As a proud mum of a ferocious reader, I’m always looking for a great children’s books. There’s only one problem. My child, does not like reading about fairies or unicorns, instead she likes the dark stuff! As a huge fan of TV programmes such as Grizzly Tales for Gruesome Kids, my daughter loves reading books along the same vein – basically anything that hints at being frightening without scaring the bejesus out of her!
So when I heard about the Jim Reaper series, about a boy who is the son of the Grim Reaper, I knew it was going to be right up her street. who has made his father’s hit list. Although the premise may sound scary, it’s carried out in a tremendously funny and madcap way, which had my daughter rolling around on her bed giggling!
Jim makes a lovable hero that your child will adore rooting for and even his Grim Reaper Dad is not a bad chap – he’s just a man trying to do his job! Written for children between 7 & 9, I’d highly recommend Jim Reaper: Saving Granny Maggot as a brilliant fast paced adventure story, perfect for children who are intrigued by the dark side!
