Welcome to Week Three!!
This is a weekly event started by Mary Simms on her super Book Craic blog.
Every Thursday, the aim is to promote the brilliant middle grade books we all love so much! There are a few steps needed to participate…
Post a picture of a front cover of a middle-grade book which you have read and would recommend to others with details of the author, illustrator and publisher.
Open the book to page 11 and share your favourite sentence from that page. Choose three words to describe the book. Share why you would recommend this book, or link to your review.
Previously I have recommended Demelza and the Spectre Detectors by Holly Rivers and The House on Hoarder Hill by Mikki Lish and Kelly Ngai. Both published by Chicken House.
This week I am pleased to recommend, The Light Hunters by Dan Walker, Published by UCLan Publishing, Cover Design by George Ermos.
Favourite sentence from Page 11 is “Lux didn’t know whether the antique book in the library would contain what he needed to cure his grandpa, but he wasn’t just going to sit there like everyone else, hoping for a miracle.”
Three Words to Describe this book; Adventure, Monsters, Bravery
Lux lives in a world where monsters lurk and keep cities locked away. He hides a life changing secret- something that must remain hidden to protect himself and his grandfather. However, we as readers know that secrets in an MG fiction book must reveal themselves. Lux shows his abilities for light healing publicly by saving best friend Maya from a monster attack.
From this point, Lux must avoid capture by those who want to use his power for evil. Luckily Maya and Grandfathers nurse, Ester are on hand to help Lux evade capture. More secrets need to be unraveled and mysteries solved in this exciting and thrilling adventure. Hopefully this will be the start of a brilliant MG series.
