SIRENS (Tik and Tok Adventures #5)
written and illustrated by Peter Suart
In their fifth adventure Tik and Tok are drawn by a beautiful song into a dreadful city of rusting machines, filthy smoke and rats, where the children do nothing but stare at screens all day. Chased by Pinchbrat, Tik takes refuge in the underground drains and sets off to find out who runs the place and What It All Means. Tok has his own troubles, falling foul of Sir William Warp. Will our heroes survive the deadly call of the song? Will the children's enchantment be broken? Will the questions never stop?Sirens expands the folk tale The Pied Piper of Hamelin and concerns power and the manipulation of children, through computers, surveillance, branding and consumerism. It draws on several famous works of literature and is at once an adventure story for children and a satire for adults.
WHO SHOULD READ THIS BOOK? For children aged 8 and above. For adults who love illustrated and fantasy literature.
