More About The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart by Mathias Malzieu; Sarah Ardizzone
 
 
 
Overview
A wildly original, fantastical adventure and now an animated move, Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart this international bestseller will charm readers of all ages.
Edinburgh, 1874. Born with a frozen heart, Jack is near death when his mother abandons him to the care of Dr. Madeleine witch doctor, midwife, protector of orphans who saves Jack by placing a cuckoo clock in his chest. And it is in her orphanage that Jack grows up among tear-filled flasks, eggs containing memories, and a man with a musical spine.
As Jack gets older, Dr. Madeleine warns him that his heart is too fragile for strong emotions: he must never, ever fall in love. And, of course, this is exactly what he does: on his tenth birthday and with head-over-heels abandon. The object of his ardor is Miss Acacia a bespectacled young street performer with a soul-stirring voice. But now Jack s life is doubly at risk his heart is in danger and so is his safety after he injures the school bully in a fight for the affections of the beautiful singer.
Now begins a journey of escape and pursuit, from Edinburgh to Paris to Miss Acacia s home in Andalusia. Mathias Malzieu s The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart is a fantastical, wildly inventive tale of love and heartbreak by turns poignant and funny in which Jack finally learns the great joys, and ultimately the greater costs, of owning a fully formed heart."
