My daughter (a grown up variety) was telling me about a very good friend who she is just moving into share a flat with. She described her – and her family as really loving books. And every Easter instead of buying Easter Eggs her mum buys all the family books…..what a great idea. Now that leads me very nicely into a book that will appeal to all those kids that like a bit of adventure, love animals and are a little on the accident prone side. It is funny, scary with some nice underlying messages that it is OK to get things a bit wrong sometimes.
It is all about some Legends (also known as terrifying, human-eating monsters) have invaded the town of Darkmouth and aim to conquer the world. But don’t panic! The last remaining Legend Hunter – Finn – will protect us. Finn is a twelve-year-old, who loves animals, not a born fighter, but tries really, really hard. We all know that you need more than good intentions to stop a hungry Minotaur. Take a look at the trailer here for Darkmouth.
