The heroine, Charly, age 12, has a wonderful imagination and she takes you on several adventures in her native England and Scotland (Loch Ness). She discovers and experiences all kind of fantastical, magical things, leaving you and her fictional dad to wonder if they are they real or not.
The world felt very real, and it was fun to experience the locations from a 12-year-old's POV. I felt like I was right back in London. For American kids, it's also fun to read all the British-isms, like "stone," for weight; Boxing Day; lead, for leash; jumper, for sweater; and torch, for flashlight.
One note for parents of Santa lovers, as Charly is 12, she gives her real take on believing in Santa in the first couple of pages and pretends a bit for her mom. Just so you know. Don't want any spoilers.
Definitely recommend for ages 5 to 8!
These adventures, told with aplomb by author Tim Walker and his daughter, Cathy, are sure to delight its target audience. Furthermore, Charly sets a good example for children, and there's plenty of educational value in there, too, as the stories are peppered with facts and trivia. All this is achieved without compromising the fun - there are sure to be plenty of giggles at bedtime!
