Review: I really enjoyed this brilliant funny book. I am so glad I discovered Kita Mitchell's books. Its that great feeling when you find a new author. My kids loved this as well and kept on reading it on their own even though they were only supposed to read with me at bedtime.

Review: George feels he's pretty average when compared to his sister Jess- who is a champion swimmer and brilliant at everything. But then George inherits Hogweed Hall - a mansion full of fascinating tenants and secrets. George finds out he's not as average as he thought and maybe Jess doesn't have it as easy as he thought. We really enjoyed this story though at the beginning George is a little annoying as he does feel somewhat sorry for himself and is quite contemptuous of other people. Though perhaps that is realistic for a younger sibling. I liked how the sibling relationship developed over the course of the book and even though they were both envious of each other, they protected and defended each other as well. The mystery is written well and whilst the fantastic elements of the story are outlandish they are believable within the world of the story. My one gripe (and I know no one else will care about this) is that George uses a parachute on page 181 and after the cord is pulled he describes it as follows - "There was a jolt, and I shot up and up and up." But you don't shoot upwards when the parachute opens, what happens is your descent slows. People think you shoot up because the person is usually being filmed by someone else who is still in freefall. I think I learnt this on QI. Apart from the above quibble the story is great, full of interesting and quirky characters, adventure, mystery and is well-written in an easy to read and fast-paced style. There are pirates and "chickens" and it's a story you can read again to pick up on clues you might have missed the first time round.
