Product Description

Amazon Review

Black Queen is a superbly spooky offering from the award-winning Michael Morpurgo, written to capture the imagination and chill the bones of children who are just beginning to gain confidence in their reading.

When Billy's shadowy next door neighbour asks him to take care of her cat while she is away, Billy cannot resist the opportunity to nose around her house. But of course, he gets more than he bargained for...

A suspenseful and decidedly spooky story to entice young readers, Black Queen is a cleverly structured novel that will have children jumping with surprise. Ideal for capturing the imagination of even the most reluctant reader, this stunning--deceptively simple--little book is sure to captivate and intrigue. (Ages 7 and over) --Susan Harrison

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling 9 Aug 2002
Format:Audio Cassette
The Black Queen is an utterly compelling story, brilliantly read in a dramatic and humorous way. All three of my children were transfixed for over an hour in the car (ages 5, 7 and 11) by the tale and have asked to hear it again and again. Great fun for adults too. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cleverly written and slightly scary! 31 Dec 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
My seven year old loved this book, partly because he is into chess but also because the author manages to build up the suspense around the role of the mysterious Black Queen and her cat. It is written in a way which appeals to adults as well as children - so it's a good one for bedtime stories as long as your child isn't too nervous!
