Enter Jeffery Simian Esq., who started out as a simple silver coffeepot that sat upon a table aboard the Orient Express. Wished for by a clockwork princess, named Myra, he is a very humble sort.
Jeffery's almost constant companion is a djinn, named Idris, who will only grants amusing wishes. Together, they have various and compelling adventures amid a life of whim, suspense, and fantasy.
Written by Emily Thompson, who is the author of the twelve-part adventure series, titled Clockwork Twist , this spin-off of her novels is ostensibly penned by the refined, gentlemanly monkey himself.
Written in first person narrative, these are Jeffry's chronicles of all that he and his friend, Idris get up to and into, such as a visit to an amazing circus made of ice, and hidden deep within a Nordic fjord.
I was privileged to obtain an advance reading of this work, and I can heartily recommend Emily Thompson's first spin-off series, Jeffery Simian Esq. It is an absolute, escapist delight and not to be missed.
You can find "The intrepid exploits of a gentlemanly monkey abroad," which Emily is posting on a weekly basis, by clicking here.
