Claire Cheeseman, Laingholm Primary. I have to admit to being a long term fan of Catherine Jinks.

Her writing is engrossing, her topics always interesting and her descriptions of the historical eras spot on. This is the first in a new series based in the London of the Industrial Revolution era. Using the very strong mythology of the area Jinks has created a very believable world. The historical detail here, particularly with regard to the living conditions, social strata etc would certainly give students are better impressions of just how difficult life was for those of the lower classes and the differenced between rich and poor.
It is their job to lure out bogles from whence they hide usually dark and isolated and destroy them. And the way to do this? Be tempting them with a juicy child singing like an angel. Birdie encounters two strong women who are to have a momentous effect on her life.

Sarah Pickles a local gang leader who wants to lure Birdie into her employ and upper class Edith Eames who is studying what she thinks are the mythical monsters of England, that is until she meets Alfred and Birdie, and learns first hand just how real they are. I am always impressed just how well Jinks creates a great romp with historical detail. This is a new author to me, writing a YA book about the monsters — bogles — that live in Victorian London in the dark underbelly of the city: the sewers, the chimney, the dumb waiter, the deep cupboard, the Workhouse, the well, the mines The evil, deeply foul bogle eats live children — which creates even more nightmares for everyone.
It appears there is a very brisk if incredibly dangerous living to be had, killing bogles. Along the way they also collect Miss Eames, a gentlewoman who is fascinated with all the legends of the bogles and other monsters, and wants to see if they really do exist, and how you can go about killing one.
Then there is the very dodgy Sarah Pickles, a Fagin-ish Dickensian character leading a ragged band of pickpockets, who asks them investigate the disappearance of three of her boys In doing so, Birdie and Alfred walk straight into terrible danger! So there are the evil bogles — but there are also evil people wanting to do equally evil things to humans.
The richness of the history in A Very Unusual Pursuit is wonderful, all woven into the fabric of the very readable, gasp-inducing, and quick-paced story. Malvina Yock. This book was a delight to read. It is suited to any age from around 9 through to Australian fiction has long since come of age, but I am continually encouraged by the quality and offerings of our writers, in particular those who write for young adults.
Her love of history and affinity with the imagination of children enhances every word. A Very Unusual Pursuit takes a fantasy London of the past as the setting for a Dickensian tale of ghosties and ghoulies and things that go bump in the night. The tale features the heroine Birdie, a feisty scrap of a slum orphan, fighting the forces of evil; both against the supernatural and by combating villainous humans. Birdie is apprenticed to a grizzled old character Alfred Bunce, a bogler.
To better understand the term, think bogeyman.
