You know those chapter books that you pick up for just a minute, intending a quick skim? I defy anyone with a sense of humour to put this book down.
From the beginning where I actually thought I felt my own reptilian tail growing, to my hysteria as the hero-tuurned-komodo tried to assuage his hunger on his classmates and perhaps the school librarian, through to increasing plot twists and gags involving an attack of Vipermen, surfing on sharks, and more shapeshifting and hair-raising adventures than you could ever believe would fit between two book covers, I was riveted by The Turners and I know kids will be too.
The author's knowledge of what tweens find funny and interesting clearly shines through in this book. The dialogue flows easily and the plot develops at a rolling pace Recommended - Magpies magazine. The first book in a series, this will be enjoyed by a wide variety of readers.
The plot and dialogue are strong and well worked, the story original and funny. The topic enables many avenues for humour and Mick Elliott takes advantage of these in an effective manner. The banter between the siblings is very funny. Elliot has cleverly written of a topic that will appeal to a young audience, while at the same time sustaining an independent reader's attention.
This book will make a brilliant read aloud. Highly recommended. I thought this book was really exciting because there were always shape-shifters and different surprises just around the corner. Mick Elliott has a great imagination and I would like to read more of his books. For too long, there has been a hole in the children's book market - where are the novels about genetically modified hamsters?
About villains who are half man, half snake? A how-to on handling the awkwardness that comes with shape shifting in the middle of your school library? Never fear, because Mick Elliott and The Turners are here This is a fantastic series for hesitant readers. It can be challenging to keep kids, especially boys, engrossed in a. It's funny, in a way that will make adults smile too,.
Very Good Good.
