March 2013 Book of the Month This delightful and original madcap adventure takes Daniel on his second visit to his Aunt Severe – or Great- Aunt Emily as she should be known. On his previous visit he saw both sides of his unusual relative’s behaviour; this year, he is sure he will get the better one. But, Daniel is in for a shock. It is Aunt Severe who he has come to stay along with a strange menagerie of unexpected animals…The sooner he can get to the bottom of the mystery of why the Colonel has gone missing again and get him back, the happier Aunt Severe will be. But, where will Daniel begin?

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