“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.
– Happy Reading! –
