      Good Kids Book

      I have been reading a lot more books that I might not read normally lately due to my kindle, although its really a kids book I thought I may as well give it a go since it was free; I often just go through the list of the free kindle books and download them all, I just delete the ones that I don't really like the start of.

      The age of the narrators is pretty similar to the age of the intended audience; two about 13 year olds. Ben and Casey Alderman have to stay with their grandparents for their summer who live on a remote farm; their Dad works away meanwhile their Mum is mysteriously in a coma and has been for some time. While they are at the farm they discover a whole world of magic hidden away in the field next to the farm after accidentally stumbling through the bamboo. It is a magical world filled with mythical creatures such as elves, witches, dwarves and everything you could think of. They are enchanted by the world at first but soon find out that there is a dark presence at work, and they are destined to defeat it, will they ever succeed and save the land?

      The book was actually really good considering that it was free, and although it was a childrens book and you could really tell this it was still enjoyable yet a little basic at times. This just meant it was suitable for all people. The fantasy world was crafted really well though, all of the different creatures were described very well. it was originally free but now it is 86p, so even though you have to pay its still not really bad since the RRP of most paperbacks these days seem to be about £7.99!
