About the Book

A holiday story set in Steamkettle Bay, a large port city on the western coast of Industralia. This story features Letitica and Gerard Liddle, characters introduced in The Flight To Brassbright. Gerard is a talented inventor who has achieved a modest level of success with his practical yet whimsical household inventions. His wife Letitica is a very short, energetic woman who has a habit of mixing up her words, usually with hilarious results. Come along as we join the Liddles, along with their friends and neighbors, in a crowded yet cozy Steamkettle Bay neighborhood called The Narrows. Excitement is building as everyone prepares to welcome in the New Year of 1883.

There is a sense of history and logic (albeit logic through the lens of airships and clockwork robots) that makes the story easy to believe and invest in. Throughout, it never loses sight of that history or its underlying sense of wonder and fun. Legend’s look at the Brassbright world’s holiday tradition would make it an especially nice holiday read.
