This review is from: Midnight for Charlie Bone (Children of the Red King - book 1) (Paperback)
I read Midnight for Charlie Bone with my nine year old son and we both loved it! My son absolutely didn't want to put this book down, which hasn't happened since the Harry Potter series.
Charlie is a typical 10 year old boy who is happy attending school and spending time with his best friend Benjamin and his dog Runner Bean, until he suddenly begins to hear voices coming from photographs. The moment his evil and powerful Yewbeam relatives realize Charlie is one of the "endowed" they send him off to Bloors Academy, an unwelcoming, gloomy school for the specially gifted. Along the way Charlie stumbles onto a mystery involving a stolen baby and a very mysterious case entrusted to his care that everyone seems to be after. A wide variety of interesting people (both good and evil) enter Charlie's life as he sets out to help the lost baby. Charlie will need all his courage and the help of his friends, both old and new, to get to the bottom of the mystery. The characters in this book are memorable and wonderful. We loved our journey into Charlie's world and are eagerly anticipating the sequel. My son can't wait to share this book with all his friends.
