Cool Book of the Week: 'The Little Secret' by Kate Saunders. A library find that both Julia and I read, one after the other. She pronounced this 'one of the best books I've EVER read!'. Adored it so much, she put it in my hands and said that I HAD to read it, so I did. And I can see why she loved it so. The plot, about a girl whose mysterious new best friend (is she magical? is she good or evil? is she a fairy or something else??) takes her on a journey into a hidden world, races along full tilt, and while an adult will see what the major plot twists are about from a few paces back, this is Very Thrilling Fare Indeed for the 8-10 year old set.
