The Clockwork Three

By: Matthew J. Kirby

This story is set in the late 1800's when many immigrants were arriving in the northeastern
United States.  Three characters, Hannah, Giuseppe, and Frederick have had difficult circumstances even though they are young.  As their paths cross, they realize that they can all help each other meet their goals.  Their adventures include, a clockwork automaton, finding a treasure, and outsmarting adults who seek to harm them.

Mrs. Senechal says:
Each of the character's stories will draw you in!  Then, I love how the author ties their stories together in unique ways.  There are some realistic descriptions of how difficult life was for orphans or children who had to work to support their families.  I like the friendship that develops and how the children learn to trust in the adults who care for them.
