About Isambard and the Cato Street Conspiracy 

 

As featured in the Independent’s Gifts for Teens 2021: Best for book worms 

 

London, 1820: Isambard is just like any other 16-year-old engineering genius until he stumbles across a radical plot to kill the Prime Minister. Things get complicated when he discovers that the conspiracy is being led by a French revolutionary supposedly executed 25 years earlier. With  the help of the eccentric Candlewick sisters, whose magical shop has a habit of losing itself in  the labyrinthine streets of Georgian London, Isambard defies his father and joins forces with the  Bow Street Runners. But none of them have any idea about the ancient magic they are taking on.

 Will a home-made messaging machine, a pair of telepathic stones and a talking gas be enough to help Isambard thwart the Cato Street Conspiracy?
