Maskmaker product reviews

When Jamie's mysterious art teacher sends him to the old Maskmaker's shop, he is faced with a terrible decision. He must choose a disguise that will take him into mortal danger, with only a taking cat to help him.

In the deserts of Africa, the frozen glaciers of Greenland, and the Great Wall of China, Jamie will need all his intelligence and courage if he is to save his friends and family.

Will the perilous tasks he faces help him solve the strange problems in his own life? Or will a dark web of sorcery stop him from ever coming home again.

If you had to become someone else, who would you choose?

This brand-new novel from Scholastic is about a young boy named Jamie who is sent to a mask makers shop on a deserted street and is told to pick a mask that will change his life forever. I must say that 'Maskmaker' was absolutely outstanding from start to finish, in fact I think that it was ten times as good as Jim Springman and the Realm of Glory for it had more action, drama, excitement and danger.
I thought it was very well-written and the jokes were hilarious, some of them anyway, but the book itself was great. I loved the cover as it had a nice background colour, and the tiger mask looked very cool as the embossed cover made it look very 3D and colourful on the metallic paper. The storyline was an easy read, there weren't any long or hard-to-understand words in it, plus it didn't have too many scary parts in it.
The main character, Jamie, seemed to be a cool kid that I'd want to have as a friend, he was brave, talented, and last but not least, he was rather funny. Miss Lambent, on the other hand, was a bit scary, especially when she revealed her true identity.
The age group I think that the age group this book is aimed at is good 10 and over, in fact I could almost say that it's good for all ages as I think it would probably be enjoyable for everyone. 'Maskmaker' is a good book to read, and I'm sure that you will find it great as well.
