An excellent fantasy story for younger readers

Having read previous books by this author, I looked forward to seeing what his imagination would conjure up next. I wasn't disappointed. Beginning in slightly darker vein than his previous books, it soon transforms into a super story for younger readers, as Grandad Bracey (the nickname is explained in the book) and his grandchildren, Sally and Peter are whisked away from their home by the ghostly Charlie, in an effort to save the life of their mother

Completely enjoyed this fun adventure story and I am confident that many kids will feel the same. Aimed at around 7 to 12 year olds, the story follows two young kids who lose their father, staying with their fantastical Granddad Bracey and also facing their mother's decision to remarry. The story then takes a wonderful turn of fantasy of ghosts, ancient curses and battles which will certainly get young minds running away!

A very well told story which will be enjoyed by the younger generations. It

This is a great lesson book for children working through tough situations. Two children lose their father and their mother remarries. They are living with their Granddad Bracey and learn that sometimes things don't always go like we want them too. But, when you walk a journey and make it through the rough parts things can turn out better than planned. Great book to read along with your kids. This is for children in 2nd through 5th grades. ...more

I received an electronic ARC from BooksGoSocial through NetGalley.
This book will appeal to middle grade readers. An adventure story that also helps kids dealing with difficult situations. Enough emotional connections and action to hold a reader's interest.
Fantasy elements combined with real world issues.

Thoroughly fun story about children will enjoy because it is full of action and adventure with a nice mix of fantasy.
The author takes a real life family situation that many families face, but he makes it a whirlwind of fun!

Great book, great for younger readers (middle grades) and look forward to many more by this author!
