It’s a warm Saturday in the summer of 1872, and somewhere in Steamkettle Bay, bad things are happening. Can Paisley Pockets and Christopher Cogan stop a crime in progress? They may be just a couple of kids, but where there’s a will and, some smarts, there just might be a way.

About the Book

Welcome to the busy, industrial port city of Steamkettle Bay, the second-largest city in all of Industralia. It’s filled with manufacturing factories, airship docks, inventors, artists, and lots and lots of streetwise, clever kids.

Can't wait to read more from this series. Such a fun feel to the setting and like able characters-makes you want to know what will happen next.
Quick read for adults, maybe a longer one for the kids it is intended for, that is much like watching an old episode of Our Gang shorts. No dreadful lace and velvets on these urchins!
This is a lovely tale, with fun characters that easily leap from the page into the imagination. The neo-Victorian world of Brassbright appeals, while neither being cloyingly sweet nor darkly dystopian. This is a short, sweet taste of a new-old world, and I look forward to visiting and getting more familiar with this place, its history, foibles, glories and its peoples, heroes and villains alike.
About the Author
Lori Alden Holuta

Lori Alden Holuta lives between the cornfields of mid-Michigan, where she grows vegetables, teas and herbs, when she’s not playing games with a cat named Chives. She’s fond of activities from the past, including canning and preserving, crocheting, reading in the dark, and cooking.

Her lifelong fascination with the Victorian era dovetails nicely with articles she has written for The Primgraph, a magazine which focused on historical eras in virtual worlds, as well as music and book reviews for Steampunk Magazine.
