….Book Review the other half!

The Name of this Book is Secret by Pseudonymous BoschI recently half reviewed this book as it looked good (but I hadn’t finished it). While taking time out with the family I managed to read the rest of it. I really enjoyed it!!!! Would say it’s for 9/10 year olds- 13. I couldn’t put it down and can’t wait to read the next one to find out what happens. In a nutshell a girl comes by a box “The Symphony of Smells”, makes friends with a boy, stumbles across a magicians secret diary and together they work out what happened to him. There are goodies, baddies (a weird couple and a secret organisation) and some of it’s quite amusing. I particularly love how long words and particular bits of history are explained. They’re sort of included in a non-patronising way in the story. There’s also a glossary at the back. Have got to read the next book as it’s been left on a cliff hanger! If your child (or you!) have read it would love to hear your thoughts on it!
