The Kneebone Boy by Ellen Potter


Imagine going to your Aunt's house because your father is going away on business and she's not home either - where do you go then?

Feiwel and Friends will be releasing this book in September and sent me an ARC to read for review. It's middle grade fiction and full of wacky characters.

Not only are these children real strange, the adults in the family aren't much better. The children are ostracized in the village. No one trusts them and they are just odd enough not to fit in. Nor do they mind that they're left alone. They can take care of themselves. But they didn't intend to find themselves on the streets of London, all alone.

In a "Lemony Snicket" kind of way, all the things come together and all those mix and match hints through the story finally fit together.

It's silly and fun read for your child aged 9 - 12 years. They'll keep those pages turning to see what happens next in this far fetched tale!

If you would like my copy of this ARC, follow these steps:

1) Leave a comment here on the blog;

2) Send an email to info @ bookfaerie (take out the spaces) with your name and address and why you'd like to read this book. I'll pick a winner in about a week.
