Abby from Year 8, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

This book is about a boy called Tom Trueheart. He comes from
an adventuring family and he goes to find his father, Big Jack
who is lost in the land of myths and legends with an evil man
called Ormestone.

The opening is good because you know its going to be a sort of
fairytale when it starts with 'Once upon a time....'

The story is about Tom having to fight mythical monsters to
find his Dad. I didn't find any of it disapointing. I would
rate this book 9.5 out of ten because it got a bit boring once.

Daisey from Year 7, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

The book was interesting. It is not what I would normally read
so I did not get as stuck in as i would normally but if this
was your type I think you could read it over and over again.
My favourite Character was Jollity she is a loyal bird and is
unique. I enjoyed the story it was good. I'd read it again.

Gabrielle from Year 7, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

I partly like this book but parts I dont like because I dont
like myths and legends. In the book Tom really wants to rescue
his dad Jack the giant killer. He is trapped by the evil
Ormestone. I think Tom is really brave. Braver than a hero. Can
Tom beat the nose dragon, the cyclops and the hungry mintour
waiting in the labyrinth? I think this book is for people who
like adventurous things and who like myths and legends.

David from Year 6, St Peter's Catholic Primary School:

I really enjoyed reading this book. There is good use of
punctuation and is an excellent adventure book. I liked the bit
where Tom Trueheart followed clues from his father, Big Jack
the Giant Killer, who had been captured by the evil Ormestone.
Will Tom defeat the Norse Dagon? Will he scare the Cyclops? And
whose side is Rumplestiltskin REALLY on? Read this book to find
out...

kyle from Year 6, Montagu Academy:

This is my favourite book as it is a adventure and myth book
and those are my favourite books and my favourite part is when
tom has to battle the minator and decapitates it. My least
favourite part is when big jack dies. My least favourite
charecter is oremstone as he is very ignorant and repulsive.

Daneka from Year 6, Hayfield Lane Primary School:

This book is about a boy called Tom Trueheart. He comes from an
family who is a adventuring group and he is determined to
rescue his father, Big Jack who is lost in the land of myths
and legends with an evil villan called Ormestone.

Tom is as brave as any hero, but can he overcome such a terrors
as a ferocious Nose dragon, an angry Cyclops and - worst of all
- the hungry Minotaur waiting in the centre of the
labyrinth?????????????????????????????????

The opening is alright because you know its going to be a
fairytale when it starts with 'Once upon a time....' it
make me read on a lot quick then normal.

I didn't find any of it disapointing however, i did like it
and I would this book 10 out of 10 because it was the best
adventurous book I HAVE EVER READ.I AM reading it
AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Clayton from Year 10, Ridgewood School:

I found this book interesting and ingenius. Basing his story
around the usual nursery thymes and myths and ledgends, Ian
Beck has made a superb character around the childish things
that, to the older ages, seem so boring, into a massive story
that all can enjoy! His descriptions are outstanding as each
character has that little bit missing which allows the reader
to fill in those gaps with your own personal choices.
Definitely deserved to be on the shortlist.

The book was interesting. It is not what I would normally read.
I liked Tom Trueheart because its about adventure but I think
that it went on for forever. At some points in the story it got
boring especially in the midddle but I still enjoyed it. My
favorite character was Tom Trueheart he had a good part in the
story. I think that this book is for older people.
