The Clockwork Three

Author: Matthew J. Kirby

  • AGES 8 - 12 
  • Genre Adventure,Fantasy
Three ordinary children are brought together by extraordinary events...
Giuseppe is an orphaned street musician from Italy, who was sold by his uncle to work as a slave for an evil padrone in the U.S. But when a mysterious green violin enters his life he begins to imagine a life of freedom. Hannah is a soft-hearted, strong-willed girl from the tenements, who supports her family as a hotel maid when tragedy strikes and her father can no longer work. She learns about a hidden treasure, which she knows will save her family — if she can find it. And Frederick, the talented and intense clockmaker's apprentice, seeks to learn the truth about his mother while trying to forget the nightmares of the orphanage where she left him. He is determined to build an automaton and enter the clockmakers' guild — if only he can create a working head.
Together, the three discover they have phenomenal power when they team up as friends, and that they can overcome even the darkest of fears.
Praise for The Clockwork Three : * "Debut novelist Kirby has assembled all the ingredients for a rousing adventure, which he delivers with rich, transporting prose. Mixing fantasy and steampunk elements with subtle urban mythology, [Kirby's] story can be read as a modern morality play or a satisfying stand-alone tale." — Publishers Weekly starred review
"The characters are rich and rewarding; readers will want to read about their lives and will be rooting for a happy ending." — Voices of Youth Advocates
"A lovely debut and an author clearly worth watching in the future." — School Library Journal Fuse News
"A strong debut effort with memorable characters, hearty action, and palpable atmospherics." — Booklist
