“If you were responsible for losing a grandmother, nearly burning down your house, and making your mom cry, all in the same day” you’d be in a world of trouble like Colin is.
What’s a boy to do when he’s up against a world of trolls that are wreaking havoc on his life and the lives of those he hold most dear? Definitely not what he’ll do next!
I couldn’t put this down! I’m not a YA or children’s read junkie, I read them to find stuff for the kids but this is one book that I read completely! It was so much fun. It seemed so real. Even my thirteen year old reluctant reading son read this one. I’m also counting the minutes to read it to my much younger nieces & nephews! — This is one for the shelf!
Author: M.G. King
Source: Amazon Free Read on May 22, 2013. I probably wouldn’t have read it though if the author hadn’t sent me a note asking me to review it…
Colin is the main character of the story, who finds himself in a desperate search for his missing Grand. She’s wandered off one night and gone missing. Much to his surprise, he discovers that she’s been kidnapped … by Trolls! This is where it gets complicated for young Colin. Soon enough his younger brother, Sid, goes missing too. The trouble is, who’d believe his story that Trolls live under the house and have a penchant for kidnapping. Would you?
So the adventure moves underground to an amazing place. We soon find that there’s a heap of drama going on in the world of Trolls, which will have a terrible impact on everyone above ground. There’s plenty of action, captures, escapes, and surprises lingering in this story.
In a stroke of genius, Sid had decided to bring along his spy book for reference purposes, in case they were in a jam. It came in very handy and littered the story with comical tips that often had me chuckling as I read. Another character that we meet is Pepper, she’s the mean and grumpy girl from next door, and she was my least favourite character. You’ll need to read it for yourself to see how she deals with the huge chip she has on her shoulder.
In addition to these ones, I seem to have come across lots of Trolls lately, reading Troll Mountain by Matthew Reilly, and watching The Hobbit on DVD. I’m wondering if they really do exist! I really enjoyed this book. It had an action packed climax and a clever twist right at the end.
In a nutshell … Fizz and Peppers is a great read that as I mentioned before, was a pleasant and action filled surprise. There’s a lot more to this one than the cover suggests.
Note: I don’t claim to be a pro-reviewer, I am a reader. My reviews are based on my personal thoughts around the story that the book is trying to tell. I try to focus on the story (which is the reason I read) rather than dissect the book and pass comment on typos, writing style or structure.
From the very beginning, I thought this story was captivating. The style is humorous without being over the top, and Ms. King effortlessly weaves in themes of about the importance of family and friends during the children's adventures underground. The tension builds in true page-turning fashion as each time Colin thinks he's figured out how to defeat the trolls, a new twist puts him further from his goal. Another excellent touch is that each character, including prickly Pepper and feeble-minded Grand, has a heroic moment before the adventure is over. I highly recommend this story
I do wish this was also in paperback format as well. That would make it even easier to share with all the readers who love a brilliant adventure as much as I do. My students and I can't wait to read more from M. G. King.
