Holly Webb

8 Reviews

Rated 0

Rose, For National Curriculum Key Stage 3, Interest age: from c 9 years, Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Children's Fiction, Adventure stories (Children's / Teenage), Fantasy & magical realism (Children's / Teenage)

The first book in an exciting, get-lost-in-the-world series about orphans, alchemy, magical powers and sinister child-catchers... Perfect for the girl reader who loves brilliant, absorbing books to collect and treasure.

The grand residence of the famous alchemist, Mr Fountain, is a world away from the dark orphanage Rose has left behind. For the house is positively overflowing with sparkling magic - she can feel it. And it's not long before Rose realises that maybe, just maybe, she has a little bit of magic in her, too...

If you love Araminta Spook, Harry Potter and Lemony Snickett, you'll love the ROSE books!
