The Lovereading4Kids comment

An inventive, dark and lyrically-told fantasy thriller by first-time novelist Philip Womack. Truly compelling, I was utterly transfixed at the story of Edward, a 12 year old boy who, through an ancient book shrouded in a brooding curse that is unearthed, is drawn into parallel worlds of good and evil where the walls in between are weakening and where terror and destruction are all around. Only Edward can lay to rest the dark forces and demons of the past.

Synopsis

The Other Book by Philip Womack

As 12-year-old Edward Pollock starts to turn the pages of an ancient cursed book, he is drawn into a place where dark forces imperil charmed lands. Soon Edward begins to realise that malicious powers are at play. The wall between man and ghost is weakening, and the world beyond is threatening great fear and destruction.

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.

Angela East

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

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.

Katie Lonsdale

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love Lovereading4kids because I get an opportunity to put my opinion forward and to try new books
