A MUST READ
this is a great little book ...such an unusual story about a little girl named Feodora who spies on HER oddball neighbours.IT IS VERY FUNNY AND TOLD COMPLETELY IN RHYME ..FABULOUS A MOST HAVE FOR THE HOLIDAYS
This is a wonderful read for both children and adults alike. With a morality to make you sit up and take notice whilst beguiling you with rhyme, this book is clever, witty (and occasionally dark) throughout. Take a journey with Feodora and meet her strange neighbours - you will not regret it! Well done to this talented new author, I am sure I am amongst many who eagerly anticipate another literary offering.
A book children and adults should both read
Folk of Feodora's Lane is a delightful excursion into a fantasy world created by Eliza Keating. We are introduced to twelve extraordinary, yet fallible inhabitants of Feodora's Lane, each delineated delightfully and hilariously in verse vignettes. The quality of the writing never lapses, it maintains its pace, insight and humor throughout. The characterizations represent a variety of enchanting but flawed or fabulous folk, such as Liza Plenty, Ingrid Clawed, Ernest Trotwow and Zac Strummer. It would be futile to quote an outstanding verse or two, because that would mean omitting something, with everything of the same exceptionally high standard. This is a wonderful read for folk of all ages - although written for children - who I am sure will be as entranced and delighted as I was
