A mum's review!
on 9 September 2002
This is not so much a review on the book itself but more about its effect. This book was bought by chance for my thirteen year old son. He is a very reluctant reader and finds reading and English very difficult. He has sadly only read one book in the past year. This is despite being given lots of encouragement by us all. However, this book was read by him inside a week, at every available opportunity he picked it up. He has told us all what a great book it is, how interesting he found it and how the words were put together in such a way that he could really imagine being around during that time. He has now asked me to get him another two books from the same series, because he wants to read some more. Now what book could have a better recommendation than that? Thank you to the author and the publishers.
