The Lovereading4Kids comment
Silver finds herself caught up in the exciting adventures to stop time vanishing. Helped by her friend Gabriel, she must find the Timekeeper – the only thing that will keep time regular - and so prevent either the wicked Regalia Mason or the sinister Abel Drinkwater from getting to it first. Full of imagination and fun, this is memorable and thought provoking.
Lovereading comment:A remarkable and compelling quest fantasy adventure, full of brilliance and wit, as is befitting an author with the imagination and style of award winning Jeanette Winterson. This is the author’s first foray into a full length novel for children and is full of a wonderful cast of characters, fabulous adventure and brilliantly written.
Tanglewreck by Jeanette Winterson
In a house called Tanglewreck lives a girl called Silver and her guardian Mrs Rokabye. Unbeknown to Silver there is a family treasure in the form of a 17th-century watch called the Timekeeper, and this treasure holds the key to the mysterious changes in time. When Silver goes on the run to protect herself and the Timekeeper, an adventure unfolds.
'Winterson has a fine ear for children's dialogue and her writing is lucid, pitched perfectly at imaginative young readers'
'A fantastical, imaginative and impressive parable'
'An exceptional book: big, ambitious and awash with Winterson's usual inventiveness'
