'Billy and The Man Engine' is the brand new book from Will Coleman, the man behind the ‘largest mechanical puppet ever constructed in Britain’ which steamed the length of the Cornish Mining World landscape in 2016.

Will’s previous book ‘The Man Engine Remembers’ is a beautiful picture book much-loved by a whole generation of 5 to 7-year olds. Now comes something much deeper and darker; a gritty adventure story for 8 to 12-year olds.

The story is written.  The illustrations are complete (drawn by Will Coleman’s son Merran). Now we just need to pay for the design and printing.
