The book is about a boy called George who goes to the sweetshop one day and loses his bike. He ends up finding that it was a new girl in his class who stole it. George needed money and that’s when he saw a notice in the shop window for a job at Wormestall Farm. That’s how his adventure began! His adventure included an evil taxidermist called Diamond Pye (the new girl’s stepmother) and some creatures like, Mortifer the basilisk, Dido the Dodo, an ichthyosaur, Grissel the dragon, Tailbiter the Ouroboros and a flying A- called Lo.
The moral of this book is, “Don’t worry about the end because there is really no such thing. The end of one thing you’ll find is always the beginning of another…”
I really enjoyed this book and I loved the glossary which gave me information on all the animals.
I would recommend this book to people aged over 7, including mums and dads because it is funny, interesting and entertaining!
I would give this book 5/5!
