The Extraordinary Adventures Of Horatio Lyle by Catherine Webb

Defying current clich?of children�s fiction, the novel has evil forces that believe in restoring the planet to its natural state � even if that means murdering people � while the hero has faith in the industrical revolution and the potential of technology. Lyle is assisted in his helter-skelter adventure by a wealthy youth and by Tess, a delightfully cheeky child thief. Best of all is the detailed evocation of Victorian London. NICOLETTE JONES
