Description

Elsie as mentioned previously is a Matilda for a new generation of readers, she has nothing, no material possessions and no family – but we soon discover that she is the catalyst for change for all of the lives she comes into contact with, sharing with them a heart that is so warm it can even bring a Mammoth back from an icy grave ( with a little bit of creative thinking and a cunning plan!

One thing that annoys me about David Walliams's books is how everybody harps on about him being the new Roald Dahl. When Elsie, an orphan on the streets of Victorian London, hears about the mysterious Ice Monster – a woolly mammoth found at the North Pole – she’s determined to discover more… A chance encounter brings Elsie face to face with the creature, and sparks the adventure of a lifetime – from London to the heart of the Arctic! If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance. It’s humorous too and the illustrations be it on maps, depeicting the Queen, London city, attire worn by people bring that period into life.Now impoverished but free, she is drawn to the wondrous Natural History Museum in South Kensington, and witnesses the grand unveiling of a perfectly preserved woolly mammoth.

The story line was sweet and well thought out, and the pacing was so good that I struggled to put the book down as I constantly wanted to know what was going to happen next. Elsie and The Ice Monster can thaw the coldest of hearts – a true masterpiece from the mind of one of the best story tellers of a generation.All very suitable for the 9+ reader, great for reading to younger children and ideal for older reluctant readers. He's funny and human-not all that happens in the books is happy or sweet but is is HUMAN and FAMILY.
