Great plot to draw my son in ...
on 7 June 2010
The plot really appealed to my 8yr old and to me. But I found the quality of the writing very poor. My son is younger than the intended 12+ readership and he found the sentences confusing and I found them clumsy and difficult to read aloud because they flowed so badly.
We saw the authors at a recent literary festival and they were fantastic in person - articulate and interesting! We will probably read the two follow-up books that are planned.
