The Lovereading4Kids comment

Jenny Nimmo's Charlie Bone character is a wonderful creation in children’s literature and fans of Harry Potter awaiting J K Rowling’s next instalment will find it easy to relate to him, his slightly peculiar family and his friends. Jam-packed with dramatic adventure and mysterious events to solve you are sure to get even the most reluctant of readers utterly spellbound.

Rest assured imaginations will run riot afterwards too.

Synopsis

Charlie Bone and the Hidden King (Book 5) by Jenny Nimmo

Charlie Bone awakes one morning to find the city covered with snow and all the animals gone. Where have they gone - and why? Blessed, the dog tells Billy there was a terrible shuddering of the earth and immediately after, he saw a witch with two shadows crossing the hall in Bloor's Academy. Could the discovery of an ancient mirror, and the movement of the shadow in the Red King's portrait have something to do with it? And a strange girl appears outside Charlie's house. She tells him he must follow her to find the animals. Can he trust her, and will she perhaps lead him to find someone he lost long before the animals?

Reviews

This book is a gripping fantasy tale of mystery, suitable for children and adults. If you like Harry Potter you will love this.

About the Author

Jenny Nimmo

Jenny Nimmo lives in a converted watermill in Wales. Her husband, David Wynn Millward, is a painter and print-maker, and all three of her children speak Welsh fluently. She finds Wales, a land of legends, a very inspiring place to live.

For as long as she can remember, Jenny has loved books. At boarding school, reading was her way to overcome loneliness or boredom. However, she is aware that not everyone finds reading comes easily, and feels passionately that every child should have all the help they need, and access to as many books as they want.
