This short but wonderfully stimulating book is a must-get for any child who enjoyed reading "Charlie & the Chocolate Factory" and books of that ilk. Although I am way past the age of half-price admittance to the matinee, I thoroughly enjoyed the few hours it took me to read it, and the ending left me anxiously awaiting a sequel.

The young heroine Millicent finds herself apprenticed to the gruff and mysterious caretaker of a great mansion belonging to a deceased toymaker, and before she knows it, she's in a desperate race to uncover the secret of the mansion before the toymaker's greedy brother can get his grasping hands on the toymaker's legacy.

From the title you can see it involves a pipe organ and a glass eye - what other encouragement does one need to pick this one up today?

Charmingly inventive and extremely entertaining, this is highly recommended for all fans of Roald Dahl, and fantastic adventures in general.

Sounds like I might have to sit in the kids section armchair and read it cover to cover!
