What was something you created as a child?
THE INVENTORS AT No.8 is a MG novel about the unlukist boy in London and a wonderful adventure.
George is an orphan who must sell everything he owns or lose his house. When his family's last heirloom, a priceless map to the Star of Victory, is stolen by a group of criminals, George knows that there is no one less lucky - or more alone - than he is.
That is, until Ada Byron, the future Countess of Lovelace, bursts into his life. She promises to help George recover his birthright and restore his family's good name and is determined to find her own father along the way - all in a flying machine she built herself. Joined by a boy with a mysterious past and a mischevios orangutang, George and Ada take off on a cross continent journey through skies that will change their lives, and perhaps the world, forever.
