Tom’s Midnight Garden by Philippa Pearce

Age: 8+

Rating: ****

Tom has to go away to his aunt and uncle’s house because his brother has measles. He discovers the Midnight Garden and finds a new friend….but who is she really?

The ending is really intriguing and makes me want to find out more. The start however is slightly confusing but you finally pick it up.

When Mrs Bartholomew asked to speak to Tom you think something bad might happen and my heart was thumping loudly!

I loved this book and couldn’t put it down.
