Sounds like a fascinating read - thanks for sharing the supplemental materials as well, makes it good for teaching in the classroom!

You make a good point here. What may seem cliche to adults is still new to kids!
Thank you for sharing this with the Kid Lit Blog Hop!


Wonderful review! I have not read this book yet but can easily see the appeal to YA/Adults. I would think that a plot such as this one never really gets old. I saw this movie very early on but never read the book. Also I did not know that John Buchan had historical fiction to his name (my favorite genre). Thanks for sharing this on Kid Lit Blog Hop!

It seems this book definitely falls between the teen lit/young adult and adult books with some of its darker themes (i.e., murder). I still love a good spy story though - I was reading Ian Fleming in about Grade 7 I believe and just tore through all the books. Sounds like a great read for an advanced reader. Thanks for sharing your recommendation in the Kid Lit Blog Hop.


Great recommendation - I'd be curious to read this one myself! Also, thanks for the "writing" book recommendation; now, I've got two more books to search out.

Rather belated thanks to you all for taking time to visit and comment! Sometimes bookselling gets in the way of maintaining the blog!
