Wendy Hobbs pens a captivating world, and the writing style is simple, easy-to-read and enjoyable. Her characters are colorful, and the young heroine is brave and determined. The plot was intriguing, and I wonder what new adventures will crop up in Pencliff. I look forward to the next Claudia Quash book.
It was full of excitement, magic, drama and wonderful characters, whether they are hero’s or villains which I think makes a brilliant children’s book.
It was very well written and I loved the way Wendy the author brings this whole new magical world to life and creates such interesting and intriguing characters which you will find yourself loving some of them and also not liking some as much.
In certain parts of the story I found it a little gory and scary in places but I think this was all part of the story and there reasons behind it.
I also found that this is a unisex type of book/story and I think both girls and boys will enjoy it.
I found it a very easy read and was gripped as soon as I read the first couple of chapters.
On the subject of chapters they were very short but that’s what I prefer if I am honest as I find myself reading the book quicker and it makes it a lot more enjoyable.
I would highly recommend that you read this book whether you are a child or an adult I think that even though it comes under the genre of a children’s book adults will also find it an enjoyable read aswell.
On that note I hope you have enjoyed this review and it has intrigued you to read it and I will definitely be reading more of Wendy Hobbs’s work.
The main character Claudia is a great role model for young children, caring and compassionate, yet feisty and adventurous. She was the perfect choice to take on a time-travelling magical adventure and I loved her feline companion Sekora. In fact, all of the characters were great and had some fantastic names. The story is easy enough for tweens to follow but full of enough well written twists to keep you engrossed. I was kept guessing throughout, carried along as the suspense built and secrets were revealed.
The short chapters are an ideal length to read a chapter a night as a bedtime story but you're going to want to keep reading to the end - be warned. I'm looking forward to sharing this book with my children, I know they're going to enjoy it as much as I did. I also can't wait for the next book in what is going to be an amazing series.
The author and Publishing Push shared a copy of this book with me for review (thank you). It has been published. You can find it on Amazon.
The letter tells of a theft long ago and tells her she's the only who can solve the mystery and save her grandmother, Daisy, from being hung for the crime. She's not sure how to do that, so she decides to visit the area in London where the crime was committed.
I knew I was going to like this story as I got started reading but when the author adds a magical cat, she got all my attention. Not only that, there's a beautiful dollhouse full of details, a mini grandfather clock that doesn't work and much more. This is fantasy read that is just right for younger readers. It was also just right for me.
Claudia discovers she can travel through time and meets a young man who becomes a friend and works with her to try to solve the crime.
There's an evil man who wants to use magic to take over the world, a good witch, her grandmother, and more in the past. She learns that as she changes the past, she changes the present, too. She also learns she's not done with her quest. Now Hugo is in trouble!
I enjoyed this story enough it's going in my personal library. I'll be watching for the next book. You ought to read it, too.
At first glance, I thought The Spell of Pencliff might resemble Harry Potter; however, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that Claudia is a typical thirteen-year-old girl who is living a normal life with her parents until her life is turned upside down by the mysterious letter.
I appreciated how Hobbs waited until near the end of the story to reveal Claudia's magical ability, and I thought that Claudia's ability was unique and interesting. I enjoyed the world that Hobbs created; it was detailed, imaginative, and charming.
I found Claudia to be a very likeable character; Hobbs did a wonderful job of portraying her as a well-adjusted, bright, and inquisitive young teenager. Even though The Spell of Pencliff features a female protagonist, I admired the fact that Hobbs created a story that is gender neutral and appropriate for family story time.
Finally, I thought that the story ended on a good note. The ending gives readers some closure, but it also leaves readers wanting to know more about Claudia. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for the next book in the Claudia Quash Series.
