The lilt of haunting music carried on the breeze; a soft, velvety laugh; a magical toy carousel turning in the night – The Velvet Fox is the spine-tingling sequel to Catherine Fisher’s brilliant story, The Clockwork Crow.
Seren and Tomos have become firm friends in Plas-y-Fran since their first dangerous encounter with the magical Tylwyth Teg fairies. As they play conkers on a fresh Autumn day, Tomos makes the grave mistake of boasting about how they defeated those mystical creatures. Suddenly, a breath of wind stirs up the crackling leaves and a mysterious carriage appears. Mrs Honeybourne has arrived to act as the children’s governess. Who is she? Where has she come from? Is she everything she seems to be? The gift of a mysterious toy carousel brings a kind of magic into the house that Seren thought was gone forever.
Seren soon finds herself treated unjustly – second best because she’s an orphan. When Tomos turns on her, she knows she needs help. It’s time to call for her old friend, the Clockwork Crow. He understands the old magic and might be able to help her defeat the enchantment encircling the house before it’s too late.
The Velvet Fox is a wonderful story of bravery and standing up for yourself. Readers will see that your background does not determine whether you are important or not but instead, who you are inside and how you choose to behave. There’s a power in friendship and strength in honesty.

Wonderful autumn adventureReviewed in the United Kingdom on 8 October 2020
Carousels will never be the same again!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 27 June 2020
Another fantastic instalment of the clockwork crow series. The Fair people aren’t ready to give up on taking Tomos and set another dastardly plan in place to take a human child. Just the right amount of scary mixed with friendship, family and love.
Great read!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 1 November 2019
After reading The Clockwork Crow, first in the series, to my class of 10 year olds last year, they are now giving up their break times to come and hear me read this one too! Fantastic!

Beware of the tricksterReviewed in the United Kingdom on 27 January 2020
This is a wonderful sequel to The Clockwork Crow. I loved the carousel gift for Tomas with its pretty dancer. Juggler and drummer boy, so scary when they turn out to be so much more.
Great sequel!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 December 2019
