The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is a stunning first novel with exceptional quality writing and a uniquely imaginative plot from a brand new publisher of children’s books, Quercus. The author has combined the rich, gifted imagination of Lewis Carroll and Maurice Sendak with the child/adult crossover appeal of Mark Haddon. The plot is wonderfully exciting with a fast-paced narrative and quick humour that makes it an utterly compelling and addictive read.

Synopsis

Hazel's Phantasmagoria by Leander Deeny

Hazel, the heroine, travels to her Aunt's country house for a holiday. Her Aunt is bitter, angry and rude, so Hazel expects her stay to be a nightmare - little does she expect, though, that there are actual nightmares living in the garden.

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 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!
