So here are some great Monday reads for you all. And thank you all for entering our fab GiveAway last week. Read on, read on…


Book of the Week

The Sword of Kuromori by Jason Rohan published by Penguin Books South Africa. This is the story of Kenny Blackwood, he is off to Japan to spend the summer with his father, who works there. Curious things begin to happen, even on the plane… and curiouser and curiouser. Kenny discovers that he and his grandfather have a special ability, they can see the spirits behind our real world. The world of mythology is right there with them as they go about their daily life. He is on a quest to unravel this mystery and save millions of lives – time is of course running short and to add to the tension his father is captured by the “Japanese Secret Service.” This is a tale of magic and mythology intertwined, and the fast pace leaves you feeling like you are dashing through a comic book rather than a chapter book. My teens really enjoyed reading it… interesting and intriguing and different to the other spy, mystery, adventure genre that they typically read. We were given The Sword of Kuromori by Penguin Books South Africa for review purposes, the opinions expressed are as usual our own.
