Mick Elliott is one of the funniest Australian authors I have come across. This wonderful children’s book is a great read for both kids and parents.
Leo Lennox and his sister Abbie’s fun and crazy adventures will leave you on the edge of your seat. With unexpected twists and turns Leo and Abbie find themselves in some weird and dangerous situations.
Mick’s descriptive writing and beautiful story telling really draws you in, forcing you to keep reading. There was never a dull moment. I found myself having genuine laugh out loud moments throughout this book.
With plenty of mystery and strange characters, the suspense keeps you turning the page. The fantastic climax of this book was beautifully written. With family secrets revealed and a truly horrible villain, the final few chapters were both endearing and exhilarating. I did not what to put this book down.
It is rare to find a book that is completely entertaining and exciting from start to finish, The Turners is one of these rare books. I am very excited to get my hands on the next book to see what trouble Leo finds himself in.
