MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Mold and the Poison Plot: Big-hearted friendships, thrills & spills, smells & spells, plus an action-packed ending! * Peter Bunzl *
A wonderfully pongy adventure championing inclusivity & friendship! * Abi Elphinstone *
This is an exciting fantasy story with an array of wonderful characters, including the inimitable Mold, told in a fresh and distinctive voice by a promising new writer. * Read It Daddy *
Full of ripe smells and perilous thrills, this is an engaging debut. * The Guardian *
The ideas are inspired, the story is gripping and the characters are unique and totally believable * The Bookbag *
The book is well paced, with lots of twists and turns and a showdown at the end which is so epic and tense... It's witty and well-thought out and the use of dialect in the writing would make for an excellent teaching point. * The Teaching Booth *
This is a fantasy story that will appeal to those who don't normally enjoy fantasy. * Parents in Touch *
He is a wonderful creation: a loveable and funny character who takes you with him every step of the way on his big adventure. * Books for Keeps *
Lorraine Gregory creates a fully fleshed-out fantasy world, full of wondrous creatures and horrible humans. The humour is earthy and the action bloody (gruesomely so, at points), and it all combines perfectly in this great read. * BookTrust *

“Inspired by Frankenstein”

Thank you to the publishers for this early review copy!
Having previously read her debut Mold and the Poison Plot I was very keen to see what she wrote next.
This is a story based on Frankenstein, I think Both of... More
