Alice, St Helen and St Katharine
This was one of the best books I’ve ever read.
The plot of this book is great. The author seems in control of the plot. The events of the plot are believable in the book. The book is not a dead end. It’s about a girl called Fidge and when one of her family members has an accident she is flung into a world of the Wimbley woos. The Wimbley woos is a book that her sister Minnie makes her read to her.
The characters are convincing and Fidge develops to like her cousin Graham. Who she thinks is weird. She interacts with Graham and her friends like a normal person. She and her sister have normal sister to sister arguments. We don’t really know where she is from, but I imagine she is from Britain and that she speaks in the way I thought she would. She and Graham are the same in all the way through the book.
The way the author writes is appropriate to the subject and theme the mood is very well created and the mood changes from tension to laughter. It is quite balanced between narrative and dialogue. But in some places the way Minnie and Wed Wabbit speak is a bit confusing because they both don’t pronounce their ‘r’s. the sentences are short in some places and longer and more complicated in others.
Finally, I would rate this book 9/10 because it was such a great book. The plot and style of the book is so good. The description is vivid, and the dialogue is warm. From the cover most people thought it wouldn’t be that good. The only two things that gave it 9/10 were the fact that the dialogue of Minnie and Wed Wabbit was slightly hard to read. And I found it hard to see the Wimbley Woos in my head, so I just thought they were little blobs with arms and legs.
