The Astonishing Chronicles of Oscar from Elsewhere by Jaclyn Moriarty and Illustrated by Kelly Canby- Our Review
‘The Astonishing Chronicles of Oscar from Elsewhere’ by Jaclyn Moriarty is the fourth book in a series for middle years readers. The books can be read as a standalone novel or in any order, but beware you will have to read them all… you will not be able to stop at just one. Fingers crossed for a fifth book in the series!
This book tells the outstanding story of Oscar and his legion of friends and foes told over a week in which Oscar is called on to explain to his teacher his absence from school!
On an ordinary Monday morning, Oscar is at the skate park when he is drawn into the incredibly imaginative world of elven spells and challenges.
Oscar is a lovable character that is highly relatable to children, and will have you not only believing in him but believing in yourself too!
Absolutely enthralling, funny and filled with adventure. Perfect for ages 10 and up with beautiful illustrations to capture the magical story.
