When their grandmother Sylvie is rushed to the hospital, Ivy Sparrow and her annoying big brother Seb cannot imagine what adventure lies in store. Soon their house is ransacked by unknown intruders, and a very strange policeman turns up on the scene, determined to apprehend them . . . with a toilet brush. Ivy and Seb make their escape only to find themselves in a completely uncommon world, a secret underground city called Lundinor where ordinary objects have amazing powers … But the forces of evil are closing in fast, and when Ivy and Seb learn that their family is connected to one of the greatest uncommon treasures of all time, they must race to unearth the treasure and get to the bottom of a family secret . . . before it’s too late.
The Book Review:
With help from her mom, 9.5-year-old Kait Manley read the “Uncommoners: The Crooked Sixpence” and shares her book review through an adorable video. Watch Kait talk about this wonderful children’s book — she introduces the characters and the storyline and says “it was a bit funny, a bit scary, and a bit … fun”. Kait really liked this book and would be very interested in reading a second Uncommoners book too. See her video review below.
