Living deep in the wild woods, Xar is a wizard who has no magic.
Up in the iron warrior fort lives Wish, a warrior who likes magic.

This was a touching book all about love, loss and hope. I enjoyed every moment of it, and the slightly riddle-like stories especially, yet it probably would have been more appropriate for an older reader. It helps you understand what life is like for some children and how frustrating it can sometimes be when people don't understand.

The dream. The thing that haunts Conor every night, the thing which makes his life a misery. Go to school, be treated like a disease, get beaten up, go home, have the dream. He wishes his life were different, that his life were normal. That his Mum's treatment would work, she would get better, and they could be normal again. And then his life does change, when he starts to get visits from the monster. Ancient and mysterious, the yew tree has come walking, for he has been called. It wants Conor's deepest, darkest secret: the truth.

This is definitely recommended to children aged 11+ because it is a very deep read and may be a bit confusing for younger readers. A fabulous book; I cannot wait to see the film!

This is an enthralling mystery book, about a girl called Nansi who is determined to find her lost mother. I would have given it 4.75 stars if I could because every single word in this book was spell-binding, yet I still felt the ending was a little rushed.

Nansi is living under the 'care' of a nasty theatre owner named Sid. Despite hating her work she still does it because Nansi is determined to get enough money so that she can hire a detective in order to look for her missing mum. Luckily life is made easier seeing as she has a friend, Bea, but when Constance and Violet arrive her situation becomes life-threatening. What comes after is some vital information, a murder, an escape, and an extremely clever twist right at the end. Will Nansi find her mother?

Most certainly recommended to children aged 9-11, a fabulous book to read.
