Sweep: The Story of a Girl and Her Monster / Jonathan Auxier

Nan Sparrow is an orphan in nineteenth century London. She knows chimneys, she knows climbing, and she thinks she knows the nature of soot and grime. What she doesn’t know is why the chimney sweep who raised her left her on her own, or why the lump of char the sweep gave to her has stayed warm all this time (or, why it’s looking at her). For anyone ages 9 and up, who has ever wanted to have—or to be—a protector.
