The Riddle of Tanglewood Manor
Once you open this book, you too, will be tangled.
To Sam and Harry, a tree change means a TREEHOUSE… and time travel! 150-year-old Tanglewood Manor is Sam and Harry’s new home in the country. As their parents set about renovating the ruin, the brothers explore its secrets.
One book in the dusty library is different. They open it and read a riddle. Now the house is suddenly full of the dead people from the portraits on the walls. And they are very much ALIVE.
Will Sam and Harry ever be able to return home, or will Tanglewood Manor keep them in its grip forever?
The historical references add an extra layer to the narrative, with the opportunity for humour when the kids’ modern lives conflict with the new one they’ve found themselves in... this would be a perfect book to share or read aloud among adults and children.
The Riddle of Tanglewood Manor is an enjoyable, spooky, time-travelling adventure suitable for independent readers and for reading aloud as a chapter book.
