The Willoughbys- Lois Lowry (Review)


“I have learned over the course of my many years that it is a bad idea, usually, to investigate piteous weeping but always a fine thing to look into a giggle.”

Lois Lowry, The Willoughbys

Lois Lowry at her finest- an engaging adventure story with elements of humour and mystery to keep readers engrossed until the finish. This slim volume is an ideal read-aloud to share as part of your family’s summer reading tradition. Bibliophiles will delight in the multiple references to classic books who feature orphans – think Anne of green gables, Jane Eyre and James and the Giant Peach to name a few. The story follows a mysteriously abandoned child – and the lovable character Mr. Willoughby – this book is a good family choice which will entertain readers of many ages. Enjoy
