Eastern European Renaissance history with some magic and myth. Looking forward to the next one. "
