Customer Reviews

Tom Fletcher’s easy to slip into and HILARIOUS new world kept me engrossed and when I came out on the other side, I realised I’d fallen in love with this beautifully spun Middle Grade novel and that I would definitely read MORE stories about Lucy Dungston and her lovely little (Creaker filled) town. There were honestly SO many things to love including: 1. THE GORGEOUS ILLUSTRATIONS: Honestly, the illustrations brought this book to LIFE. I loved seeing the Creakers, the messed up town with no adults and all things Lucy and Norman brought to life beside the text. I truly marvelled at all of them. 2. LUCY DUNGSTON THE FEARLESS: About fifty pages into the book, I was WISHING that I’d met Lucy Dungston through the pages of a book when I was her age. She was fearless, super smart and kind. She helped the children around the block, took care of some of them all while being this adorable kid herself, who just wanted her parents back. She was the Nancy Drew and Katniss Everdeen of this hilarious and yet slightly scary novel! 3. THE WOLEB: *The Woleb is the realm below ours where all Creakers and their Creaker families exist. It’s what you might, as a kid, have called Opposite World. Where up is down and right is wrong and adult become children and vice versa. I LOVED the very idea behind The Woleb and the illustrations that brought it out so well. 4. THE CREAKERS: I couldn’t do a review about this book without mentioning how much I fell in love with the slimy, garbage craving Creakers. I know the exact moment I fell in love with them too – when Lucy manages to trap them under a laundry basket and their interactions with her and each other were SO FUNNY. Honestly, The Creakers is the PERFECT book to give children and middle – graders to encourage their love of reading. They’re sure to fall in love with Lucy’s bravery, be slightly scared of The Creakers and also learn to love and be kind. One of the funniest books I’ve read in a while! 4.5 stars!
