Twelve year old Sophia and her younger brother Mark find a mysterious book at the local library and take it home. At first, it seems like just an ancient collection of stories, but soon, the children will discover that it is a portal to another world, Almation – and before they know it, they are trapped in it. To get back home, Sophia and Mark will have to solve many puzzles, face unexpected dangers and make equally unexpected friends – but maybe even that is not enough…
Full of adventures, challenges and fantastic creatures, the world of Almation will take Sophia and Mark on an exciting journey, and teach them the power of stories.
The Library of Secrets is one of the most well written and well-developed stories I have ever come across, and I genuinely mean this. It is the sad truth that many children books are not written to a high standard, and I understand why some authors may write their children’s book this way because after all, children mostly want a fast-paced story, however, this is not always the best option. The child will most likely enjoy the story however they won’t remember it. Personally, as a mother I look for children books which my children will remember and want to re-read, and The Library of Secrets is that book as The Library of Secrets is an expertly written children’s book with a story that is well developed and memorable and a story that I guarantee children with love thanks to its fast-paced but engaging narrative and the sensational story that unfolds.
The Library of Secrets is an adorable but exciting children’s book that is the perfect blend of fantasy and adventure and will take the reader of the story into a magical world. The reader in The Library of Secrets will be introduced to twelve-year-old Sophia, and along with her brother, she finds a mysterious looking book which she decides to take home from the library and that is where our journey begins book lovers! Because although the book may seem normal, it is instead magical and soon Sophia and Mark will be transported into a magical world known as Almation. It is here in this strange and new world that they will go on an adventure full of ups and downs in order to get home and this book lovers is the premise of the incredible The Library of Secrets!
The story of The Library of Secrets is a thrilling one thanks to the enthralling and action-packed moments as well as the unpredictable nature of the book that will have the readers turning the pages with haste from beginning to end. I love children books that involve a journey because usually in these stories the character develops and grows as they overcome events and battles which in turn adds to the development of the character and explores life lessons throughout the book and that is most certainly the case with The Library of Secrets. What I loved most about The Library of Secrets is that the reader is taken on an adventure that is continuously evolving and changing.
Zoe Penn is an incredible writer who knows how to capture young readers attention from the start. Penn does this by placing the reader in the thick of the drama straight away with no long build up. The reader will be thrust into the story, and because the reader experiences this so fast they will be hooked and captivated to read until the very end. Penn manages to ensure that her readers are entertained from beginning to end, and she does this by weaving twists and turns throughout her book as well as many jaw-dropping moments that will fascinate as well as excite young readers.
Zoe Penn is an incredibly talented author who clearly knows how to write unique but engaging stories. It was evident to me from the start that Penn is a passionate writer who surely loves entertaining young readers with her literature and putting a smile on children’s faces which is what I adore so much! Overall The Library of Secrets is a marvelous, stellar and supreme children’s book that will entertain, delight as well as charm young readers and so I, of course, have to award this book five stars!
