The Lovereading4Kids comment

A magnificent debut full of wit and humour from a one-time stand-up comedian. If you were to put a kingdom beyond the world, Manhatten, a goddess-in-training and a pet vulture you wouldn’t think there would be a story to be told. Well you’d be wrong. Amanda Lees has drawn these supposed disparate elements together into something that really has more than a little something. It’s wild, it’s wacky, it’s frightening and full of adventure. It’s an unmissable treat and the first in the Kumari trilogy. See also: Kumari: Goddess of Secrets and Kumari: Goddess of Destiny

Synopsis

Kumari - Goddess of Gotham by Amanda Lees

Kumari is a goddess-in-training who lives in a secret valley kingdom. She is destined to stay young forever, unlike people in the World Beyond. But Kumari longs to break out of her closeted life at the Palace, where her only real friend is a baby vulture, and there's nothing to think about, except the mystery of her mother's death.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
