An enchanting, magical novel set in a mysterious toyshop - perfect for fans of Erin Morgenstern's The Night Circus and Stephanie Garber's Caraval by way of Jessie Burton's The Miniaturist It is 1917, and while war wages across Europe, in the heart of London, there is a place of hope and enchantment.

But Cathy is about to discover that the Emporium has secrets of its own...

The toymakers of India are representative of the vast numbers of oururban poor. Yet they embody great qualities of resilience, resourcefulnessand creativity. In independent India, the toymaker has asserted himselfas part of the urban self-employed and not as part of the invisible ruralmasses who battle disguised unemployment.Such a self-directed existence is often admired by the poor and deprived.By the way he has chosen to live, the toymaker shows others aroundhim how they, too, can live if they dare.Driven by the conviction that the individual matters, whether she or heis poor or rich, Scharada Dubey has written a rivetting account of acommunity, transcending caste, place, gender, and time. It is the storyof how micro and macro economies are intertwined and shows that ajust and humane society is possible only through individual commitment.

The Emporium opens with the first frost of winter. It is the same every year. Across the city, when children wake to see ferns of white stretched across their windows, or walk to school to hear ice crackling underfoot, the whispers begin: the Emporium is open! Christmas is coming, and the goose is getting fat ... It is 1917, and London has spent years in the shadow of the First World War. In the heart of Mayfair, though, there is a place of hope. A place where children's dreams can come true, where the impossible becomes possible - that place is Papa Jack's Toy Emporium. For years Papa Jack has created and sold his famous magical toys: hobby horses, patchwork dogs and bears that seem alive, toy boxes bigger on the inside than out, 'instant trees' that sprout from boxes, tin soldiers that can fight battles on their own. Now his sons, Kaspar and Emil, are just old enough to join the family trade. Into this family comes a young Cathy Wray - homeless and vulnerable. The Emporium takes her in, makes her one of its own. But Cathy is about to discover that while all toy shops are places of wonder, only one is truly magical ...

March of the Toymakers follows the journey of Santa's chief elf, Nissa, on his quest to save Christmas. Santa barely has enough elves to make enough toys for all the children of the world, so he sends Nissa on a mission to find the Fair Feather Maid, who will help them recruit an army of elves to become toymakers. However, there are many challenges along the way, from solving riddles and breaking pixie spells to fighting off ogres, trolls, and goblins, all of whom wish to prevent the army of toymakers from making it back to Santa's Village in time. If they do not make it back by Midsummer's Eve, they will not have enough time to make all the toys that bring Christmas joys.

Excerpt from The Toymakers It was the day before Christmas - the year was long ago, so which particular one it was does not matter. Dr. Bunch had been to Dun moor to buy some needed medicines, and some gifts, to be credited to the generosity of Santa Claus, for the little Bunches, of whom there were six - the eldest twelve. The main road in Middleton ran almost paral lel with the river, and Dr. Bunch scanned the frozen Quick, expecting every moment to see his son and namesake, Benjamin, glide by upon his skates. His eye-quest was futile, and he turned his attention to his old horse Peter, who he longed to the stop-ever breed. He did not wait until he reached the foot of a hill - the sight of one in the distance was sufficient to give him a partial paralysis. The Middleton boys said that the Doctor pushed with the reins, and that if the Doctor's gig had been put before old Peter, so many patients would not have died before he got there. But this was only village raillery. Hallo! Cried the Doctor, as an old, doubled up specimen of humanity came in sight in a. Cross-road. How's your rheumatiz?
