A Cage of Roots

A Cage of Roots

Matt Griffin

This is a dark and scary book for children aged ten plus. Children love it, judging by their reviews, and I love it too. It is set in Ireland and will appeal to readers anywhere. It is about love, loyalty, friendship and facing your demons (but is not in the least preachy). The writing is superb. I heartily recommend it.

I really enjoyed this humorous fantasy book, the first in a series of four. There is some great characterisation, brilliant dialogue, and some very funny situations. The author's sense of fun shines through, and it is an enjoyable, light read.
