The Golden Acorn, Paperback
3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


When Jack Brenin finds a golden acorn lying in the grass little does he know that it is the beginning of a thrilling and magical adventure.

Just an ordinary boy, Jack has been chosen for a hugely important task, and enters a world he believed only existed in legend.

Full of twists and turns, talking ravens and mischievous Spriggans, The Golden Acorn is a hugely entertaining and exciting tale from a very talented new author.

This wonderful story, the first of a five book series, deservedly won the Brit Writers' Awards 2010 for unpublished writers.

Written for children aged 8-11, the Jack Brenin series has garnered a cult following among its young readers.

The adventure continues in Glasruhen Gate.

Review by

Jack is a likeable character who is afraid but doesn't let the fear stop him from trying new things (like embracing the world of magic). Ms. Cooper has created a fantastical world that feels safe - even though there are scary things, the reader knows that in the end it will all work out. An enjoyable read.
