Fire breathing dragon



“The children all LOVE Archie and have created some pictures as we have gone through the second book …

… they are looking forward to book number three!  Is it definitely the last one?  They wanted me to ask if they were being made into films.  I think the mark of a good book is that you can picture it in your head as if it were a film.  Archie definitely falls into that category!  We can just imagine the scene in Quills with the door ray and the box seats and motion potions!

I am always recommending the books to groups on FaceBook!”

‘It kept me guessing and I wanted to keep reading it 10/10.’

William, (age 10) Lovereading4kids

“This is an amazing book about a boy who has just turned 12. One day he receives a book in the post with a set of special instructions.

He has to travel to Oxford where he discovers the magical side of his family he never knew he had. I loved this book as it was packed with magic and it was never boring. I rate this book 10 out of 10 and I am sure everyone else would too.

The language is quite simple but some of the magical creatures names are hard to pronounce. I would highly recommend this book to both boys and girls – especially those who enjoyed ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Charlie Bone’ books. I think children aged 7 – 10 would enjoy reading this book. I am looking forward to reading more adventures about Archie Green.”

“A book full of potions, magic spells, enchanted bookshelves, action and adventure. I couldn’t put it down. One of the best books I have read recently. Fantastic!”

Tomasz, (age 9), Lovereading4kids.

‘This is a book about a boy called Archie Greene who is the first book whisperer (someone who speaks to books) in 400 years. I enjoyed this book, it is exciting.’

Ethan, (age 9) Lovereading4kids

‘I live in Oxford and I wish that I could visit the Museum of Magical Miscellany. I hope that this is the start of a series of books as I would like to read more about Archie Greene and his cousins.’

Isobel, (age 8) Lovereading4kids

‘This book sent tingles of excitement and wonder down my spine. It was intense and thrilling…I couldn’t stop reading! One of the best books I have ever read.’

‘A magical story full of magical creatures, mysteries and adventures. I loved it!’

Evie, (age 9) Lovereading4kids

‘I wouldn’t be surprised if Archie’s adventures make it onto the big screen. I loved it!’

Jake, (age 10) Lovereading4kids

‘A book about magical flying books! I loved this book, such a great idea for a story. Archie is a 12 year old boy with different coloured eyes, and when he uncovers a family secret his adventures begin. Young ‘Harry Potter’ fans would love this book.

Archie Green and the Magician’s Secret is a great book. It reminds me of Harry Potter. ‘
