CD - Audio. Read by Martin Jarvis.
Told from the bird’s eye view of a resident raven, this is a deliciously topsy-turvy comedy full of unusual details. The Otherhand family are far from normal and life in Otherhand Castle is distinctly strange. Edgar the raven cares little for them but, given his view point, he can’t help noticing that things are going very wrong indeed. Edgar’s account of the Otherhand’s family life and how they deal with the danger that is besetting them is as original as it is weird. Marcus generally writes for slightly older readers but this is an absolutely top notch read for the 7+ age range and is sure to get them hooked on reading and ready to then progress on to his books for older readers – click here for his books for older readers.
Flood And Fang (The Raven Mysteries - Book One) - Audio by Marcus Sedgwick
First in brand new series of quirky tales of mystery (with a touch of goth-froth) for 9 year olds. Meet the wonderfully weird Otherhand family and their faithful guardian, Edgar the raven, and discover the dark secrets of Castle Otherhand. Edgar is alarmed when he sees a nasty looking black tail slinking under the castle walls. But his warnings to the inhabitants of the castle go unheeded: Lord Valevine Otherhand is too busy trying to invent the unthinkable and discover the unknowable; his wife, Minty, is too absorbed in her latest obsession - baking; and ten-year-old Cudweed is running riot with his infernal pet monkey.
Only Solstice, the black-haired, poetry-writing Otherhand daughter, seems to pay any attention. As the lower storeys of the castle begin mysteriously to flood, and kitchen maids continue to go missing, the family come ever closer to the owner of the black tail...
-all who lives in the gloomy and vertiginous Castle Otherhand ... Martin Jarvis does Edgar proud, as a wronged and bronchitic scoutmaster, given to corvine croaks. INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
