Book pages The Skylarks' War
The Skylarks' War
I read it (an adult)
The Skylarks' War is a poignant narrative following the lives of Clarissa ( Clarry), her brother Peter and cousin Rupert. Growing up at a time when the world outside was amidst turmoil, the three and their friends build happy memories together that are at stake during the world war. The 'pity of war' that Owen once wrote about has been brought out once again from the perspective of a kids growing into adults. Although the book does get a bit draggy owing to the monotonous writing style, the plot has been executed brilliantly.

Hilary McKay lists a long bibliography and the book is pretty well researched as well, which is a plus point for any book that is set against the backdrop of the world war. I have been reading War Poets like Owen, Sassoon and Rosenberg lately and this book was indeed a great way to share an alternate perspective.

Book pages The Train to Impossible Places
The Train to Impossible Places
I read it (an adult) & to Sindy aged 11
I decided this year I would broaden my horizons & try several different genres of book, rather than my usual mystery/thriller. This is aimed at the younger generation, but what a magical journey it took you on. A train that appeared in the living room, run by trolls & a yellow bear, a train run on exploding bananas & an adventure that will stay with you forever.
Magic and science meet in this fun adventure for KS2 s. Loved the characters and twists and turns. Look forward to more books from the author if they are as good as this debut.
