Oh, the Sly King, the Sly King, in his towers of ash and wind.

Pikey Thomas doesn''t know how or why he can see the changeling girl. But there she is. Not in the cold, muddy London neighborhood where Pikey lives. Instead, she''s walking through the trees and snow of the enchanted Old Country or, later, racing through an opulent hall. She''s pale and small, and she has branches growing out of her head. Her name is Henrietta Kettle.

Pikey''s vision, it turns out, is worth something. Worth something to Hettie''s brother-a brave adventurer named Bartholomew Kettle. Worth something to the nobleman who protects him. And Pikey is not above bartering-Pikey will do almost anything to escape his past; he''ll do almost anything for a life worth living.

The faeries-save for a mysterious sylph and a mischievous cobble faery or two- have been chased out of London. They''ve all gone north. The army is heading north, too. So Pikey and Bartholomew follow, collecting information, piecing together clues, searching for the doorway that will lead them to Hettie.

The Whatnot is the enthralling, surprising, and unforgettable companion to Stefan Bachmann''s internationally bestselling debut novel The Peculiar.
