Great for age range 7-9
This is a book which all too rarely comes along. Full of imagination, strange creatures, inventions and happenings; Iâve not found a reader who hasnât absolutely adored it whether theyâre 7 or 12 or 72. Illustrated quite beautifully throughout by the author this novel is a labour of love – a brilliant debut - and one which will endure for its content is so special.

Synopsis

Here Be Monsters! by Alan Snow

Welcome to Ratbridge. But beware - for there is skulduggery afoot. Arthur has fallen foul of the appalling Snatcher and is trapped alone in the town, with no way home. Meanwhile Snatcher and his men are working tirelessly in secret on a fiendish and dastardly plan to take over Ratbridge - and the world. With the help of Willbury Nibble QC, some friendly boxtrolls and cabbage-heads, Marjorie the frustrated inventor, and the rats and pirates from the Ratbridge Nautical Laundry,
can Arthur thwart Snatcher's evil plans - and find his way home?

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.
