Wow, this was such an amazing book! It was funny, full of wonderful descriptions and the characters were all brilliant. Turpin was a personal favourite, she reminded me a bit of Tinkerbell – a mischievous little madame, but intent on protecting Ratty much like Tinkerbell protected Peter Pan. Throughout the book there were ideas that reminded me of classic stories I had read when I was younger such as The Magic Faraway Tree and Five Children and It and I think Michelle Harrison has taken some of those basics and given them a thoroughly modern twist to bring it up to date with what children enjoy reading now; all the classic elements are still there, just written in a way that is very accessible to youngsters now. This is the prequel to her Thirteen Treasures series, a series I haven’t actually read, and this book is a story within itself so can be read as a stand alone novel if you wish. Personally I will now be getting the Thirteen Treasure series because I have been mesmerised by Michelle’s story telling. A brilliant novel, perfect for boys and girls who like adventure stories with a bit of magic 🙂
