"The beauty of sky, music, and the belief in 'extraordinary things' triumph in this whimsical and magical tale" ("Publishers Weekly") about a girl in search of her past who discovers a secret rooftop world in Paris.
Everyone thinks that Sophie is an orphan. True, there were no other recorded female survivors from the shipwreck that left baby Sophie floating in the English Channel in a cello case, but Sophie remembers seeing her mother wave for help. Her guardian tells her it is almost impossible that her mother is still alive--but "almost impossible" means "still possible." And you should never ignore a possible.
So when the Welfare Agency writes to her guardian, threatening to send Sophie to an orphanage, they takes matters into their own hands and flee to Paris to look for Sophie's mother, starting with the only clue they have--the address of the cello maker.
Evading the French authorities, she meets Matteo and his network of rooftoppers--urchins who live in the hidden spaces above the city. Together they scour the city in a search for Sophie's mother--but can they find her before Sophie is caught and sent back to London? Or, more importantly, before she loses hope?
Phillip Pullman, author of the His Dark Materials series, calls "Rooftoppers ""the work of a writer with an utterly distinctive voice and a wild imagination."

"Katherine Rundell's "Rooftoppers "is a confection of lyrical prose. Bold imaginative leaps carry the reader from one Parisian rooftop to the next in this unique and beautifully written tale of a girl in search of the mother whom everyone else believes is dead."--Maryrose Wood, author of The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place series
""Rooftoppers "drew me in immediately and carried me along straight to the end with its original voice and lively story."--Sharon Creech, Newbery-award winning author of Walk Two Moons
"Here comes a classic... Fantastic joyous storytelling. I was entranced. This is the only book I have ever read that made me long to cook sausages on a roof. From the first page onwards I knew I was reading something that sparkled (and it just got brighter and brighter). I'm a bit jealous actually; I wish I'd written it. Gorgeous, witty, kind, amazing, vertigo inducing, breathtaking, utterly charming, loved, loved, loved this little gem of a book. Hold your breath- this book is magic."--Hilary McKay, Whitbread Children's Book award-winning author of the Casson Family series
Katherine Rundell s "Rooftoppers, " like her previous novel "Cartwheeling in Thunderstorms", is the work of a writer with an utterly distinctive voice and a wild imagination. I admire her novels very much, and I hope they find the success they deserve. I m certainly looking forward to her next."--Philip Pullman, author of the His Dark Materials series"


Katherine Rundell will be one of the World Book Day authors for 2021. Skysteppers is a standalone story, set a handful of years before Rooftoppers, and explores the adventures of the second principal character, Matteo
