They always say children are the harshest critics, so it’s great to get a bit of good feedback off the little scoundrels. This is a review of ‘Casper Candlewacks in The Claws of Crime’ from a chap called Robert, who actually DRESSED UP AS LAMP FLANNIGAN on his ‘Dress Like A Book Character’ day at school. How cool is that?
My personal thoughts about this book are, it’s funny, adventurous and carries on with the story from the last one which was Casper Candlewacks in Death by Pigeon!
In this new book, a mysterious French cat burglar ( called Le Chat) goes around Corne on the Kobb and steals Sir Glossamer de Glaze’s sword and also baby naps Cuddles Candlewacks – Casper’s only (but nail biting) sister.
Also in this book, Ivan Brett (the author) has introduced two new characters who are……The Blossoms who live in a flower shop which is in the village square in Corne on the Kobb. The Blossoms are nice people and they are not idiots like all the villagers apart from Casper! At the end of the book I found out that <BLA BLA BLA SPOILERS DON’T GIVE IT AWAY>
This book is the most bizarre and un-natural book I have ever read because Lamp Flannigan, an inventor in Corne on the Kobb, makes inventions like no other such as the bubble buggy – one of his old inventions that crashed into a coriander surprise for a magician. In this book his latest invention is called the lie detector that used the power of dishonesty to boil an egg…!
Thanks, Robert. If anybody else has a short review of my books, don’t hesitate to send them via the comments for this post. I’ll be sure to post them up on the website.
