This book is set in England around 1900 and is told through the eyes of a 12 year old chimney sweep named Grubb. Grubb has a terrible life until he stows away in the carriage of Alistair Grim while running from trouble. Through out his journey Grubb encounters all sorts of mystical beings such as fairies, banshees, dragons, and Odditoria.
I really enjoyed this book. It had action, magic, and DRAGONS
(sorry I really like dragons). Also it reminded me of the first few Harry Potter books which gives me hope for the books to follow. Yes, you read that right this will a series. I recommend this to anyone who likes fantasy and magic. If you enjoyed the Harry Potter series then you’re going to enjoy Alistair Grim’s Odditorium as well. I give it 4 out of 5; it’s not a perfect book but it’s up there and I would totally read it again.
