The Time of Green Magic Reader Reviews

The Time of Green Magic


A magical book that is full of suspense, perfect for children age 8 upwards. I couldn't put it down

I really loved this book and couldn't put it down. It's magical and full of suspense and a little bit creepy. I read it all in one day I enjoyed it so much and I have recommended it to all my friends.

A wonderful extravaganza of adventure and suspense. Amazing!

The Time Of Green Magic is an extraordinary read about a house where books open and take the reader into to world on the pages. Once you get into it it's hard to stop almost as if your a spectator of the story not just reading the events but seeing them and watching them develop. Amazingly written by Hilary Mckay, one of my favourite authors, entertaining and enthralling, I could read this over and over again.

I would definitely recommend this book! It’s mysterious and intriguing.

The book was quite good. I thought this because it would really get you hooked in and makes you not want to put the book down. The book is about Abi, Max and Louis who live in a house covered in ivy. The house uses green magic to make things happen......

I would definitely recommend this book! It’s mysterious and intriguing.
