MARIYAH & ALFIE – WILLOW CLASS
This extraordinary book is scarey and full of action. It has been published by Phillip Pullman an amazing author who has also written His Dark Materials. I would recommend this book to confident readers, aka 10+.
This story is about an apprentice clockmaker named Karl who was picked to make a fIgure for the new clock opening. He had a whole year to complete it. However, he had not done it. Therefore, Karl was very nervous. One day when Fritz, Karl’s friend, is telling a story at the pub about a man called Dr Kalmenius (who is evil and takes dead bodies at night) the exact description of him appears at the door. Then everyone runs away except Karl.
Year 5 have been reading Clockwork for around 4 weeks do not read this if you are in Year 4 as there is a possibility you may read it in Year 5! We recommend it as a 5* for suspense, excitement and adventure. Phillip Pullman is a very clever author as he linked 2, very different, stories in to 1.
