Book View: The Spindlers – The Book Monsters
Oliver is proving as adept with middle-grade adventures as she has with young adult novels. Crafted in the same spirit as Lewis Carroll's Alice, L. Frank Baum's Dorothy and Neil Gaiman's Coraline, Oliver's Liza is a plucky young heroine who's willing to face a host of creepy creatures in an alternately whimsical and terrifying underworld, all to save her younger brother.
Liza isn't fearless, but she's purposeful; she knows that if she doesn't get to Patrick, he will be lost to her -- and her parents -- forever. It's hard not to root for a sister who's so dedicated to her pesky little brother. A tale of friendship and family, of finding your strength and summoning a courage you didn't know you possessed, The Spindlers is an intricately woven adventure that parents and kids will enjoy reading together. Families can talk about the fantasy genre and how Lauren Oliver's world of Below compares to other storybook lands.
