Fingers and the Pocket Watch

ByMaxwell Grantly

Meet Edward Croydon (known by his friends as “Fingers” due to his pick pocketing skills.) As an infant, Fingers was abandoned by his parents in the town cemetery one winter’s day. He was left alone, to fend for himself on the streets of New Babbage. Rescued by a strange guardian angel and taken to the sanctuary of an attic, he soon settled down to an impoverished life on the streets, shining shoes for rich gentlemen during the day and picking their pockets whenever he could. Fate bought him into contact with one strange man, wearing a beautiful pocket watch. When Fingers deceitfully gained possession of the watch, his life was to change in the most unexpected way. The theft of the watch bought him all sorts of new and confusing dilemmas and led him through the streets of New Babbage, in a futile attempt to make sense of his tragic past. This new steampunk story by Maxwell Grantly has been composed in a lively comic format and has many beautiful illustrations that will enchant and captivate you.
