I have included the book trailer below for your enjoyment.
Don't forget to like One Great Book on Facebook and Twitter for all the books that look horrible at first glance but turn out to be page turners.
Title: How to Catch a Bogle
In Victorian London there are bogles who lurk about and consume children … yes you read that right! Birdie is an orphan who is an apprentice to a bogler (a bogle exterminator if you will.) However, when it is discovered that someone is trying to catch and control the bogles in London, and using children as bait, Birdie and her boss Alfred know they must put themselves in harms way to stop this villainy.
The premise of the book seemed a little dark to me so I put off reading this one for a while. However the reviews were glowing so I finally picked it up, and promptly never put it down. Yep, read the whole thing in one sitting. While the idea of monsters that eat children may stop you from getting this book … don’t let it. The book has a definite sense of humor and is written much more to entertain than to scare. The stakes get higher and higher with each bogle encounter and kids will delight in a can’t put down read as the story reaches a wonderful climax.
Fun book for most kids. If they liked The Screaming Staircase this book is a no brainer for a next read. This book would also make a fun read aloud.
Really bad cover art. This one does not say pick me up and read me, so parents, you will have to do that. I know, more work for you!
