This is wonderfully rich magical fiction for both boys and girls with a terrific mix of Moonfleet meets Treasure Island meets the Arabian Nights. In 17th century Cornwall, Jude's mother was called a witch and he is someone with a strange power, the ability to sense gold wherever it is. When his parents are killed and he is captured by an unsavoury and sinister sea-captain his life changes forever. On this magnificent and msyterious Cornish coastline is there anyone dead or alive who can help him.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

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

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.

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