Punch by [Henderson, Barbara]

I’m delighted to be kicking off the blogtour for Barbara Henderson’s latest children’s novel, Punch, which will be published on 23rd October. Punch is aimed at 8-12 year olds but can, of course, be enjoyed by other age-groups too. I read her excellent debut novel Fir For Luck last year and you can read my review of that here.

First of all, what’s this book about?

Wrong place. Wrong time. A boy on the run.


Smoke belches out through the market entrance.

And me?

I turn and run.

Inverness 1889.

When 12-year-old Phin is accused of a terrible crime, his only option is to flee. In the unlikely company of an escaped prisoner and a group of travelling entertainers, he enters a new world of Punch and Judy shows and dancing bears.

But will Phin clear his name?
