One of the year's best fantasy offerings for kids. A good one for adults, too. I enjoyed how part of the story happens back at the time of the original printing press.
It got a little long-winded in some places, but other than that, it was great! Spooky, strange, and magical-ages 12 and up.
Doesn't quite live up to its likening to Philip Pullman's The Golden Compass, but a fine first novel involving children's adventures in Oxford, England.
A tale that connects two characters who are centuries apart. Matthew Skelton has woven a story that artfully combines adventure, mystery and suspense! A great read for those who just love books!
This was pretty good; pefect for a pre-teen and kids to share with adults. Perfect for everyone - we listened to it on a long trip and we actually sat in the car a while longer so we could see what happened!
I THINK there's a really good story here HOWEVER, the narrator is so hard to understand that after 2 tries, I simply gave up!!!
