Book 18 The Owl Tree - Jenny Nimmo
It was my original intention to read all kinds of books in this 52 books in 52 weeks challenge and so I thought it was about time I read another childrens book. I wouldn't mind actually focusing on childrens books for my own writing and reading this was a gentle reminder that maybe I should go down that route.
The Owl Tree is aimed at primary school ( elementary ?) school children and is a pretty good for that age group. The story is simple but it works. The thing I liked about this book is that there weren't any flying dragons or goblins or wizards but all the fantasy was in the imagination of the main character. Apparently it has won a Smartie Prize and its easy to see why.
