The Other Alice by Michelle Harrison 📚 a book review & competition! 💙

July 25, 2016

There are so many books for children on the market today it is sometimes difficult to choose which is suitable for our younger ones. After the age of say 7-8 years old girls and boys are no longer happy to read ‘children’ books but instead need books which more words, with more of a storyline. They can now read so need further stimulation to keep their ever growing, ever exploring minds occupied.

After a certain age boys and girls want enticing storylines and even a bit of magic thrown in.

The Book –


‘The Other Alice’ by Michelle Harrison is exactly that type of book. The ‘suitable’ type of book those aged over 9years old will love to devour.

A twisting tale of magic, riddles and the power of imagination from the award winning author of The Thirteen Treasures sequence.

When Midge’s sister Alice goes missing and a talking cat appears in her bedroom. Midge realises that Alice’s stories contain the clues he needs. But every tale has its villains and now that they are leaping off the page, Midge and two new friends must find Alice and work out how this story ends. Before a more sinister finale threatens them all…

Verdict –

A wonderful story of magical proportions which will have your pre teens bewitched and amazed.

I read this book myself to review it for you all as I’m still a little girl at heart.

It is a wonderful concept of a book within a book, a story within a story. The characters are magical – Tabitha the talking cat, Piper and Gypsy, all out looking for Alice and trying to finish the tale she has created.

If you have children who believe in magic, this story is bound to leave them spellbound. A perfect book to enjoy over the summer holidays and transport your younger ones on an adventure they won’t forget!

The Other Alice will be available to purchase on July 28th 2016 from Amazon UK and all major bookshops. It is available to preorder on Amazon UK now.
