The Peculiar (The Peculiar #1) by Stefan Bachmann
Publication Date: September 18th 2012
Published by: Greenwillow Books
Genre: Middle Grade, Fantasy
Don't get yourself noticed and you won't get yourself hanged.
In the faery slums of Bath, Bartholomew Kettle and his sister Hettie live by these words. Bartholomew and Hettie are changelings--Peculiars--and neither faeries nor humans want anything to do with them.
One day a mysterious lady in a plum-colored dress comes gliding down Old Crow Alley. Bartholomew watches her through his window. Who is she? What does she want? And when Bartholomew witnesses the lady whisking away, in a whirling ring of feathers, the boy who lives across the alley--Bartholomew forgets the rules and gets himself noticed.
First he's noticed by the lady in plum herself, then by something darkly magical and mysterious, by Jack Box and the Raggedy Man, by the powerful Mr. Lickerish . . . and by Arthur Jelliby, a young man trying to slip through the world unnoticed, too, and who, against all odds, offers Bartholomew friendship and a way to belong.
Part murder mystery, part gothic fantasy, part steampunk adventure, "The Peculiar" is Stefan Bachmann's riveting, inventive, and unforgettable debut novel.
The tour will run from January 13 to 24, 2012. We will be having guest posts, reviews, and a very special video Q&A from Stefan Bachmann himself! And what is a PBT book tour without an awesome giveaway for everyone?
This tour is created in coordination with National Bookstore and HarperCollins International.
