A fun little book that got me reading again!
TL;DR – The story of two children (and a duck, a rooster and a lamb) taking to the skies.
RAGDOLL RATING: 5/5 BUTTONS
What I thought:
I spent a whole week completely unable to read anything for more than a minute until one evening I picked this book off my shelf and just read. It came easily.
The book follows Magpie, child thief turned aviator. After a series of accidents, Magpie finds herself in the employ of the Montgolfier family, who happen to be attempting to achieve the first powered flight by use of a hot air balloon. What follows is a tale of adventure, discovery and excitement.
I loved this book. I always say that age ratings in books aren’t good for much. Just because you’re older (and in my case WAY older) than the age range for a book doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it and get a lot out of reading it. Reading should be for fun, and that’s what this book is. Fun. It’s a well written easy read, with lovable characters and an exciting plot.
