Review – The House on Hoarder Hill

“That was the grandest fun I’ve had in years.”

Mikki Lish & Kelly Ngai

I received a copy of The House on Hoarder Hill from @scholastic_au for review.

This book is described as a spooky, magical adventure.

It follows siblings, Hedy and Spencer while they stay at their Grandfather’s spooky mansion. They enlist the help of a talking stag’s head and bear rug while searching for clues to the mystery of their Grandmother’s dissapearance.

This was a very fun read, I really enjoyed the light humour throughout the story. Hedy and Spencer have a very typical brother-sister relationship and that makes this very easy to relate to.

I wasn’t a huge fan of the use of magicians as it’s not a hobby I find myself feeling attached to. However, I think it lends itself to the story well and will make for the perfect amount of hijinks and trickery for young readers without being too scary.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

– Happy Reading! –
