Kidview – Wingfeather Saga
by Jessica Ocampos
This story is about three children from a town called Glipwood, that are under the control of the Fangs. Fangs are walking lizards, cruel and have venomous fangs.
The book is categorized in the fiction genre and the main plot is about a family that lives under the control of the Fangs and tries to escape them.
The three main characters are:
Janner – is the oldest child and takes care of his little brother and sister.
Tink – is an adventures, playful, reckless and competitive boy, who loves to eat.
Leeli – is joyful and musical, she plays an instrument called the Whistleharp and loves her dog Nugget. To walk she uses a crutch because she has a crippled leg.
Podo, the grandfather of the children and Nia, the mother of the children; are secondary characters.
This book was captivating and well written, because it was magical, scary and fun. The author was able to keep the suspense till the end and used fun names and words to describe the characters and setting.
I recommend this book for reading level Grade 6 and older.
