A fast-paced read...funny and creepy
Philippa Dowding has cooked up a delicious blend of mystery, humour, and adventure that middle-grade readers are sure to devour!
A tall tale for around the campfire.
Recommended ... Jake and the Giant Hand is a good book for reluctant readers. It is an easy read, with simple language and a similar presentation to a fireside ghost story.
Jake’s adventures and his questions will attract readers interested in ghost stories and mysteries, as well as adventure. The author’s tongue-in-cheek opening and closing will relieve any fears that some of these readers may develop.
