The Extraordinaires #1: The Extinction Gambit by Michael Pryor

We are very lucky in our area to have so many terrific writers of books for children.  One of them is Michael Pryor who embarks on a new series called The Extraordinaires.  Book 1, The Extinction Gambit comes out in December, and to celebrate we are helping Michael launch his new book at the Northcote Library at 4pm on Wednesday December 7th.  Bookings can be made online at Darebinlibraries, on by phone on 1300 655 355.  We will there selling the new book and Michael will be able to sign it for you.

The book is an adventure set in London in 1908.  The two main characters are Kingsley a young man who wants to be a magician.  His off sider is Evadne, an albino juggler who is extremely smart and has some surprising skills.   It’s a rollicking tale which goes into the underworld and Kingsley and Evadne meet a range of characters, some bad, some good, but all of them with a tale to tell.  It’s terrific, and can given to both boys and girls 11 up.   Highly recommended.  Paperback, $18.95
