Burly & Grum and The Secret City is a fantastic book from a sure-to-be successful author. Its colourful characters and mischievous humour are great for both kids and big kids alike.
The Secret City was my first Burly and Grum book and I instantly loved Grum and the other Groblins, as well as the devious villains. The brilliant illustrations also make me laugh - my favourite involves Burly, a dart and some ducks. I actually got so hooked on this book, I read it in one go on the train to Birmingham.
I quickly tracked down the others: Beyond The Forest (a great intro to the series) and The Birthday Surprise (still reading this at the mo). Great book, Kate - I hope there are more to come.
