Carnival of the Lost
When Sheba the wolf girl joins the Carnival of the Lost - an extraordinary theatre troupe of performing artists - she feels, for the first time in her life, that she fits in and will have a chance of making friends. But her stage act is not all she has to think about. Children are being sucked into the waters of the Thames never to reappear. And there have been strange sightings of a mechanical monster at the scene of each crime. Because these children are the poorest of the poor, scavenging for treasure in the mud, their disappearances have been largely ignored. Until the Carnival of the Lost decide to get involved. They know firsthand that looks only tell half a story.
