Charlie Bone and the Red Knight Book Review

Charlie Bone and the Red Knight Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 02, 2009
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

Kidzworld takes a look at the 8th and final book in Jenny Nimmo’s amazing Charlie Bone series—Charlie Bone and the Red Knight.

Charlie Bone and the Red Knight Rating: 5

Author: Jenny Nimmo

More than seven years have come and gone since Midnight for Charlie Bone was released in April of 2002. Now the creator of it all, Jenny Nimmo, is closing the book on Charlie and his gifted friends. But not without leaving readers with a solid, climactic finish that ties up all the loose ends.

Trouble in Town

When we last saw Charlie, his parents had left on a sailing vacation, the beloved Pets’ Café was shutting down, Charlie's friend Tancred was believed to be dead, and his other friend Billy was lost 900 years in the past. Charlie’s father hid a will naming little Billy Raven the next in line to inherit Bloor’s Academy. But the evil Bloor family will stop at nothing to find the will and destroy it.

Fight to the Finish

Many battles are fought in this conclusion—a father-son fight to the death, a battle between the past and present, and a city-wide brawl in which good and evil go head to head. And best of all, the story ends with a surprising twist that is sure to satisfy readers.

The Bottom Line

Charlie Bone and the Red Knight is a great conclusion to the eight-book Charlie Bone series. If you haven’t experienced the magic and adventure of Charlie Bone, start the series from book one. Charlie Bone is similar to Harry Potter.—a big old school where children with powers go to advance their abilities, a main character with messy brown hair, and a pack of villains, some more ruthless than others. But it’s those similarities along with all the differences that make Charlie Bone a fresh and exciting read.

God moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform; He plants his footsteps in the sea, And rides upon the storm. Deep in unfathomable mines Of never-failing skill, He treasures up his bright designs, And works his sov’reign will. Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take, The clouds ye so much dread Are big with mercy, and shall break In blessings on your head. Judge not the Lord by feeble sense, But trust him for his grace; Behind a frowning providence He hides a smiling face. His purposes will ripen fast, Unfolding ev’ry hour; The bud may have a bitter taste, But sweet will be the flow’r. Blind unbelief is sure to err, And scan his work in vain; God is his own interpreter, And he will make it plain.
