‘Louisa Albani’s deeply evocative exploration of the life and work of Mary Shelley continues with this beautiful edition of the children’s story Maurice. Haunting visual storytelling and an edited text combine to bring Shelley’s long-forgotten work to life for today’s children – and to seduce adult readers too.’ – Fiona Sampson, author of In Search of Mary Shelley: the girl who wrote Frankenstein.

This pamphlet is inspired by the discovery of a lost Mary Shelley manuscript in Italy, hidden for over 100 years and telling the tale of an abducted boy finding refuge in a fisherman's cot on the Devonshire coast.
