Molly Moon's Incredible Book of HypnotismAges 9-12
Orphan Molly Moon was found as a baby in a box marked 'Moon's Marshmallows'.
For ten miserable years she's lived under the cruel rule of Miss Adderstone in grim Hardwick House. But her life changes overnight when she finds a mysterious book on hypnotism and discovers an amazing talent - the power to make people do anything she want them to. Escaping from the orphange, Molly flies to New York in search of fame and fortune. But her adventures in hypnotism lead her into the clutches of a dangerous enemy . . .
I adored Molly Moon's Incredible Book of Hypnotism because it has a brilliant plot snapping at you at just the right time. The author, Georgia Byng, describes the hard and the great points of Molly's life and has written a perfect story full of suspense, anxiety, regret, joy and happiness.
