Orphan Seren Rhys is enjoying her first summer at Plas-y-Fran. But as autumn arrives, it brings with it a mysterious new governess who seems intent on drawing Tomos away from Seren and his family.
 
Dangerous figures from a bewitched toy carousel stalk the house and, fearing the worst, Seren calls on the clockwork crow to help her. But can he reach her in time, and will Tomos be able to escape the magical creatures threatening to ensnare him, led by the Velvet Fox?
 
Praise for The Velvet Fox:
 
'A writer whose strange magic is impossible to resist.' Daniel Hahn
 
'Catherine Fisher has woven her magic once more, twisting fairy tales, folklore and fantasy into a spellbinding tale.' Family Bookworms
 
'A magical thriller with a difference.' Amanda Craig
 
'Tension builds from almost the first page in this creepy and unsettling tale of faerie folk which is best read with the lights on. With echoes of the more disconcerting aspects of Alice in Wonderland and traditional folk tales, deception is all around and nothing it what it seems.' BookTrust
