    Story

    I bought this as a Halloween listen for the 3 and half hour drive to Bristol - crossing my fingers. We'd listened to a few Eva Ibboston and she doesn't disappoint.

    The result was bliss. My boys (aged 5 and 7) were practically silent the whole way, totally wrapped up in the story. There was some cheering, laughing and an "OH NO" from the back at critical moments, but they loved it.

    This would be ideal for a Harry Potter fan. A young boy is adopted by a Hag as her familiar, as her toad refuses to do any more magic. The Hag then, unwillingly, is forced to take him on a quest and he ends up in a similar, yet parallel, magical word. All ends happily although, frankly at points, you are left wondering how.

    There are some scary moments (like Harry Potter) so I would not recommend this for the very young or nervous types. We listened to it on the motor way in pitch darkness, and the effect was electric. Very spooky!

    When a Hag, an orphan boy, and a troll called Ulf get sent to rescue a princess from an ogre, they expect it to be a fairly standard magical mission. But the ogre is depressed, the princess doesn't want to be rescued - and the ogre's dead wife is turning in her grave. The Norns who rule their fates decide to take things in hand - will the Ogre meet a bloody end, or will he get a happy ending?

    Story

    My local reading library is divided into ability sections. Wild Born was the next level up to books my 8 yr old son is reading, so I thought I'd get the audiobook.

    The 4 main characters are 12 years old, so I suppose its aimed at the 8 to 12 yr bracket.My 6 yr old son didn't understand some of the vocabulary ("What's a precipice?" He shouted from the back of the car) but he did enjoy the thrust of the story.

    I was not entirely convinced by the narrator - her range of "voices" isn't very wide, but at least she's consistent with them - but the story cracks along at a rapid pace. This was great for us as its the Easter Holidays, and we had quite a few half hour plus drives. How it would've worked for the more stop/start school run I'm not sure. So: mild peril, one death (sensitively handled), children in control, magic superpowers bestowed by a spirit animal (they choose you, not everyone gets one). As soon as it finished, they were begging me to get the next one. Result! Oh and a proper cliff hanger ending. You'll want to have the second book on stand by, just in case.

    I had noticed on the library paperback that Scholastic had a computer game to accompany the book (www.spiritanimals.com), so I let the boys on that too. This allows you to choose your hero, bond with your spirit animal and go off on a quest. The combination is dynamite. To get more money etc you need codes from the back of the books in the series. Whilst this is no use with the audiobook, if you had a reluctant reader you were trying to tempt into doing to actual reading, it would definitely be worth a try.

    My 6 yr old struggles with the computer game (lots of reading on screen instructions, which bores him after a while). I spotted him in the garden with a green cloak from our dressing up box, attempting to "bond" with one of our cats. It's that kind of a book.

    Four children separated by vast distances all undergo the same ritual, watched by cloaked strangers. Four flashes of light erupt, and from them emerge the unmistakable shapes of incredible beasts - a wolf, a leopard, a panda, a falcon. Suddenly the paths of these children - and the world - have been changed forever.

    Story

    Trying to match the requirements of a 6 yr old / (well read) 8 yr old plus parents is tricky. Every now-and-again you get it right - this book definitely did it for us.

    To get ALL the jokes, it probably helps to be 40+ and have read Tolken, Terry Pratchet, watched Xena Warrior Princess, Wizard of Oz and the like. But if you haven't, its ok. There is still plenty to be entertained by, provided (of course) you are into warrior heroes, ogres and magical spells in the first place.

    In fact, there's so much going on ALL THE TIME that I'm quite happy to listen to this one over and over. From the flying wardrobes, to the migraine prone dragon, to the adventures of the tiny teaspoon ... it all cracks on merrily. If you are driving, you may well miss some of the good bits (concentrate on the road!) and be happy to go back. My two laughed so loud at some bits, they missed the next 5 minutes, so we had to rewind anyway.

    The narration is excellent. Lots of different characters well maintained. My son found book 2 at the library but to be honest, I think my reading skills might be a bit of an anti-climax. Here's hoping Audible have it too.

Randalf is in trouble: he's stony broke. He's just spent his last silver pipsqueak. There's only one way for a wizard to make cash on Muddle Earth, and that's by doing some magic. Meanwhile, life is about to change beyond recognition for Joe Jefferson, an ordinary schoolboy on ordinary Earth, and his dog, Henry.

Andrew's greatest hits:
  • The Hound of Rowan: Book One of the Tapestry

    "Well worth getting"

    Overall

    This book is a great read, it's very imaginative and the characters are very vivid. At times it is quite similar to Harry Potter - but I doubt that would be a problem for most people.
    I would recommend this book to anyone as it is very well read and engaging.

  • Spirit Walker: Chronicles of Ancient Darkness, Book 2

    "Better than the first book"

    Overall

    Now I enjoyed the first book in this series, it was well written, well read and engaging. It did however feel a bit predictable, something that this book makes up for. It keeps the revelations coming right up to the end and while the plot progression is slower I think the story benefits from this, especially as you see relationships forming and breaking.
    If you liked the first book I'd definately give this one a read.

  • The Second Siege: Book Two of The Tapestry

    "A good follow up"

    Overall

    This is a good book, it follows on well from the end of the first book and you get to find out a bit more about the background of the main characters. For me it wasn't quite as good as the first book and you need to concentrate a little harder on it. Still I'd recommend getting it if you liked the first book.

  • "Amazing... as always"

    How Brian Jacques continues to pull this off I will never know. This book had me tense and angry one moment, then feeling all warm and mushy the next, only to have me on the point of tears the next and in-between this rollercoaster of emotion I was frequently left laughing myself silly.

    From heroes you love to vileness you just love to hate, not to mention the plethora of other characters ?The Sable Queen? is a story that will have you gripped from the off set. And is filled with a cast whose exploits you can?t help but want to follow. With fights between good and evil, evil and evil there is more than enough intrigue to keep anyone happy. Not to mention the odd fight between good and good, there?s nothing quite like the relationship between father and daughter.

    Yet another terrific Redwall book that will delight, both, fans and newcomers alike.

In this 21st swashbuckling entry, Vilaya the Sable Quean and her henchman Zwilt the Shade set their evil sights on Redwall Abbey. But also headed toward the abbey is Buckler, Blademaster of the Long Patrol-a brave hare perfectly suited to hero status.

    War has finally come. But it's not a war between good and evil, or light and dark - it's a war between Sanctuaries. For too long, the Irish Sanctuary has teetered on the brink of world-ending disaster, and the other Sanctuaries around the world have had enough. Allies turn to enemies, friends turn to foes, and Skulduggery and Valkyrie must team up with the rest of the Dead Men if they're going to have any chance at all of maintaining the balance of power and getting to the root of a vast conspiracy that has been years in the making.

    Meet Karn. He is destined to take over the family farm in Norrøngard. His only problem? He'd rather be playing the board game Thrones and Bones. Enter Thianna. Half human, half frost giantess. She's too tall to blend in with other humans but too short to be taken seriously as a giant. When family intrigues force Karn and Thianna to flee into the wilderness, they have to keep their sense of humor and their wits about them. But survival can be challenging when you're being chased by a 1,500-year-old dragon, an evil uncle, wyverns, and an assortment of trolls and giants.

    All is quiet in the seaside town of Bywater-by-Sea - that is until a meteorite falls to earth, landing in the middle of the Field Craft troop's camp.

What's more, the excavation has uncovered a glittering rock, and the dust is making Bywater-by-Sea even more eccentric than usual.
