This is a must read. What would Robin Hood or Aladdin be at a much later date and in the London. If you are looking for a Terry Pratchett novel that is a historical fantasy but does not lack his storytelling ability. If you want to be swept up in the world of old England’s sewers, well, there is no better way. Our pal Dodger is a streetwise youth that uses his brains and caring nature to help those around him. Especially little Ms. Simplicity as she brings no end of trouble to him. I highly recommend this one.
