One of my favourites

Eva Ibbotson creates characters who are engaging and believable despite being witches, wizards and ghouls! One of my favourite stories, love listening to it whilst doing other boring things like tidying up!

The right side of spooky

I downloaded this book for Halloween listening for my 6 and 4 yr old boys - crossing my fingers that it wouldn't be too "girly" (as it's essentially about the search for love) or too scarey.



In fact this book is fantastic. Yes it does have lots of atmospheric descriptions of devilish mazes, hedges dripping blood and unpleasant familiars, but it's done in such a matter-of-fact way to seem normal for those characters. No nightmares from either of my boys. Even when some of the spells go wrong, they were gripped rather than scared.
