E For Excellent for ALEX AND THE OTHER!


"This fourth book in the Weird Stories Gone Wrong Series by Philippa Dowding will not disappoint. 

From the book’s first sentence readers will feel like they’ve entered into a ‘conversation’ with the author. The conversation that unfolds about a mysterious green fog, missing piglets and a frightened farmer reads like a cross between delicious gossip and a campfire tale so absurd and intriguing you can’t help but want more. 

With each chapter Dowding develops tension and a strong sense of Alex’s isolation and despair. Readers will no doubt relate to Alex and root for him as he tries to reclaim his life...

... Shawna Daigle’s creepy illustrations punctuate the text and add to the mystery.

RATING: E"
