The Mourning Emporium

By Michelle Lovric

Published Jan 2010

Venice is in peril. Bajamonte Tiepolo is back and his baddened magic has spread across the globe, from the island of Hooroo in the South Pacific all the way to London, where Queen Victoria is dying.

And now two cities need saving by Teo, the Undrowned Child, and Renzo, the Studious Son of a Venetian prophecy. Time is running out as they try to unravel the mysteries threatening London and Venice. They meet mermaids and mourning children, a giant squid, a talking bulldog and the delectable, deceptive Miss Uish. But who is their friend, and who their enemy?

This is the sequel to Michelle Lovric’s first novel for children, The Undrowned Child.
