The Lovereading4Kids comment

As with Sarah Matthias’ debut this has some brilliantly described characters that you can visualise completely in your mind as if they were standing with you, not least Tom Fletcher himself. It’s also a terrific adventure story, rich in quirky historical detail and anecdote. A fantastic unputdownable historical whodunit. Her website,, offers a Cure of the Month, currently a peppermint and rosemary concoction designed to get rid of colds.


Tom Fletcher And The Angel Of Death by Sarah Matthias

What the author said: "I wrote my second book, Tom Fletcher and the Angel of Death, for my children too. However, by now I had a publisher for my first book so I was much more disciplined in the way that I wrote. I still wrote it for my children but I had much more of an idea about how long I wanted it to be. My son, Charlie, read every chapter ‘hot off the press’ and is a really great critic. In fact, I am now writing my third book and he is reading it chapter by chapter and still keeping me to the mark."

When Brother Benedict is found dead in Saint Wilfred’s Beast House, eaten by Delilah, the lion he kept to terrorise the people of St Agnes-next-the Sea, there is no shortage of suspects.

But when the wrong man is accused of the crime, and threatened with an agonising death, young novice Tom Fletcher has no choice but to investigate.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

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.
