    "Fun and Engaging"

    My 4 and 10 year old girls and my 10 year old boy all love this story, which "isn't scary at all." The narrator was the perfect choice, between her British accent (the story takes place in post WWII England), and her willingness to assume the voices of a full spectrum of characters.

    Story
    "A must for young boys with Asthma"

    My 7 yr old ended up in hospital after a chest infection/possible asthma attack. We spent the night there and were given an inhaler to use for a few days.

    Imagine my surprise and delight when the hero of this (randomly) downloaded story has asthma! It features a quite realistic terror related asthma attack, and prominently features an inhaler.

    Oliver (our hero) inherits a huge mansion. His evil cousins find out about his asthma and decide to trigger an attack by hiring some particularly evil and vicious child hating ghosts. They hope this will kill him. There is a mix up at the agency and what Oliver actually gets is a ghostly guardian family who become his best friends.

    The language is quite strong; so not for very young children or nervous types. There is blood, and lots of implied violence. I would however recommend this for any children over the age of 6 who are prone to asthma or breathing problems. It allowed myself and my son to discuss Oliver and his breathing problems, throwing light on how scary or not it can be.
