Fennymore and the Brumella by Kirsten Reinhardt

Imagine a boy living all alone in a large old house with only a sky-blue bike (who thinks he's a horse) for company. After his great-aunt dies (of dachshund poisoning - what else?) Fennymore sets off with his new friend Fizzy to find his parents, who have disappeared. They fall foul of a silvery grey gentleman and an evil doctor who wants to get his hands on a mysterious invention, but Fennymoire finds a maybe-dad. And a brumella. Whatever that is. A zany adventure story with a touch of fantasy. Great fun and superb black and white illustrations by David Roberts of Dirty Bertie fame.

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.

Lovereading4kids is great, we get books really early never late. We love to read and review, and think you would like it too. The excitement

Jasmine Harris-Hart, age 12

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 has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

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.

Angela East

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