Thoughts: I loved Sherlock’s doggy tuxedo on the front cover and I also loved the case. Someone thought someone was their mother but the person who was supposedly the mother doesn’t recognize them! I love this series and the books because I think they have the perfect mysteries! Remember to read Escape from the Forbidden Planet, Return to Cardamom and Stellacardia! Look out for Frankie Dupont and the Comic Convention Caper in 2016!!

Duration: 3 hours

Genre: Adventure!

Extract:

Suddenly, the screen flashed as if a light had popped. At the same time, David jerked up in bed with his jaws wide open and his lips curled back. Two of his teeth seemed slightly extended. His eyes, normally so placid and round, slanted sideways and briefly changed colour from their usual deep blue to a strong shade of brown.

With both hands he clawed wildly at the space in front of him, though nothing appeared to be occupying that space. And out of his throat came an uncommon noise. A roar, not unlike the sound of an engine.

Rating: Book 4 Four Books

Thoughts: I really liked this book. When, I was in Year One I remember being totally obsessed with this series and at home pretending to be David Rain at home. I started off with the little series connected to this where Liz made clay dragons and you met their personalities.

Who Would Like It: Anyone who is 7 plus and who liked the other stories, oh and DRAGONS!! Rrh!

But he needs to get home badly so Gregor and Boots walk to a river that leads away from the Underland.

Giant rat – gnawers – attack them. The Underlanders come to the rescue, Luxa, Vikus and Mareth. They kill the rats and then remove of them in the river.

Genre: Adventure

Extract:

The metal grate to an old air duct was wide open, secured by two rusty hinges at the top. Boots was squinting into the opening, about two feet by two feet, which led into the wall of the building. From where he stood, Gregor could see nothing but blackness. Then a wisp of… what was it? Steam? Smoke? It didn’t really look like either. Some strange vapor drifted out of the hole and curled around boots. She held out her arms curiously and leaned forward.

“No!” yelled Gregor as he lunged for her, but Boots’s tiny frame seemed to be sucked into the air duct. Without thinking, Gregor thrust his head and shoulders into the hole. The metal grate smacked into his back. The next think he knew, he was falling down, down, down into empty space.

Rating: Five books. Rating Five Books

Thoughts: Mum brought me this book from America and book two. I am not sure where else you can buy them, Book Depository. I loved this book because the suspense was utterly amazing and how he is scared but Boots is happily riding cockroaches. I would love to visit the Underland and see Regalia!

Who Would Like It: Anyone who likes adventure and the Hunger Games. Also giant roaches, large bats and massive spiders like Aragog.

Rating: Five books, this showed all the children’s lives and not just Anne’s so it was pretty interesting. Rating Five Books
