An brilliantly scary story for children (and grown-ups too!)
on 4 December 2003
I bought this book for my son as he was immediately captivated by the extremely scary illustration on the front depicting the evil monster Mokee Joe. Like some books of this genre a great cover can sometimes hide a very mediocre story, however four hours later when my son proclaimed he had finished mokee joe i was more than intrigued. What I found was a brilliant and well crafted tale which will have great appeal for adults and children alike. It is an extremely gripping story full of intrigue and suspense and a fair amount of humour. Compared to the latest Harry Potter instalment that I believe my son to have given up on tis appears far easier for children my sons age (10) to enjoy. We both wait with great anticpation for the sequel!!! P.Mcgann Shepherds Bush.
