Meet Mog, a printer's devil, or apprentice.  When he delivers a bill to one of the clients, he overhears some rather intriguing conversation.  The men are talking about a camel coming in on a ship from the East Indies.  What could that possibly mean?  Mog decides to head down to the docks and poke around to see if he can find out anything.  That's when he is mistaken for another boy -- the bosun's son.  Things get more and more interesting and Mog finds himself deeply involved in a dangerous mystery.  As he roams the streets of Victorian London, he finds himself in more and more danger.  He is now involved with a brass camel, a kindly dwarf, a mysterious stranger, and the abused son of the ship's bosun.
