Synopsis

The Grimstones Collection by Asphyxia

Hello, my name is Martha Grimstone. Shall I tell you my best secret? One day I'm going to be Lady Martha the Magnificent. I don't know what my special talent is, but I hope to find it any day now. I live in a grand old house in a valley full of rare and thirsty herbs, which my grandfather uses to heal and comfort people. If only he would let me into his apothecary so I could work on my very own spells...The Grimstones Collection contains four gothic fairytales about a giant egg, a magical doll's house, a stubborn whirlwind, and a school of very great tradition.

Elosie Clarkson – 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!

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

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

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.
