Dodger by Terry Pratchett (HarperCollins) The Most Thrilling Science Fiction and Fantasy Books Coming in September!
The Discworld author pays homage to Dickens in this Victorian novel for kids — Dodger, based on the Artful Dodger, is a scamp in London, who saves a young noblewoman who’s fleeing an abusive husband. Soon, they’re both on the run from an international assassin, and running into Victorian characters including Benjamin Disraeli, Sweeney Todd, and Charles Dickens himself. Sounds frightfully demented.
