Robyn Silver # 1 : The Midnight Chimes - Paperback
A magical tale for children who like an exciting story with edge.
Life was very ordinary for ten-year-old Robyn Silver.
The often-ignored middle child in a big family, the most excitement she had was the dash to the dinner table to reach the last slice of pizza.
Until... she begins to see creepy creatures around her town - creatures that are invisible to everyone else.
And when her school is forced to decamp to mysterious Grimdean House and she meets its equally mysterious owner, Mr Cryptorum, Robyn finds herself catapulted headfirst into an extraordinary adventure - with more excitement than she could possibly have imagined.
Be careful what you wish for...
- It is high time we had a fantastic new female middle-grade character to root for – Robyn is more than a match for Hamish and his Worldstoppers, and Finn of Darkmouth fame
- Robyn is brave and bold, completely relatable – and with an aspirational magical edge
- A pacy, imaginative, hugely appealing storyline with some SERIOUSLY scary monsters
PRAISE FOR ROBYN SILVER
While the story has a strong female lead, it is a book that will appeal to both genders. ... it really made me laugh - Madge Eekal Reviews
