I’m really excited to be able to reveal for you today, the cover of Catherine Bruton’s new novel, ‘Another Twist in the Tale,’ which will be published on the 5th May 2020.
So without further ado here it is…
This gorgeous cover was illustrated by Thy Bui and designed by the inhouse team at Nosy Crow. For me this intriguing artwork hints at the exciting mystery that lies beneath the cover. Let’s find out what Catherine has instore for us in, ‘Another Twist in the Tale.’
Another Twist in the Tale – Catherine Bruton
You have heard, no doubt, the tale of Master Oliver Twist – that rags-to-riches boy; the parish orphan who became heir to the Brownlow fortune. But what few know is that there was a second Twist – a girl, brought into this world moments ahead of her brother. This is the story of Twill Twist, and her journey through the gambling dens and workhouses of London, as she attempts to make a life for herself, rescue her friends, and uncover the mystery of her past – while meeting some familiar faces along the away…
Catherine studied English at Oxford University and has been juggling life as a teacher, children’s author and mum for the past fifteen years. As an English teacher at King Edward’s School, Bath, she sees first hand the impact stories can have on young readers – opening their eyes, expanding their horizons, making them ask questions and see the world differently. Her books tackle some of the big issues faced by young people today – terrorism, immigration, the cult of celebrity, the refugee crisis – in ways that are heart-breaking, often hilarious, but invariably hopeful. Her multi-award nominated debut We Can Be Heroes was recently made into a film starring Alison Steadman and Phil Davies and, as an ‘extra’ on the film set, Catherine got to realise her a lifelong dream when she actually got to spend a day living in one of her own stories! As her alter-ego Cate Shearwater, she is also the author of the much loved Somersaults and Dreams series.
