Two Fantasy Reviews by Two Young Reviewers
For today’s blog we have two very very different Fantasy books being reviewed by two of our young reviewers, The Gift and The Hidden Oracle. They are both the first book in a series and so there should be many birthday’s and Christmas presents covered if your young readers like them as much as our two do.

(Reviewed by Sam S Aged 10)
This is a book about a Greek god who gets cast down to earth in the form of a gawky teen called Lester Papadopulos merely because Zues had to find someone to blame for the Giant War. Lester has a quest to find a Hidden Oracle, with the help of a new Demigod called Meg Macafree and the famous Percy Jackson. But as the enemy the roman tribunal advances on the Oracle – CAN APOLLO SURVIVE ?
I recommend this book for ages 8-17 or older. I liked this book because it was full of fun and adventure and I liked the characters, especially Lester because who does not like a god who is full of himself who is turned into a gawky, acned teen.
P.S I have read the second book and don’t think it was as good as the first.
