Ms. Webb devoted a lot of energy and a big part of the beginning of the first book to introducing us to Rose and getting us invested in her progress and her success. This third volume marks a substantial step forward in Rose's transformation from a servant girl to a true Magician's Apprentice, and that progress complements the growth generally in the other favorite supporting characters, especially Rose's friend Bill.
Once the adventure begins, (we travel to Venice to recover a stolen magical mask), and Rose is called to action, the plot develops briskly and cleanly and the resolution is satisfying, if a bit pat. Since we're talking about magical kids in a book for middle graders I don't quite see the point of quibbling over plot holes.
The upshot is that this a carefully written, engaging, imaginative growing up tale with magic, a smart-mouth talking cat, suspense, a fine supporting cast and a winning and wise heroine. The charm of the first book continues through the series, which is very good news indeed. What a nice find.
Please note that I received a free advance ecopy of the upcoming U.S. edition of this book in exchange for a candid review. Apart from that I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.
I really enjoyed this book because there is always a mystery in it. This book is part of a series of books by Holly Webb. I recommend that you start at the beginning of the series to understand the plot of the books.
Rose is a magical servant girl who is an apprentice to the King's Magician - MR Fountain (a great magician); but when the powerful magic mask disappears, Rose has to save the world as the powers are not known.
She travels to Venice to find it but who knows what could happen...?
Holly Webb is a bestselling author who has written 4 books about Rose's life. She has also started a new series called `Lily', which is just like Rose. Here are some of the other books Holly Webb has created:
Rose, Rose and the Lost Princess, Rose and the Magician's Mask, Rose and the Silver Ghost, Lily 2011, Lily and Shining Dragons 2012, Molly Magic, My Naughty Little Puppy.
IT WAS FOR MY 11 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER WHICH SUPRISED ME BECAUSE PREDOMINANTLY SHE READS BOOKS ABOVE HER AGE. (READING AGE OF 16) SHE DOES ENJOY "MAGICAL" STORIES AND COMPLICATIONS.
IWAS READ VERY QUICKLY AND ENJOYED
