    " I thought this book was very captivating and intriguing as it was focused around David Eliot's disappointing schooling experiences that led him to a paranormal world. After getting expelled for poor conduct he is offered a place at Groosham Grange, however this proposal was not by coincidence. On route to his new school, he befriends Jill and Jeffrey and through their discussion it seems that they had each received a letter with differing information to portray this school ideally for their parents. The experience of getting to Groosham Grange was a terrifying and eye opening journey for each child. Upon arrival, they had a pact made to stick together in order to escape. Their fears increased rapidly when they met their teachers, none of which seemed ordinary and after different discoveries their alarm escalated that things were not normal in the school. Through several incidents, findings, ease droppings, Jill and David plotted their escape for help as they knew they were in a place where everything was abnormal. However, on all attempts they failed and on their 13th birthdays, they were converted to the magical side at Groosham Grange. This book would be best suited to children age nine and up. It uses simple and informative language which engages the reader and sets the finish of each chapter with the suspense of wanting to continue. It would be a very appropriate book to aid in creative writing as the story is very imaginative through unusual events and unique characters. It is based around a school which will allow children to relate to it easily, therefore engaging their attention. I find that portraying the main friendship of the book as male/female is excellent to focus in on gender dimensions as primary school children are often male versus female but this book challenges that idealogy.

    " This is a great little story. If you are a Harry Potter fan, you should definitely read this book. I think you'd be surprised to find that Rowling stole a lot of her ideas from this book, which was written 10 years before The Sorcerer's Stone. "

    " This book is great fun. It has every horror cliche and some off kilter nods to Harry Potter. "

    " Odd jokes, with parents being skewered by kitchen knives as no big deal and the main character just caves at the end and joins the "bad guys". Not sure what kind of lesson this is supposed to give but I wasn't impressed. I expected really spooky and got campy instead. "
