    • Born and raised in London, i was never aware of so many tunnels I can see my 10 yr old grandson loving this book and capturing his imagination A very enjoyable book and although aimed at 11 yrs and above, i am sure that this story will be a fun read for many adults too My thanks to Netgalley and the Publishers for my copy This is my honest review.

    • Read with my 11 year old daughter Her review Me and my mum have loved this book, we have read it aloud to each other each night and we knew in the first few pages it would be a book we would both enjoy.The Haven is a place for kids, run by kids and these kids are good, they want to help other children like them This book has a lot in common with Oliver Twist but at the same time is completely different The biggest similarity are the names, Ollie and Dodge, Fagin, Sikes and Bullseye all appe Read [...]
