Joseph, The Young Reading Nation (YRN)

The Marvels

I think the book is an excellent addition to the world of literature. It started out as beautiful illustrations which later helped to understand the story. The story line was a maze of twists and turns of new unexpected things. The illustration at the front are found out to be drawn by a man named Billy Marvel. Billy and Albert restored an old dusty house into a 19th century house in spit fields,1990,where a boy (named Joseph) runs away from his boarding school to this house where his uncle lives, Albert. He then finds wonders about the house he never knew about his family which turns out to be a lie. he meets a girl named Frankie and he and she find Albert's story. Later Joseph finds out Frankie's brother helped Albert to make the house but died. Her brother was called Marcus and then Joseph was sent to his old school but after a while Albert dies and Josephs mother finds out what to do with it.
