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.
