Charlie Bone and the Beast is a fun and quick read. A few new characters added some fun to the mix with Katya Kettle and Dagbert Endless, whose father is a figure from Cook's past. The interesting addition here are the stone animators and their connection to the past. Jenny Nimmo continues to make fun connections between the characters' ancestors and no matter what there is a balance of good children of the Red King and bad children of the Red King.

The Bloors are still the antithesis to Charlie and his will to do what is right. I would love to see Charlie go more head-to-head with Manfred Bloor, and I would love for Charlie to use his endowment much more than he does as it is such a cool endowment. The contrast bentween Tancred and Dagbert Endless and their shared ancestral endowment was of great interest as was Katya Kettle's shared skills of her descendant, of Feromel the blacksmith.

All in all I think this series is great and the books are just the right length. I just wish they would come out at a faster pace. I can't wait for the next installment. I hope we have a huge showdown between all of the endowed children where the background story is minimal and the exploration of their endowments is at the forefront. Keep the books coming.

I really enjoyed this latest book by jenny nimmo (although I always wonder if her last name is owwin spelled backwards). All of our villains make great showings in this book.Two new villains are introduced, Dagbert Endless whose talent is to drown people and Aunt Venetia's new stepson who has the ability to move stone. They and the rest of the bloor's crew are out to prevent charlie from saving Asa who angered the bloors by changing sides in the last book. Now that the red king's tree and charlie's dad have awakened all craziness is breaking loose. Dagbert is especially interesting as he is developing new powers throughout the book and we see he needs gold sea figurines to control himself, although we don't know why. The book feels as if it is the beginning of a new series of adventures so don't expect all of the new questions to be answered
An altogether delightful book.

Finally, a series to get my 11 year old loving to read! He has read 7 of the books in this series, and will be working on the 8th soon. I only read the first book, and the content was appropriate for his age, but I haven't actually read this one myself. My son calls it a Harry Potter type story.

I love this book series and am sad that I am already getting close to the end!
I originally read this series in Junior High school and am now revisiting these books as an adult. I would recommend this series to anyone!

I purchased this book for my nine year old daughter, so I will let her leave a review from her perspective, since she read the book.

I would describe it as the best book ever it had everything I like suspense,adventure,and trying to figure out what is coming next.

Love this series. Just as good as Harry Potter.
This was another good title in the Charlie Bone series. This is a series for intermediate readers who have exhausted their copies of the Harry Potter Books. Charlie is an "endowed" student at Bloors Academy in England like Harry but it is not magic with everyone having the same powers or degrees of power. All of the children who are endowed are descendants from the Red King but not all of the students at the school are endowed. Each has diffrent powers. Charlie can hear the voices of people in paintings or photographs and can even venture into the picture it's self. Lots of villians and good guys to enjoy.
