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.
Suitable for all ages! A great historical (fantasy) adventure!
The story follows the character Simon, who firstappeared in the Wolves of Willoughby Chase, on his stay in London and hisstumbling across a Hanoverian plot to kill the legitimate Englishking.
A great read for readers of all ages!
Going to look for more in the series now.
I have been reading this . Under the covers and is the best book ever joan aiken is my favourite writer thank you for the joyful book.
