Harklights by Tim Tilley

 

Mark's mini-review:
A big-hearted fantasy novel with a love of nature and storytelling at its core. Harklights is a matchbox-packing workhouse, powered by unfortunate orphans and run by an evil mistress called Old Ma Bogey. Wick (named, as with all the orphans, after an object chosen by Old Ma Bogey) escapes into the surrounding forest to live among the hobs, a small but bold race of creatures who act as forest guardians. Wick finds the comfort of a home and a family. But he knows he must go back, not only to help those left behind, but to protect the forest from the outward-reaching evil of Harklights. Ideal 8-12yrs
