“Hal Duncan’s stories enchant in every sense of the word. In language as magical as the street urchins that give the book its title, these tales conjure up a world in which myths and legends take on flesh, with all the attendant pleasures and dangers that implies. (And he throws in some pirates and fairies for good measure!) Tough, tender and deeply engaging Scruffians! dazzles and delights from beginning to end.” - Peter Dube, author of Subtle Bodies
