There's been a whole lot of new books in the library, and I've been reading some of them: three that I can really recommend.
Another book I really liked was Small Change For Stuart by an author I hadn't heard of before. It's also an adventure. But this one is a quest too and a puzzle. Stuart, the boy in the book, discovers that his long-dead great uncle was a magician and a maker of magic machines. More important, his great uncle has left a trail of clues to find his mysterious workshop.
But other people are looking for the workshop too. This book kept me turning the pages. I really wanted to find out if Stuart would find the next clue and get to the workshop, even though I knew he must do!
The last of the three books I'm reading at the moment. It's called The Unforgotten Coat, by another author I really like, Frank Cottrell Boyce, who wrote the book and film Millions. Like the other two books, this one is a short easy read, but has lots in it. It's about two Mongolian boys who arrive in a Year 6 class of a school in England. The boys really are very unusual, and there is a bit of a mystery about why they behave the way they do. Highly recommended!
