NOt as good as her story books but still not a bad read
on 16 February 2017
I read a lot and have recently finished reading the seven books in the series of Septimas Heap so when I saw this book I thought it would be just as good and so bought it.
Whilst I love the querkiness of the book, I was disappointed with some of the drawings. Don't get me wrong, they all all very very good: however, they are not discriptive of what the book counter up.
I know that we all get our own idea of what people look like and what the houses look like, but The Heap parents are drawn far too young, and do not have the wizard green eyes that the series makes you very aware that the Wizards have. Simon Heap is drawn almost as old as his father, whilst the young Septimas Heap, as a young expendable is far to nourished and clean looking. Marcia Overstrand has shoes not as described in the book, much too short in the toes, not at all as described I the books.
I think this book is ok, but not as good as her story books by a long way.
