A friend had said how much she enjoyed Ross' first book, 'The Nowhere Emporium', and had praised his writing, so I was looking forward to reading this, and wasn't disappointed. I read it in two sittings while on holiday last year, and loved the characters of Amelia Pigeon and Kirby, as well as the underlying family themes (Kirby's mother is in a coma from which we don't know if she'll recover, and he has become distanced from his dad) and the overall plot, with all its inherent mystery and high stakes.Without giving too much away, I also loved how the real Amelia Pigeon turns out to be someone you would not immediately expect to be depicted as a young girl in a yellow raincoat, as well as the fact that she is not even remotely a straightforward character.I would definitely recommend this and am now looking forward to 'The Nowhere Emporium' even more.
I read the first book to my daughter, when it was recommended by a friend. My daughter and I enjoyed it so much that we had to read this book too. This story is just as good, taking you on a child’s journey with lots of twists and turns. It is a very dark journey through magic and keeps you gripped to the very end, even if you have guessed the ending. I would recommend this story even to an adult. Happy reading 😀
Ross Mackenzie creates the most incredible worlds with his words, full of adventure and magic. I really enjoyed this easy-to-read, dark tale of Kirby and Amelia and their blossoming friendship, full of mystery and emotion.
A great read, compelling and interesting. Lots of magic and quite creepy, strong female characters and themes of friendship, courage, facing fears and hope.
An amazing read a little sad but absolutely amazing I would definitely recommend it
Read to a class of year 6 children ,who hung on every word.Thoroughly recommended.
This book is a FANTASTIC read all about mystery, magic, murder. Highly recommend. AM (S1)
