Lucinda's Secret, Hardback Book
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Things at the Grace residence are getting completely out of hand.

As if being attacked by goblins and almost eaten by a bridge troll wasn't enough, now the house boggart, Thimbletack, is out to get Jared.

Simon has a very hungry griffon recuperating in the carriage house, and Mallory is convinced that the only way to stop the madness is to get rid of the Guide.

But fortunately for Jared, it seems that is not an option.

With all kinds of creatures after them, the Guide is the only protection the Grace kids have.

If only they could work out why the faeries are stalking them?

Could it be the Guide that they want? There's only one person who might know the answer - their crazy old Aunt Lucinda.

Review by

Book 3 in the series and the children are finding that the Boggard/Brownie Thimbletack is still annoyed at them, they go to visit their Aunt Lucinda in the asylum and find that she's being sustained by fairy food. The book goes missing and they have to try to find out more about what's going on and why all of fairy want the book.A fun read that's really not taxing. The illustrations are amazing and in some cases hilarious. A series that adults will find depth in and children will enjoy.
