Fiddlesticks by Alan Fraser


Fiddlesticks by Alan Fraser

Sticks, tricks and a roll of drums! Charlie Parker. That's me. It's a Cool name - the same as some jazzy musician, according to Beryl. She's the old lady next door and ages ago, she played drums in a Band. Now she's teaching Me! I'm going to be a Magic drummer! Stef's cool too. He's my best mate and he's into magic of another kind, helping a famous magician on stage. But will a two-beat-shuffle and a three-card-trick be enough to help when we discover that Beryl has become the victim of a mean Fiddle? A stomping good read from the author of 13 Pairs Of Blue Suede Shoes.

About the Author

Whenever he can, Alan Fraser likes to play his saxaphone. But at other times he's been an enthusiastic magician, a jug band washboard strummer, a stand-up comedian, a bit of a singer, a composer/bandleader, and the owner of his very own jazz club. There were some other jobs too, but they were all about money - and not much fun at all. He lives in Oxfordshire and is married with two children.

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

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

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