review 1: Great read, I loved the setting this book has and the events that took place. I have no idea why it's called 'The Secret Kingdom' though. It wasn't about the kingdom at all, but about a boy with a camel who is constantly on the run from bad guys. :oEverything happened VERY quickl...

review 1: This is the best book in the series. A wonderful climax, with (obviously) Charlie winning. I really like the ending, especially with Charlie's very quick travel to Scarpo. Scarpo always seems so important to me, and I wish we got to know more about Charlie's magical inheritance f...

review 1: Finished this one late this weekend and forgot to post that I'd read it! Regardless of that, this book is a great addition to the continuing story and I'll be sad to read the next book as it's the last of the series. Nimmo has done an amazing job at making an interesting and uniq...

review 1: Review by Shelly - review of the trilogyWow Jenny Nimmo knows how to tell a cracking story. The Secret Kingdom books are my first taste of her novels and I have to say won’t be the last. The trilogy follows Timoken, a young boy who is enchanted by a magical moon spider web cloa...

review 1: This book was recommended to me by my nine year old daughter, Sophia. She had read it last year after receiving it as a prize from a library summer reading program. She has loved it and wanted to share her excitement and enthusiasm for the book with me. How could I say no? It...

review 1: This book tells the origin story of the Red King from the Charlie Bone series. We never learned much about his origins during the Charlie Bone books so this book caught my interest when I first saw it. Unfortunately it didn't hold my interest while I was reading it. I had a ver...

review 1: This was a pretty satisfying conclusion to and interesting, if not especially memorable, series. There were a few editorial and continuity issues with this book: Was Eustacia in top form or not in top form that day? And does it even really matter? And the narrator's voice (I n...

review 1: SLJ review:Gr 5-8-Charlie Bone is once again pitted against Count Harken, aka The Shadow, in Jenny Nimmo's seventh book (Orchard Books, 2008) in the Children of the Red King series. Very little background information is provided, so listeners must be familiar with the previous ti...

review 1: Not the best in the series, but definitely better than Charlie Bone and the Castle of Mirrors. I was disheartened about the several chapters where Charlie has to fill in other characters about what has been happening since they weren't with him when it happened. It almost felt li...

review 1: As the series comes to a head, it continues to entertain, but I continue to feel that so many of these books are coming to an indefinite end. This one in particular ends on a note that feels particularly incomplete. Perhaps the intent was to simply prepare the reader for the de...

review 1: Jenny Nimmo's stories are raw, spontaneous imagination. The storytelling is not seamless, but that is not a flaw. Rather, the imperfections of story and character allow the reader room to wonder and space to enter a rich and often dangerous world--a world, upon further reflection...
