“The talent thief: an extraordinary tale of an ordinary boy” Alex Williams & illustrated by David Roberts
“Wealthy orphans Adam and Cressida Bloom couldn't be less alike. Adam ca n't seem to help being exceedingly ordinary whereas Cressida, his glamorous sister, has a magnificent talent – when she sings, even the birds stop to listen. Then Cressida is invited to perform at Fortescue's festival of young talents and Adam tags along. But once the children arrive at the festival, their terrific talents begin to mysteriously disappear.”
