Blue Willow Bookshop presents Catherine Jinks Thursday, September 26, 5:00 p.m. Catherine Jinks will discuss and sign her new novel for kids, HOW TO CATCH A BOGLE.In HOW TO CATCH A BOGLE, Birdie McAdam, a ten-year-old orphan, is tougher than she looks. She's proud of her job as apprentice to Alfred the Bogler, a man who catches monsters for a living. Birdie lures the bogles out of their lairs with her sweet songs, and Alfred kills them before they kill her.On the mean streets of Victorian England, hunting bogles is actually less dangerous work than mudlarking for scraps along the vile river Thames. (See glossary!) Or so it seems—until the orphans of London start to disappear . . .About the Author:Catherine Jinks, winner of a Centenary Medal for her contribution to Australian childrens literature, is the author of many books for children of all ages, including the acclaimed Evil Genius trilogy. She lives with her family in New South Wales, Australia.Visit her website at www.catherinejinks.com.
