This year, during BBNYA, we had so many great books. It was hard to choose a favorite among the many that we read. But Toby and the Silver Blood Witches was over the top fantastic! I loved it!

Perfect for younger readers, and younger at-heart readers, this is a story that will resonate for all.

Toby and the Silver Blood Witches Blurb:

A sinister plot. A secret city in the sky. A boy with an impossible choice.

Twelve-year-old Toby has little time for friends or football since his mum fell ill. All he wants is to stay at home and keep an eye on her.

But mysterious things are happening beyond his garden hedge. And who is the strange woman in his attic with her clumsy magic and bothersome bat?

Entangled in adventure, Toby must embark on a dangerous mission. A girl’s life is at stake and time is running out.

My Review:

Oh my, what a fantastic read! Toby is a young boy, who is taking care of his mother, who suffers from MS. As a carer, he doesn’t have many friends, and spends most of his time at home. But things change when a witch crashes into his attic – and Toby is off on the adventure of a lifetime!

This was so much fun, and a great read overall. It was one of those books that pulls you in and refuses to let you stop until you finish the last page. Get your kids reading this summer, and share an adventure that they will not soon forget.
