Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Puffin.

The first adventure in a spellbinding new magical world.

Cordelia comes from a long line of magical milliners, who weave alchemy and enchantment into every hat. In Cordelia's world, Making - crafting items such as hats, cloaks, watches, boots and gloves from magical ingredients - is a rare and ancient skill, and only a few special Maker families remain.

When Cordelia's father Prospero and his ship, the Jolly Bonnet, are lost at sea during a mission to collect hat ingredients, Cordelia is determined to find him. But Uncle Tiberius and Aunt Ariadne have no time to help the littlest Hatmaker, for an ancient rivalry between the Maker families is threatening to surface. Worse, someone seems to be using Maker magic to start a war.

It's up to Cordelia to find out who and why....

honestly loved it

Although the target audience is middle grade kids, I couldn't put it down. The characters were brightly imagined, the story was compelling, and the narration was dynamic. What more could you ask for?

Outstanding novel

A middle-grade book that ticks all the correct boxes aimed at that very important reading age-group. Tamzin has woven a magic tale with an amazing storyline that had me laughing out loud at times and at other times nearly shaking in my boots. Very cleverly, Tamzin has balanced any fearful moments with subtle hints of humour that reminds the reader that it is just a story, no matter how realistic it might seem - this is by far the most important characteristic of middle-grade books and Tamzin has done so perfectly. In choice of characters, there is someone in the story for every reader. The protagonists are loveable, believable and I climbed into their shoes from the very first page. The antagonists are nasty and cruel and they play their part beautifully. Thank you Tamzin for sending us on such an amazing adventure. Beautifully read by Tamzin too. What a wonderful experience.
