    As a massive fan of Anne fine I was intrigued to see this on the grade five verse and prose syllabus for Lamda The book is very light and fluffy telling the tale of a boy whose uncle gets landed with him while his parents redecorate the kitchen that he destroyed It is a very quick read with some laugh out loud funny bits Definitely for the younger reader or for the young at heart

    Cautionary tale for parents this is what can happen if your children are bored Sure we want them to exercise their independence and use their imagination, but those things can be unexpectedly destructive

  6. says:

    It was a fun read at first Everything was just so mysterious that it kept me wondering what would happen next Well, the answer is, nothing I expect too much Next time, I have to remind myself to imagine less I gave it 2.5 to be exact Overall, a quick read but disapointing.

    I wanted to like thisThe hero is a 12 year old boy, Harry goes to an unnamed island with his Uncle Tristam Light hearted story, suitable for boys Definately older fiction, but young older fiction.Print suitable for struggling readers.

  8. says:

    This book is funny at times but it can be a little bit boring as well I loved reading about all of the strange foods that Morning Glory eat

  9. says:
