Tim Burton fans will especially love this bittersweet novel about a boy named jack born in late 19th century in Edinburgh on the coldest day on earth which life depends on a clock installed in his chest.
The story is a balance between romantic and frightening imagery because Jack must be careful so that anger or love won’t break his fragile heart.
What will Little Jack go through when he’s nearly falling in love with miss Acacia?
You will need to find out by yourself. And I think you will be even more attracted to The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart story if you read it in French.
