The Icicle Illuminarium by N. J. Gemmell
Random House, 2014. ISBN 9780857985675
(Age: 9-13) Highly recommended. The Icicle Illuminarium is entertaining and original. It had me holding my breath before I was halfway through!
It was so good I couldn't stop reading: a real page turner!!
I loved it.
It tells the story of four little Australians whose father went missing (from the Kensington Reptilarium), but has now been found.
Now they keep on hearing stories of their 'supposed to be dead' Mother being alive; so the Caddy kids go on a mission to find her.
What lies ahead no-one knows - they could fall into deadly trap!!
You really need to read it!!
I highly recommend this book for ages 9 - 13.
