Tremoundusly fantastico! If you like an action-star-wars-type of book this is the right pick from the shelf. Love it!

Its a good book, but I think its a bit young for a 12 year old like me, I gave it to my 7 year old sister and she could read it to herself. But the book in itself was good the way it was a mystery and I loved the idea of a gruesome granny running a pickle factory!!
You should read this if you are under around 10ish you will find it funny and a good laugh!! :)

The Curse of the Bogle’s Beard is a BRILLIANT book! When his Dad disappears with all the family money, Barnaby is forced to live with his horrible old Granny. Granny lives in a massive revolting mansion where everything is painted purple, the “royal colour”. She is mad about pickling, and has a pickling factory. She will pickle anything.
Barnaby begins to believe that Granny has pickled his Dad. He plans a trip to Granny’s forbidden cellar. At the door he hears footsteps and rushes back to his room to find it wrecked. How could Granny be in two places at once…?
I really enjoyed this page-turning adventure and I would definitely recommend it.

This book was full of adventure and I couldn’t put it down! There are loads of twists and turns and my favourite bit was when they pickled Belchetta Bogle in a vat full of earwax!
