The Uncommoners: The Crooked Sixpence is fantastic story about a boy called Sebastian and his sister Ivy. They find a different world where everything is not quite how it seems: flying carpets, invisibility candles, people who wear togas with top hats and a variety of dangerous, magical beasts.
This book will appeal to both readers who like detective stories, as Sebastian and Ivy try to discover why their parents have disappeared, and Harry Potter lovers as it is full of magic and mystery.
I couldn’t put this down! I would rate this book 5 stars.
