Product description

Stuart Horten – ten years old and small for his age – moves to the dreary town of Beeton, far away from all his friends. And then he meets his new next-door neighbours, the unbearable Kingley triplets, and things get even worse. But in Beeton begins the strangest adventure of Stuart’s life, as he is swept up in quest to find his great-uncle’s lost workshop – a workshop stuffed with trickery and magic. There are clues to follow and puzzles to solve. But what starts out as fun soon turns dangerous, and Stuart begins to realise that he can’t finish the task by himself…

    Trickery, mystery and twists!

    Small Change for Stuart is a great book and features alot of trickery, tense moments, mystery, a small twist and an unexpected ending- what more could you want from a book?
    My favourite characters are April and Leonora. April is a great character who seems unfriendly at first but by the end she becomes rather loyal to Stuart. She stood on top of a crane to stop Teeny Tiny Hortens house from being demolished despite knowing that she would get a harsh punishment. My second favourite character is Leonora simply because she was kind, caring and friendly and even though she didnt know Stuart she trusted him.
    My favourite scene was when they were in the museum at night as I felt scared for them because at any moment they could be discovered and because Stuart couldn't open the window so they could escape and get back home.
    I rate this book 9/10; definetly a good read and I recommend it to all!
