About the book

One diamond a world of spies, death and deception. In Venice, the diamond promises wealth and prestige to greedy Bernardo Pagliarin. At the court of the Great Moghul in Agra, it holds the key to the throne itself. For Filippo and his family, the stone is worth far more. It could bring their father back from the dead. From the bustling markets of seventeenth-century Venice to the majestic palaces of Hindustan, acclaimed author Jamila Gavin takes the reader on an unforgettable quest across desert, sea and mountains.

About the Author

Jamila Gavin

Jamila Gavin is a British writer born in Mussoorie in the United Province of India, in the present-day state of Uttarakhand in the Western Himalayas. She is known mainly for children's books, including several with Indian origins.

The Surya trilogy – The Wheel of Surya, The Eye of the Horse and The Track of the Wind – is a family saga following two generations of Indian Sikhs and showing the impact of the British Empire and the Partition of India on their lives. All three books made the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize shortlist; The Wheel of Surya was special runner-up.

Coram Boy won the 2000 Whitbread Prize as Children's Book of the Year. It is set in the 18th century, based on the Foundling Hospital established in London by sea Captain Thomas Coram. According to a local newspaper, the story "has links to Gloucestershire."

Coram Boy has been adapted for the stage by Helen Edmundson and produced by the Royal National Theatre in 2005-2006, garnering Edmundson an Olivier Award, as well on Broadway in 2007.

    I love the idea that each book is numbered and limited, they're extra special because they're personalised with those sought-after signatures, and they are not on tip-in pages.
