When Timothy was left on the doorstep of Dreams and Hope Orphanage, a young baby in a wooden box, no one could imagine that 12 years on he would go on an adventure that would change so many lives.
Even though Timothy was abandoned and lived as an orphan, he had a good life, cuddles when he wanted and the most amazing pudding. He was growing up to be an amazing young man and even when events caused his life to worsen, he still was a caring child. However, the story was also about the other characters all had their own story to tell and the little details like how the children got their names, made this story more interesting. As the story progressed so did Timothy’s adventure, with the help of his new friends, he finds out more of his past and the true meaning of friendship. But where he found love, he also found danger as he was a wanted boy.
This book is perfect for any age, the fantasy element will capture children and adult’s imagination. The action is family friendly making this a book that you can read to your little ones. Once you start this book you will not want to put it down, as you want to know what happens to Timothy. The writing style was descriptive and when Timothy arrived at the Marzipan mountain, you could just picture him looking at in awe. Throughout the book I was imaging the characters voices especially when Timothy met Edwin and Leopold. There are some great comedy moments which children and adult will enjoy, and I did have a few laughs to myself. Whilst I have read some of this author’s work before and saw the great reviews for this book, I was still pleasantly surprised, how good it was and that is was for any age group If you are looking for a fun, adventurous read then this is the book for you, I hope there will be more of Timothy’s adventures
