Book review: The Turners by Mick Elliott

The Turners by Mick Elliott reviewed by a kidTitle: The Turners

Author: Mick Elliott

Publisher: Lothian Books

I’m handing over to Book Boy Junior (aged 9) for this review.

About the book: Leo Lennox has an epic problem. You’d think that growing a tail in the middle of the school library would be the worst thing that could happen to you, but Leo is about to discover that things can always get worse and a whole lot weirder… (in a really funny way).

What I thought: Leo is funny – he’s not crazy, in fact, he’s sensible (kind of), but the way he thinks is funny. He’s surprised when a family secret comes out on his birthday, and the story is really adventurous.

I thought this book was really exciting because there were always shape-shifters and different surprises just around the corner.

Mick Elliott has a great imagination and I look forward to reading the next book in this series.

I recommend this book for kids aged 8-11.

Mick posts about his books every day, but in such an inventive way that the message remains fresh. Seriously – go look! (Kid review of The Turners (#1) ) […]
