A lot of the classics involved,
This review is from: A Boy Called MOUSE (Hardcover)
When an author writes a tale based on a visit to an old Boarding School you have to hope that the rest of the tale will back up the premise of the original scene without changing flavour or tack. Yet taking that into account, the tale felt that it had dipped into the world of classic literature with hints of Oliver Twist, Great Expectations and Tom Brown's School days brought together in order to help tell the story of Mouse, the tales hero.
Each brings something to the fore, each when blended together with the characters gives something unique which when added to a whole host of interesting supporting cast members make it something a little different. Finally, with a villain of the Sykes persuasion this could be a tale to help bridge the gaps in your young readers library to the epics.
