Sinopsis:

If ever a chill entered her soul, or the hope suddenly drained from her heart, she knew a bogle was to blame.

Birdie McAdam, a ten-year-old orphan, is tougher than she looks. She's proud of her job as apprentice to Alfred the Bogler, a man who catches monsters for a living. Birdie lures the bogles out of their lairs with her sweet songs, and Alfred kills them before they kill her. On the mean streets of Victorian England, hunting bogles is actually less dangerous work than mudlarking for scraps along the vile river Thames. (See glossary!) Or so it seems—until the orphans of London start to disappear . . .

From the Inside Flap:

Catching bogles it s nice work if you can get it!

In the mean streets of Victorian London, orphans must do the most dangerous and unsavory jobs just to survive. Which is why young Birdie considers herself lucky to be apprenticed to Alfred the Bogler, a man who traps and kills monsters for a living. It s a far better life than mudlarking for flotsam in the stinking Thames or toshing things from the even stinkier sewers.

Sure, Birdie s job is dangerous, since she is the bait for monsters who d love a tasty child for dinner. But she s fast and light on her feet, and she can sing like the bird she s named for, so no bogle is ever going to catch her.

Or so Birdie thinks until the orphans of London start to disappear. Soon Birdie and Alfred are caught up in the search for missing children. Aided by the enthusiastic Miss Eames, who is certain there must be a more scientific way to catch bogles, Birdie and Alfred discover that the scariest creatures hunting lost children might not be bogles at all . . .

And so begins a spooky and spectacular new trilogy from award-winning author Catherine Jinks."
