The Silver Arrow

We rated this book:


Kate lives a boring life with her annoying little brother Tom and their parents, who mostly just work and stare at their phones all day. But then on her eleventh birthday, her uncle Herbert, whom she had never even met, sends her a giant black steam engine named The Silver Arrow. Despite her uncle Herbert’s warning, off they go on a crazy adventure through forests, under water, and even on the clouds, delivering a ton of talking animals at their stops. They also make friends with a mamba, a heron, a fishing cat, a porcupine, and an adorable baby pangolin.

I loved this book! It is totally amazing, plus it’s one of my new favorite books! I recommend it to older kids and younger kids alike. But I think it would be even more amazing as a read-aloud. Kate, the heroine of the story, does say some things to her parents and Tom that are not very nice, but other than that, the story is amazing. The art and the descriptions are something that every book needs, and this book covers that check box perfectly. But even if it didn’t have that quality, it would still be perfectly inspiring.
