BeschreibungStunningly original, fabulously inventive and packed with humour and wit, FLY BY NIGHT is a unique and extraordinary debut novel. When words take flight, heroes are born... A breath-taking adventure story, set in reimagined eighteenth century England. A time of fracture and division - as the realm struggles to maintain an uneasy peace after years of cival war and tyranny, a twelve-year-old orphan and her loyal companion, a grumpy goose, are about to become the unlikely heroes of a radical revolution.
PortraitFrances Hardinge spent her childhood in a huge old house that inspired her to write strange stories from an early age. She read English at Oxford University, then got a job at a software company. However, by this time, a persistent friend had finally managed to bully Frances into sending a few chapters of FLY BY NIGHT, her first children's novel, to a publisher. Macmillan made her an immediate offer. The book went on to publish to huge critical acclaim and win the Branford Boase First Novel Award.
