And there’s a vain talking cat called Boldrick with a silver whisker, just like Isabelle. I thought he was funny and can picture him with his posh English saying that his hair is like a Da Vinci canvas and he even has a fur ball problem before going into the tunnel, maybe because of all his over fur cleaning just like my cat Princess Fluffy. Oh and I can’t stop thinking about Boldrick’s vanilla hair gel and fringe and I thought that was funny but don’t think my cat would like hair gel like Boldrick does. (=^.^=)~
There are lots of funny parts, too, I like how its written and the funny things that are said by Bianca like “horse mite” & Isabella like “Warterella” and what Esme says reminds me of my teacher last year, she would have loved the Agartha stuff and I think that would be cool if it was real because it would help the planet heaps.
This book is well written and I found it really easy to picture what was happening and what the characters were like. It even made super gross toad cuisine, Isabella was eating seem super yummy but thought the parts about Mozzy’s toad family members was very sad. Everything about the story is interesting like the magical stuff, Agartha tech and the cheeky stuff they said.
Oh yeah and Isabelle has to pass three tests. The silver strand she has had it’s magic drained and now Isabelle has only five days to live, and she gets turned into a toad and that’s when things start to get dangerous and I don’t wait to spoil it for anyone by saying more about the story.
This book is really really awesome, unique and has lots of super cool interesting stuff and tons of funny surprises!!

As a retired teacher and as a grandparent, I was more than pleased with the story. The author mixes the right amount of magic and being a kid into a quality read. I'm a huge fan of the Percy Jackson stories and as with that series, I see a solid story line that kids will enjoy reading and will follow.
In this day and age, with so many children not voluntarily reading as they did before, when you find a gem like this book, it stands out.
Definitely recommend and suggest buying a second copy for your child's classroom library. I'm sure teachers would be pleased to have this author's books in the classroom.
I had originally purchased the latest in the series (the silver skull) at its release event. I thought it only made sense to start at the beginning and I am really glad I did! I will definitely be encouraging my kids to read this series and I am pretty eager, myself, to start the second book now.
I really loved the science discussions embedded throughout the book. The characters talk about real science concepts rather conversationally (not like some books where the author is sort of fudging their knowledge of things). It made me happy when they talked about gardening, biology, chemistry, and physics concepts. As a reader, I feel respected!
There is shapeshifting that goes on in this book and I love how it's done. The world is described beautifully and the main character is a very smart and kind person who is easy to admire and root for. I was not 100% sure about it when I read there were talking animals, but I loved how that was done. All the characters were enjoyable to read about. The world was so vivid and interesting!
I cannot recommend this book highly enough! I have nothing negative to say about it :-)
