Check out the runner up prize for #cogheart that I got from the Leeds Book Awards. It looks like a massive TRILLION CARAT Diamond -- I am sure the Jack of Diamonds from #Moonlocket would be well up for stealing it! ♦️ #booktour #bookawards #cogheartadventures

βš™οΈπŸš²4🌟's🦊🌚Wind up your clockwork, grab your bicycle & board that airship!
I was so happy to see the world of Cogheart return to the shelves of my store, & with such a GORGEOUS cover too πŸ’œ. I really liked how this sequel focused more on Robert, but still had him side-by-side with Lily throughout, for a familiar, the gang's all back together, feeling ☺️.
It's fabulous, because it manages to be so tender & insightful on such fragile subjects such as family, friendships & prejudice, whilst being crammed full of adventure & heart-pounding exploits. No mean feat! πŸ™ŒπŸ» for Peter Bunzl.
Once again a sensational, steampunk-ish world is effortlessly brought to life in our imaginations by Peter's writing, with a villainous cast just as chilling as those in its predecessor.
Honestly, some of the scenes are downright heart-pounding & scary!

Also, there are some great additions to the cast of characters that I'd love to see come back, in hopefully 🀞🏻, more books, & some familiar faces I was so happy to see too.

But be prepared if you're an older reader to be a little bit frustrated by the lack of initial puzzle solving - that bit's for the 9-12 yr olds remember!

HOWEVER, that aside, this gem of a book doesn't fail to please. πŸ’Ž #bookstagram #bookreview #bookseller #usbornebooks #peterbunzl #cogheart #moonlocket #childrensbooks

MOONLOCKET & hot chocolate. This book might be *even* better than COGHEART, and that's saying something! Beautiful prose, imaginative adventure & characters I want to hug tight! I love this world so much! ❀

Cogheart by Peter Bunzl is a pacy, action packed Middle grade with a difference. And this is what appealed to me the most. It’s set in Steam Punk, Victorian England with mechanimals, air-pirates, penny dreadfuls, villains, crime, mystery, adventure and friendships. I did thoroughly enjoy reading this, as it was an impressive debut, and I will read his next book, Moonlocket when it’s released, but from over a third way in, it was a tiny bit predictable. It was easy to see where the twists were going to be and unfortunately I worked a few parts out, well in advance. Lily and Robert make an awesome and engaging pairing and the silver-mirror eyed baddies are so imaginative and extremely well characterised. They were my favourites along with the mechanicals! Peter Bunzl is fantastic at creating a world that you will lose yourself in and yet heavy themes such as grief and loss are still very well explored. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️from me! Well worth a read! #steampunk #cogheart #peterbunzl #middlegrade #MG #books #booksbooksbooks #readreadread #reading #booksofinstagram #instabooks #bookstagram #bookreview #bookblog #booknerd #blog #bibliophile #bookgeek #bookoftheday #bookshelf
