Popular UK Steampunk Series Returns with US Release of ‘Moonlocket’


ST. PAUL, MN, March 5, 2019 – UK author Peter Bunzl’s award-winning steampunk middle grade fantasy series the Cogheart Adventures is back with Moonlocket, an all-new adventure for American readers, coming to bookstores August 13, 2019. Moonlocket, the second book in the series picks up where Cogheart left off, plunging Lily, Robert, and everyone’s favorite mechanical fox, Malkin, into another fascinatingly dark and steampunk-fueled mystery.

When infamous escapologist Jack Door breaks out from prison, he sets out for the town of Brackenbridge, determined to find his missing treasure—the Moonlocket. But when Lily and Robert unwittingly find themselves caught up in Jack Door’s search, they discover that Robert’s history holds the secret to the Moonlocket’s whereabouts.

The third book in the series, Sky Circus, releases February 11, 2020.

Peter Bunzl grew up in South London in a rambling Victorian house with three cats, two dogs, one sister, an antique-dealer dad and an artist mum. He is a BAFTA-winning animator, as well as a writer and film-maker. Like Lily and Robert, he loves adventures and reading penny dreadfuls, but wishes dearly that he had a mechanical fox called Malkin. Find him online at and on Twitter @peterbunzl.
