The grand residence of the famous alchemist, Mr Fountain, is a world away from the dark orphanage Rose has left behind. For the house is positively overflowing with sparkling magic - she can feel it. And it's not long before Rose realises that maybe, just maybe, she has a little bit of magic in her, too...

If you love Araminta Spook, Harry Potter and Lemony Snickett, you'll love the ROSE books!
