The Silver Trumpet


"You have to go away. You aren't safe here"


When 11-year-old Penelope Oaks moves into a new house, she receives a series of mysterious notes. Who is sending them – and why? How do the messages keep appearing in her room when there's nobody there?


Finding out takes her on an incredible journey, facing giant snakes, fiendish magical devices and the wickedest witch who ever lived, in a race to save the world – armed with nothing more than a skipping rope and a pair of secateurs.


A children's book originally written to get my daughter interested in reading. It's fast paced and written in short chunks for guided reading – though it is a long book (300 pages). It's six weeks of bed-time reading
