Coming in 2022… A spellbinding standalone story from the best-selling author of the Cogheart Adventures.
Magicborn was inspired by the true tale of Peter the Wild Boy, a feral child brought to London to meet King George I and raised at Kensington Palace. The tale is told through the eyes of another of the palace’s imprisoned curiosities. A young girl, whose story is quite as startling and strange as Peter’s.
Bunzl was introduced to Peter’s story at a school event at Kensington Palace. The real-life Peter the Wild Boy was found naked and unable to speak in a German forest in 1725; he was brought to London and became a sensational public curiosity, written about by the likes of Jonathan Swift and Daniel Defoe.
