The Hatmakers by Tamzin Merchant

Lose yourself in the world of the makers where gifted individuals create the most amazing pieces of clothing that influence the character and actions of their wearers. From gloves to shoes to hats, incredible items are crafted from magical ingredients and brilliant powers. A long-standing rivalry between the different maker families means there is little time for distraction. Everyone must be at the top of their game.

When Cordelia’s father is lost at sea, it seems she is the only one who has time to try to find him. Convinced that what is lost can be found, she comes up with a plan to search for him and prove that he did not go down with his ship. Cordelia digs deep within herself to prove that ‘if you’re good enough, you’re old enough’ and that the cleverness she inherited from her mother means she is ready to take her place alongside her family in the workshop at Hatmaker House.

Bursting with magic and plenty of mayhem, this is a wonderful story for readers looking to escape the everyday and find a new world of adventure. The details of the magical hats are completely captivating and I couldn’t help but imagine what I would create if only I could venture inside the alchemy room for a few moments.
