Review The Hatmakers by Tamzin Merchant

Friday, February 19, 2021

Cordelia comes from a long line of magical milliners, who weave alchemy and enchantment into every hat. In Cordelia's world, Making - crafting items such as hats, cloaks, watches, boots and gloves from magical ingredients - is a rare and ancient skill, and only a few special Maker families remain.

When Cordelia's father Prospero and his ship, the Jolly Bonnet, are lost at sea during a mission to collect hat ingredients, Cordelia is determined to find him. But Uncle Tiberius and Aunt Ariadne have no time to help the littlest Hatmaker, for an ancient rivalry between the Maker families is threatening to surface. Worse, someone seems to be using Maker magic to start a war.

It's up to Cordelia to find out who, and why . . .


 "It was a wild and lightning-struck night. The kind of night that changes everything"

This was a great read, if you like middle grade books and you are looking for a great adventure this one was so good.This is set in an alternate historical England.  It took me a little while to learn who was who and learn about the subjects but it was such a great read. I find it brilliant and fast paced. 

I loved the idea of this maker magic system and find it very interesting, the characters were lovable and the writing unique!I had so much fun reading this book.
