Midnight at Moonstone by Lara Flecker (CO 1987-89)
“A twelve year-old girl named Kit is none too welcome when she runs away to her grandfather’s moribund costume museum and home – where her late mother was brought up. But can she save the building from a greedy, lying, cheating property developer – the splendidly named Mr Finn Scudder?”
Midnight at Moonstone is the new book by Lara Flecker (CO 1987-89). Having started off as a costume maker for theatre and films and then spending fifteen years as a senior costume display specialist at the V&A, Lara’s first children’s book is naturally set in a costume museum, a magical one where the costumes come to life at night.
She recently visited the White Horse bookshop in Marlborough and was interviewed by Marlborough News Online. You can read the interview here.
