Summary

In this gripping, imaginative and hilarious adventure - comprised of an unforgettable crew of misfits - a boy and his mechanical friends discover the truth about his past. 

Orphan Christopher works for Mr Absalom, an engineer of mechanical children. He’s happy being the only ‘real’ boy among his scrap-metal buddies made from bits and bobs - until an accident reveals an awful truth. 

What follows is a remarkable adventure as the friends set out to discover who and what they are and even what it means to be human.
