4.3 out of 5 stars
Liar and Spy
Format: Kindle Edition|Change

on 21 April 2014
This is a superb book and is a contemporary 'Stig of the Dump'. It prepares children to judge the unknown; helps them prevent victimisation; teaches them to become a leader and help others of the same age or around that. It also helps children learn that traumatic family situations can be managed. I loved it and was very sorry to finish reading it.

Rebecca Stead's book kept my two boys (8 and 6) riveted night after night as I read it for their bedtime story. It wasn't only them - I looked forward to each new chapter just as much. It's a story about real kids, real life, real families and the fantasies they weave to help them all cope. A beautiful, warm story - and a future classic for sure.

I wouldn't normally go for a book like this however it was recommended to me by a friend and I have to say this book is great! It is about a boy who is managing several problems in life such as bullying and how he also joins a spy club and looks out for somebody called Mr X. It is a great book.

Lovely book that's well written and toward the end speaking about overcoming your forearms with your friends. This book also highlights the importance of friendship.

Daughter reads heaps. They are reading this at the school Book Club, so it was chosen by a teacher, and they love it.

Bought for my eleven year old. She liked it because it was well-written and suspenseful without being depressing. (She has read a lot of very sad kids' books recently).

What a great book - I should read more children's books. t had the same feeling as 'The Curious Incident of the dog in the night' about it. Knew something was going to come out - just didn't know what. Really worth reading.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book - accompanying the protagonist on his journey through challenges to learning about the meaning of friendship and how it can take different forms for different people.
