    This reminds me of Grimms Fairytales because they are dark.  This is a dark story that takes place in Victorian London. During that time period you had the poor and the wealthy.  The wealthy did not associate with the poor unless they needed them to do work for them. The wealthy did not believe in Bogles, monsters who ate children.  These were tales the poor people told their children to keep them obedient.  If you were not lucky enough to have parents then you often found yourself working in a workhouse.  Lots of long hours, hard work and very little food.  A lot of kids starved to death.  Birdie McAdam is an orphan.  She is a lucky one though.  She is the apprentice to Alfred Bunce a Bogle killer.  Birdie’s job is simple she needs to sing.  Singing lures the Bogles out so that Bunce can kill them.  She considers the risk well worth it compared to working in a workhouse.  However, there seems to be more children disappearing.  After all, children are a Bogle’s favorite dish.  Tag along with Birdie and Bunce on this first adventure into the world of the Bogles.  The second book in the trilogy, A Plague of Bogles, will be out in the fall of 2014.  Afraid you might not understand the language from the Victorian era?  There is a handy glossary in the back.  This is a book you definitely need to check out.
