Win! New kid's book that adults will love to read too! The Fallen by Charlie Higson

WIN!  A brilliant addition to your children's bookcase with Tidy Book's children's book review and competition.

It's a sign that your kids are growing up; when you start pinching their books to read for yourself.   And so it was the case with Charlie Higson's 'The Fallen'; his post-apocalypse zombie novel that the 9 year old in our house devoured hungrily.  The Fallen is the fifth book in Higson's series for children aged 10+ and is one the grown-ups will want to read under the duvet too.

You can win a copy of Charlie Higson's 'The Fallen' for your child - or yourself!  Just tell us who is your all-time scariest fictional monster.  Leave your answer in the comments below.

 

the fallen

 

Set in London, a year after the disaster sickness which rotted the grown-ups' brains and bodies and now they have become flesh-eating zombies.  Kids aged under 14 didn't catch the sickness, and have spent the last year surviving; some in the Natural History Museum where they've managed to create a kind of safe-ish normality, and started to look for a cure for the sickness.  That is, until they realise their haven is not as safe as they thought.

The 9 year old loved the action in this book, and now rates it in his top 5 books of all time.  Both of us found it hard to put down; the suspense and surprises keep you turning pages, hoping that the 'sickos' won't spring out of the darkness.  My 9 year old enjoyed the battling along with buckets of comic-book blood, gore and pus.   It's not just battles with zombies however; the kids are struggling to survive, but try to look after each other and organise their new world - some of which I found properly terrifying.   The black edges of the pages give the book a great, scary feel.

If your older child has enjoyed the adventures and supernatural beings in Lord of the Rings, the battles in Star Wars and the general gore in Horrible Histories, then give The Fallen a go - and there's a good chance you'll be sneaking reads of it too!
