#1 bestselling author
The Sunday Times Children's Books of the Year

A timeless story celebrating friendship and imagination, from an exciting new voice in children's literature.

Mabel lives with her parents in The Mermaid Hotel, by the sea. Mabel likes to keep an eye on the comings and goings of all the guests. Then one day a particularly in-ter-est-ing old lady comes to stay. There is something very suspicious about her, with her growly voice and her heavy trunks and her beady-eyed tortoise. And why does no one know her REAL name? There can only be one answer, Mabel decides ... this guest is a SUPERVILLAIN. But even supervillains have a soft side, and as an unlikely friendship grows between the pair, their fantastical exploits take them well beyond the corridors of their seaside home.

'The book is a thing of wonder'
David Walliams

'Madame Badobedah manages to feel both fresh and classic at the same time.'
Anna James

'This book is one of those books you dreamt of reading as a child. That you wished you could write as an adult. One that you’re so glad exists so your own child can read. It’s a proper children’s book.'
Laura Dockrill, author of What Have I Done?

' ... it’s swashbuckling and mysterious whilst still being very easy to follow.'
Dolly Alderton, bestselling author of Ghosts

' ... this quirky, imaginative story is a delight … Vividly illustrated, this is a witty and gently moving debut.'
The Daily Mail
