Pendleton Blackbird (Fran’s Summer Holiday #2: July)
November 1812, in the quiet town of Nutmeg, England.
All Pendleton Bloke wants to do is embroidery and ballroom dancing, but his brothers and father think those are sissy things to do. The only supporter he has is his Grandmother, Natalia Blackbird, grand dressmaker to European Royalty. Unfortunately she’s been dead forty years.
Pendleton sees his chance when a mysterious seamstress arrives in town. There’s just one problem; she’s betrothed to the strange and sinister Mr Dorian King. Also she’s a sorceress. And also Mr King turns out to be the emperor of the Molemen and also she’s actually been kidnapped by him and taken to the Faery Valley where he plans to sacrifice her for some reason. Okay, so let’s make that several problems.
It looks like Pendleton will have to go on an adventure! With the help of Natalia’s ghost and a very clever parrot called Duke, Pendleton must use his snazzy dance moves and trusty sowing kit to save the day…
