    This is an enormously entertaining Victorian mystery thriller for upper primary aged readers Girls may like it , simply due to the heroine being a girl, and one of the supporting characters Gert whom I LOVED also being a girl But there s lots to enjoy for boys as well monsters, magic, trickery, acrobatics, and action And the other main supporting character is a boy, whom I look forward to seeing again in the second book, in his new life Like most first in a series books, there s a This is an enormously entertaining Victorian mystery thriller for upper primary aged readers Girls may like it , simply due to the heroine being a girl, and one of the supporting characters Gert whom I LOVED also being a girl But there s lots to enjoy for boys as well monsters, magic, trickery, acrobatics, and action And the other main supporting character is a boy, whom I look forward to seeing again in the second book, in his new life Like most first in a series books, there s a bit of work that necessarily goes into setting up the characters and their environment By the time the second book comes along, we will be raring to go, already knowing Stella who is deftly resourceful and quietly brave, Gert who is a powerhouse of female humour and strength, and Ben with his mysterious past and exciting future Mr Capelli and his fantastic team of cats are a delight The period details are engaging, neverso than when Jude Rossell settles down to really describe a scene in depth, such as the embroidery sewing scene, which put me in mind of one of my favourite books, Elizabeth Goudge s The Little White Horse It s in these moments that we really get to feel part of the story, and feel as though we are in the heroine s skin But there s a further pull with this delightful book, and the reason I took several days to read it, instead of one or two nights the design and illustration of the book, which caused me to stop and linger for many minutes at every full page illustration Jude Rossell has really hit her stride with this project, which melds her natural ability to render careful detail, with an Ardizzone like use of light and shadow There s nothing I lovethan an illustrated scene in a children s book where not all is immediately apparent we have the pleasure of delving into the page and using both our eyes and our imagination to make out what is happening in the shadows, while the atmosphere of light and shade affects us as viewersthan any other illustrative tool It s almost as evocative as an aroma Counterbalancing these moody full page illustrations are many small illustrations in the margins, and these are light and clear, depicting the paraphernalia of the Victorian era The whole book is printed in dark blue ink on quality cream paper stock Hardback, with a sumptuous cover and blue satin ribbon for marking your page It s a book I enjoyed holding as an adult but would have been in raptures over as a child

    In the Hotel Majestic, high above the town of Withering by Sea, Stella Montgomery leads a miserable life with her three horrid aunts Condolence, Temperance, and Deliverence When she should be spending her days learning pianoforte and French Conversation for Young Ladies, Stella prefers to be exploring or reading from her most prized possession an old battered atlas of the world, and so she often finds herself in trouble with her aunts But no amount of trouble compares to that which she find In the Hotel Majestic, high above the town of Withering by Sea, Stella Montgomery leads a miserable life with her three horrid aunts Condolence, Temperance, and Deliverence When she should be spending her days learning pianoforte and French Conversation for Young Ladies, Stella prefers to be exploring or reading from her most prized possession an old battered atlas of the world, and so she often finds herself in trouble with her aunts But no amount of trouble compares to that which she finds herself in on the night that thieves break into the hotel And it turns out that they re looking for something that she s takenBut the trouble doesn t end there It turns out that the aunts have been hiding something from Stella Something about exactly who or what she is Withering by Sea is a light fantasy about a young girl who finds herself in a whole world of trouble as a result of her boundless curiousity Knowing this novel was going to be filled with mystery, I was expecting it to have a bit of a detective y Nancy Drew feel to it It turns out it s not that sort of mystery at all And I ain t even mad.This was a really fun read filled with adventure, magic, and friendship, and I often had trouble putting it down It was exactly the sort of book I needed to help me unwind after the stressful Christmas rush at work.If you enjoyed A Series of Unfortunate Events, I feel you might get a bit of a kick out of this one

    We begin with Stella, hiding behind some ferns in the conservatory She is studying an atlas, her most prized possession Within its pages, are hopes and dreams, that Stella may one day escape her horrid aunts and go on an adventure When poor Mr Filbert, an elderly gentleman staying at the Hotel Majestic, scurries in and hides a tiny package under a fern, Stella has no idea that adventure has just found her She retrieves the package, but is somewhat perplexed It is just a tiny bottle, but wit We begin with Stella, hiding behind some ferns in the conservatory She is studying an atlas, her most prized possession Within its pages, are hopes and dreams, that Stella may one day escape her horrid aunts and go on an adventure When poor Mr Filbert, an elderly gentleman staying at the Hotel Majestic, scurries in and hides a tiny package under a fern, Stella has no idea that adventure has just found her She retrieves the package, but is somewhat perplexed It is just a tiny bottle, but within the bottle, something lurks Later that night, Stella finds herself the only resident awake in the whole Hotel Majestic It is then that she witnesses a most heinous crime The perpetrator of the crime and his men, will do anything to find the package, including kidnapping Stella and forcing a young boy to scry for its location In a sometimes nail biting adventure, Stella must defeat the villain and the evil that lurks in the bottle, rescue her new found friends, and find a way home A tall order for a young girl, but Stella is not just any young girl She is a mystery herself I really enjoyed Withering by Sea The Victorian setting was rich, drawing you deep into Stella s unhappy life with her absurd aunts There is a colourful cast of characters to enjoy along the way and the scenes in the theatre were delightful The illustrations were enchanting, and I found myself wishing forand , with every new page The mystery of Stella s origins is left open, which I hope will be resolved in further books to come.There were some dark and creepy moments, so for kids who love a mystery that will occasionally make the hairs on your arms stand up, this will be a winner I believe this would suit confident readers aged 9 12

    I really dislike giving books low ratings, but I couldn t justify giving Withering by Sea three stars It s not that the writing is terrible or that the characters are horribly flat It s just rather dull Nothing much happens in Withering By Sea and I almost felt like I was Withering By Sea while I read it I kept wondering when the plot was going to take off, but it never did Even scenes and plot points that should have been exciting or slightly frightening weren t It s one that I found myse I really dislike giving books low ratings, but I couldn t justify giving Withering by Sea three stars It s not that the writing is terrible or that the characters are horribly flat It s just rather dull Nothing much happens in Withering By Sea and I almost felt like I was Withering By Sea while I read it I kept wondering when the plot was going to take off, but it never did Even scenes and plot points that should have been exciting or slightly frightening weren t It s one that I found myself glad to finish, unfortunately
