I came to Tumblewater just an innocent orphan, and had to grow up fast. I became the storyteller of this place, sticking to the shadows, staying out of sight and seeing all manner of dark things. Follow me, don't make a sound and we both might escape with our lives.
The very damp world of Tumblewater is home to some appallingly sick characters and goings-on, as newcome Daniel Dorey is quick to discover. Before he knows it, he is drawn into the town's vivid culture of storytelling, encountering a sinister tale at every twist and turn. But, Daniel comes to wonder, what is real and what is fiction?
Bruno Vincent was a bookseller and book editor before he was an author. His humour books for grown-ups, co-authored with Jon Butler, were national bestsellers and have been translated into seven languages. The TUMBLEWATER books are his first for children. Bruno lives in London and is available for events.
