then. The way it is written is fantastic and the madness of the characters especially in the first chapter had me laughing out loud. Although the book does get darker as it goes along, it is an amusing and exciting story that is a must for everyone.
I loved this book when I first read it and immediately read the next one. Its supernatural but so are the parent. But it almost makes the story better. I recommended Anthony Horowitz to my brother and he has almost read all his books and is waiting for the new Alex Rider! This story gives you the shivers but also keeps you laughing for hours so don't get put off by the front cover.
This book is mainly about a boy called David Elliot who gets expelled form his old school Beton collage. His new school is just weird! It's situated on an island that isn't on the map. With his best friends Jill and Jeffery they try to figure out the mysteries of Groosham Grange but they do not know what they are getting into. All the teachers are weird and so are the boys. But Jeffery suddenly changes he now is wearing a black ring. Then David escapes he steels Captain Bloodbaths boat and heads for Norfolk. But in the library he finds a book on Groosham Grange and finds out all its secrets.
I would highly recommend this book to 8-12 year olds it had me laughing for ages but maybe not for those who are lovers of Animal Hospitals you might not find it very interesting. It's a really good book and I hope lots of people enjoyed it just as much as me!
A word of warning, though: this is more Roald Dahl than JK Rowling. Although most children love it, the sensitive ones may find it rather frightening.
