Praise for Hemlock Jones & The Underground Orphans
With sewers, rats and the odd pirate, this is an entertaining adventure with a strong female character and a great story that’s ideal for young readers. I can thoroughly recommend it.The Bookwormery
I think Hemlock is inspirational.Twelve-year-old Maggie
A gripping tale for any age, I strongly recommend it as it is beautifully written. I especially enjoyed the exciting and often foreboding atmosphere as Hemlock and Eddie try to discover what happened to the orphans.
