5.0 out of 5 stars Good read with a nice atmosphere, 31 May 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Wilkins' Tooth (Paperback)
Whilst not the absolute best work of the author (some of whose other books are frankly outstanding) this book is definately worth buying. The setting is perhaps a trifle old-fashioned, but the atmosphere of magic and danger is well-conveyed, and the gently moral message of the story (that revenge is not always a good idea) is well-developed through the medium of the amusing and occasionally frightening adventures of Own Back Ltd., a "company" which specialises in providing revenges for the children of the area, for very reasonable prices (about 5-20 pence!).
The danger of local "witch" Biddy Iremonger is subtley built up , and the small band of friends which gather to oppose her are memorable in their various personalities.
Depending on reading age and maturity, this would be particularly enjoyed from ages seven to twelve, and should become a firm favourite among the children of any family!
