I couldn’t wait to read this as I thoroughly enjoyed The Hatmakers. It has already been a firm favourite having been read twice since I bought it into school in September.
I literally can’t wait for the next one.

Another story featuring Cordelia Hatmaker. A great many thanks to Tamzin Merchant for creating this wonderful character. I absolutely loved this and I hope others do to

Be shocked by a book full of magic and danger! Cordelia has been given a map by her long-lost father. When she figures out where the map leads to, she figures out that as well as being a haymaker, she is also a mapmaker! It is her duty to protect the hidden magical places. But an evil person is destroying them to make them leechgldass, something that can kill you. He poisons most of the makers and the only thing that can cure them is a magical tree. All the maker children who have not been poisoned have to work together to stop the evil person.

The main characters of this book are Cordelia and Sam - they are both sisters and haymakers and Goose - a bookmaker. This book is set on a lovely, starry night on a London road.

If you find most books boring, this one will catch your attention because it has lots of exciting adventure, mystery and joy in it.

This time, my favourite character was the mysterious Winifred Witloof I would also recommend this wonderfully written sequel to another person!

I really enjoyed The Hatmakers, and was eager to see if the sequel measured up. It definitely did - I loved the humour and quirkiness of the storytelling, and the uniqueness of the magic that is so neatly woven through the plot. There's a great 'heart' at the centre of this story, and a cast of interesting and likeable characters. I reserve 5 star reviews for the books that I can't put down, otherwise this would be up there!
