Caspar and the Master of the Forgotten

Only one person knows the dark secret
Caspar’s parents are brilliant puppeteers. But there’s a price to be paid for their success. For generations, his family has had to sacrifice its youngest child to the Master of the Forgotten. Then one day, Till, Caspar’s brother, also disappears from the adults’ memory. Only Caspar and his sister can save him from the Master’s cold-hearted ambition: to use all of the vanished and forgotten children to bring to life the perfect puppet.
Caspar and the Master of the Forgotten by Stefanie Taschinski is a timeless, atmospheric narrative combining elements of children’s daily life and fantasy.

The author’s Sparklewood was on the bestseller list of "Dein Spiegel" children’s magazine for weeks and sold more than 50,000 copies! Translation rights sold to Romania!

Basil is the only reason I drag myself to boarding school every day. But it’s getting darker and darker, and there’s something behind me.
