Thomas Taylor's MALAMANDER

Updated: Aug 28, 2019

Reading Age Level: 9-12 Rating: Mystery, monsters, scary scenes

The Grand Nautilis Hotel is situated in the seaside town of Eerie-on-Sea, a lovely place to be in summer but with a slightly more sinister atmosphere once the tourist’s have left and the cold weather sets in. Herbie Lemon is very proud of his job as the hotel’s youngest ever Lost-and-Founder so when Violet climbs through his window one night begging for help to find her lost parents he reluctantly agrees to do what he does best. Little does Herbie realise this simple act is about to catapult him into a creepy adventure full of unusual objects, a man with a hook for a hand, secrets, suspicion and strange behaviour that may just bring them face to face with the town’s legendary monster - the Malamander.

Deliciously creepy and impossible to put down we know Malamader is going to be one of the best kids books of 2019! Read it if you dare!
