Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy
Who doesn’t like museums and all of the adventures that can happen there? Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy is about a museum filled with imagination, an evil Snow Queen, a boy whose purpose is to destroy the Queen, but is locked away in the museum, and a girl named Ophelia, who finds the boy in the museum and is asked to save them all. She is not your usual main character. For me, she was very easy to relate too for the most part. She loves science, has her own style, and has her own personal problems, like a dad who doesn’t listen, asthma, is bullied, and her mom recently died. So, when she is asked to help, she is not really sure of herself and it takes up until the end before she sees what she is capable of.
This book was a good chapter book and had a story line easy to like and filled with a lot of creativity. The ending almost seems like it could continue on to more books, which is always a good thing with kids’ books, as I know I like to read series. I easily recommend this book for both boys and girls!
