Wonderful Adventure in an Alternate History,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Black Hearts in Battersea (The Wolves Of Willoughby Chase Sequence) (Paperback)
This is the sequel to the excellent "The Wolves of Willoughby Chase". My daughter read that book in school and then I read this one to her at home. It was a good fun night time read as I got to practice my rather terrible rendition of a French accent, and my daughter got to giggle at me.
But my lack of skill with accents aside, this book was an interesting and engrossing adventure by a first class author. My daughter loved it, and so did I. Suitable for any age from children to adult (although older teens may skip it because it does not look cool to read children's books. That is their loss though, if they do).
Before this book, when I thought of Battersea, it was of the old power station and inner London traffic filled streets. This book paints a picture of a very different Battersea, and one that was very engaging.
