The Mourning Emporium

By: Michelle Lovric

BOOK TALK

Bajamonte Tiepolo is back, spreading his magic across the globe--from the island of Hooroo in the South Pacific to London, where Queen Victoria is on her death bed.  Now there are two cities in peril.  Teo, the Undrowned Child, disguises herself as a boy and joins Renzo on baord the Scilla, a floating orphanage for boys.  They sail for London, where they suspect Bajamonte is gathering an army to destroy both it and Venice.  They meet mermaids, mourning children, a talking bulldog , and must survive the ruthless Miss Uish, who controls the Scilla like it's a prison--but nothing can prepare Teo for the horros she discovers in Bajamonte's hidden manufactory.
