Since I was introduced to the works of Terry Pratchett by a couple of
dear friends about ten years ago, there has not been a fall season that
hasn’t included a book by him. This fall brings us a stand alone novel called Dodger
that tells the story of an artful young street urchin trying to figure
out the whys and werefores of an assault upon a strange girl. A deft
combination of fantasy and history, Dodger rubs elbows with such
characters as Charles Dickens, Benjamin Disraeli, and Sweeny Todd. Sure
to be a great read for any age.

— Joe


Beloved and bestselling author Sir Terry Pratchett's Dodger, a Printz Honor Book, combines high comedy with deep wisdom in a tale of one remarkable boy's rise in a fantasy-infused Victorian London.

Seventeen-year-old Dodger is content as a sewer scavenger. But he enters a new world when he rescues a young girl from a beating, and her fate impacts some of the most powerful people in England.

From Dodger's encounter with the mad barber Sweeney Todd, to his meetings with the great writer Charles Dickens and the calculating politician Benjamin Disraeli, history and fantasy intertwine in a breathtaking account of adventure and mystery.
