Archibald and the Blue Blood Conspiracy (book 1)
Winner of Bronze Award, Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards 2011
Lord Archibald knows the school year is off to a bad start when he is kidnapped and then dramatically rescued by a sword-wielding stranger. No complaints if you’re a princess—but not so great when you’re a scrawny son of a duke in 19th-century England. When other boys are also attacked, it becomes clear that someone is out for blue blood in Wyndsor, England’s School of Kings. Archie must put aside his bumbling ways, don his sleuth’s hat and figure out who’s behind the sinister attacks, and what they’re really after, before it’s too late!
“You can put Archibald right up there with Harry Potter and Artemis Fowl. There’s no sorcery here, but the writing is magic. SherMay Loh tells a gripping tale, packed with intrigue, wit and heart.”
—Colin Cheong, Singapore Literature Prize winner for Tangerine and The Man in the Cupboard
