Kid’s Book Review: Groosham Grange

About the Book and Author

This is the graphic novel edition of Anthony Horowitz’s funny gothic horror story. When David Elliot is expelled from his boring school, his parents send him to Groosham Grange to knock him into shape. But when he arrives at the gothic castle on remote Skrull Island, he discovers Groosham Grange is an unusual sort of school: from signing the register in blood, to the creepy teachers – pallid Mr Kilgraw, Mrs Pedicure bandaged head to toe, hairy Mr Leloup who disappears every full moon… David teams up with fellow pupils Jeffrey and Jill to plan his escape.

Book Review

I would recommend this book for anyone that loves adventures and comics

It’s about a boy that gets expelled from loads of schools but then when a mysterious letter comes through the door he goes on an exiting adventure. It was very intense and a bit scary in parts. So I think it’s for brave 6 year olds and older children.

The best character in the book by far was Jeffrey because he was very very funny.

I would recommend this book for anyone that loves adventures and comics.
The illustrations were extremely helpful to help you understand the storyline of this book.
