A Most Peculiar Toy Factory cover

Bestselling author Alex Bell serves up mystery and dark humour aplenty in this Roald Dahl-esque middle-grade tale of toys brought to life.

Shadows of teddy bears flit across windows. Dolls whisper behind closed doors. Something has gone very wrong at Hoggle's Happy Toys. But five years after shutting its doors, the toy factory is opening again, and Tess Pipps has found herself a job there. As she and her siblings start their first day of work, they are about to discover what dark secrets are lurking inside the factory's walls … A creepy mystery adventure packed with Willy Wonka-inspired humour and characters. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+

"Full of deliciously dark humour and hints of Dhal – a creepy, zippy read, not the faint-hearted!" – Library Girl and Book Boy, Blog

"Hugely enjoyable … There’s going to be plenty of adults who will enjoy this one too!" – The Letterpress Project
