Title: The Bookseller’s Apprentice

Written by: Amelia Mellor 

 

Award-winning author
Australian author

Longlisted The Indie Book Awards 2023

Award-winning author Amelia Mellor delivers another race-against-time adventure in this action-packed prequel to The Grandest Bookshop in the World.

Twelve-year-old Billy Pyke has a talent for sorting things out, whether it's his chaotic family home or the busy bookstall at Paddy's Market. In 1871, the market is the loud, smelly, marvellous heart of Melbourne, and Billy is delighted to work at the bookstall there for the eccentric Mr Cole.

When his new friend, Kezia, warns him of a sinister magician called the Obscurosmith, Billy can't believe her stories of magical deals gone horribly wrong – until he sees them happening. And the night that the Obscurosmith crosses a terrifying and dangerous line, Billy realises that if he wants the Obscurosmith stopped, he'll have to do it himself.

Loaded with tricks, riddles, magic and mayhem, The Bookseller’s Apprentice is perfect for Mellor fans and newcomers alike.
