A Spindlewood Tale Books 1 & 2 Review

I am always on the lookout for books for my 2nd grader to read that are quality material.  I love The Spindlewood Tale Books because I know he is reading good books when he is reading these.  There are 2 books in this series so far.  My son loves them.  These books are geared for grades 3 through 7.  These are books that are a bit dark and spooky.  If your children love that then they will like this.  I enjoyed them too.  The books are very well written and very detailed.  The author of Pip and the Wood Witch Curse and Pip and the Twilight Seekers is Chris Mould.  Chris does an excellent job getting you into the book by painting a great picture in your mind.  My son loves the illustrations included in these books too.

Pip and the Wood Witch Curse starts out with the boy Pip who finds himself trying to be sold off from the people who had taken him in as an orphan.  He is a young and skinny boy, but he escapes.  He soon finds himself in trouble though and finds that he is not in a better situation than before.  He wants to be able to rescue the lost children.  This is a great book for children 8 and up.  I don't want to tell you too much and spoil it for you though!  You will have to read it for yourself to see what happens.

Pip and the Twilight Seekers starts off where the creepy story of Pip and the Wood Witch ends.  This book is just as creepy and dark as the first one.  My son loved the story and the great illustrations in this one too.  This book is all about how Pip is stuck in the horrid city of Hangman's Hallow.  He spends his time trapped in this hideous place.  Jarvis is a super dark character and his goal is to find Pip.  You will have to read this one for yourself to see if they are able to defeat Jarvis!

If you are interested in either of these books you can order them directly from the Albert Whitman website.
