Summary:

 

For ages 9-12

A hidden attic. A classic story. A very unexpected twist. Twin twelve-year-old bookworms Ophelia and Linus Easterday discover a hidden attic that once belonged to a mad scientist. While relaxing in the attic and enjoying her latest book, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Ophelia dozes off, and within moments finds herself facing a fully alive and completely bewildered Quasimodo. Ophelia and Linus team up with a clever neighbor, a hippy priest, and a college custodian, learning Quasimodo’s story while searching for some way to get him back home-if he can survive long enough in the modern world.

My Thoughts:

This is a very nice kids book which is a quick read,  I read in one sitting. Which says to me that a younger reader should also be able to get through the book quickly enough not to loose interest in it. There was plenty of humor in the book, which is also another good reason why the younger reader will enjoy the book. This book also brings up the story of Quasimodo in a new and interesting way. This book is for sure a must read!
