Summary
The skies of Oxford are aflame with meteors the night Edgar Jones comes into the world; clearly this is no ordinary boy. While his mother is apprehensive about her restless, inquisitive child, Edgar's father believes, without a doubt, that his son is destined for greatness. To his fathers dismay, Edgar turns his back on the scholarly life and apprentices himself to a blacksmith, but it is not long before his ingenuity and metalworking skill brings him to the attention of a maverick professor at Oxford University, a bone collector with plans for a museum of natural history. Finally Edgar has the opportunity to showcase his singular gifts, but at what cost to himself and his family--B.I.P
Summary
An extraordinary boy, both restless and inquisitive, turns his back on the scholarly life intended for him by his father, and finds his true calling in metalworking after apprenticing himself to a blacksmith
