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?

Lovereading has given me the opportunity to delve into new and exciting worlds of authors who I would never have tried before.

Glynis Elliott

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!

Joan Hill

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

Lovereading does a stella job in promoting both new and established authors.

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.
