Illustrated by Rubio, Ayesha L.

Five amazing children . . . one most un-ordinary adventure. "A compelling, gorgeously-written story about the power of friendship and the true meaning of family . . . perfection!"Robin Stevens, author of Murder Most Unladylike "A high-speed, witty, absurd and joyful adventure." K...atherine Rundell, author of Rooftoppersand The Good Thieves In the autumn of 1886, Elinora Gassbeek, matron of the Little Tulip Orphanage discovers five new babies in most extraordinary circumstances: One in a tin toolbox. One in a coal bucket. One in a picnic hamper. One in a wheat sack. And finally, one in a coffin-shaped basket. Those babies were Lotta, Egbert, Fenna, Sem and Milou. Growing up together, these five children know their individuality is what makes them so special - and so determined to stay together. Then a most sinister gentleman appears and threatens to tear them apart. The gang decide to make a daring escape, fleeing the frozen canals of Amsterdam for an adventure packed with puppets and pirate ships, clock-makers and cruel villains - and with only a scrap of a clue to guide them. But is their real home - and their real family - already closer than they realise? "A corker of a story." Emma Carroll, author of Letters to the Lighthouse "A book to absolutely fall in love with." Cerrie Burnell, author of The Girl with the Shark's Teeth
