Book review – Chris Priestley – Maudlin Towers Curse of the Werewolf Boy

Mildew and Sponge attend Maudlin Towers School for the Not Particularly Bright Sons of the Not Especially Wealthy. They hate school and thd horrible teachers and are desperate for some excitement. This comes in the form of the Missing School Spoon and the threat of Christmas being cancelled. The boys become detectives and also uncover ghosts, time travel and other adventures.

Illustrated with Chris Priestley’s own line drawings, Maudlin Towers is a great tale for 8 years plus and the first in a series.

Please note that I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a candid review. Apart from that I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.
