Sunday Snippet: A Syding Adventure of Caravans and Castles and a GiveAway…

March 25th, 2014 · 3 Comments

I said I was posting three GiveAways in a row… in the spirit of building a library book by book, we are sharing books with our readers all week. We have had a book for moms, and a book for families and todays book is for your kids…

The Syding Adventures Caravans and Castles but Mary Weeks Millard This is an easy to read chapter book about two boys, who happen to be best friends. One of them is from a Romany family, who have settled down, and the other has a single mum and has moved from a private school to a public school and lives in a castle, which is actually a bed and breakfast. They both receive their share of playground bullying, and this cements their friendship. This is a christian book, but isn’t airy fairy or packed with blessed little thoughts… it is about eleven year old boys and what they get up to, there daily chores, schoolwork and of course riding bikes and the great outdoors. A number of car thefts in the neighbourhood and the Romany family become easy targets to blame and to get harassed by the police. Can the boys intentionally or unintentionally find the culprits? And there is the disturbing tramp in the woods, with the large Alsatian dog, who is he really? This is a quick read, short easy chapters and I can’t believe how many little mysteries are revealed and resolved, how many issues are raised and tackled. Normal lives of regular boys in a small English village… I would say the main characters are the target market, eleven-ish aged boys and girls, would really enjoy this book.

    I find it easier to find books that my daughters would enjoy than to find books for my son. This would be something he would like to read.

    That looks a really interesting book – one my eldest daughter would enjoy. She reads so much, it’s difficult to keep up with her!
