    One thought on “Northwood”

    1. This book is like a mixture of Howl's moving castle and Alice in wonderland. A review copy was given to me in exchange for an honest review.The author made this book feel like I'm really watching a movie. Imagine being away from home and just starting your own adventure in a very, very unexpected wayd please take note that she is just 10! That takes guts and a lot of luck! I appreciate the humor in the narration of the story. I also like the twist in the plot. It was something that I could never [...]

    2. Okay, I would have loved this as a kid. This is definitely a book that will appeal to younger readers. But even though this is MG, it was still an entertaining read as an adult. This wasn't a predictable story, I really had no idea how it was going to resolve in the end. I liked how this is a MG story that wasn't "dumbed down for the sake of younger readers. The plot wasn't blatantly obvious, and as a reader, I appreciated that.Cecelia was the kind of main character I would have adored as a kid, [...]

    3. One of the two stars is because there is a sammy in the book, the reason i've been wanting to read it for several years.If you're familiar w/sams, this one doesn't behave the way one does. the writing isMaybe i was expecting too much in wanting a book co-starring a samoyed to be enjoyable , well written or original. The one thing i can write positive is that at least Father Christmas didn't ride up and tell the people that things were about to be better. The art was good.

    4. This is a review for an uncorrected Advanced Readers Copy.Cover Blurb: Yes or No? The cover art is very charming – as are the illustrations inside. But I wish the story itself had been as charming as the cover art.Characters: To be quite honest, the characters of this novel left extremely fleeting impressions. They weren’t necessarily underdeveloped – there just wasn’t anything to set them apart from the myriad of plucky orphans and plucky twins and plucky girl heroines that populate Mid [...]

    5. iwishidknown.wordpress/201I received Northwood by Brian Falkner from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.From the start, I was intrigued by the premise of Northwood. A story about a girl lost in a forest filled with lions? Awesome. But I was still surprised and impressed by the story. Good pacing, some twists and turns and a satisfying conclusion. There were a few loose threads that needed tying, but it didn’t detract from the overall story.Cecilia is a very independent and smart girl l [...]

    8. A kids book with enough adventure and tension to make anyone enjoy it. Cecilia Undergarment grew up in a balloon house. Not an actual balloon, but a house shaped like a balloon. She also had a secret; she can talk to animals. (Very Eliza Thornberry, I know). One day she was playing in the attic when she heard a dog barking wildly. She couldn't tell what the dog was saying (she has to be able to look at the face of the animals she talks to in order to understand them), but she could tell this dog [...]

    9. Here is a book I think many readers can adore! "Northwood" is middle grade novel that is enjoyable for all ages. It is a quick, easy read with an easy vocab, short sentences, and few descriptive details. Gorgeously it includes a few pictures which help with a few of the harder to imagine elements of the book. The story is adorable, with a feeling reminiscent of "A Series of Unfortunate Events", and draws you in quickly with it's quirky world.I loved the fairy tale elements. Our MC, Cecilia lives [...]

    10. Celia Undergarment is ten yrs old. Her dad owns a balloon factory and her house is made of giant balloons. Her room is on top – a huge clear balloon. Celia can understand animals and when the neighbour’s Samoyd ‘Rocky’ tells her he’s not being fed since his mistress (Mrs Proctor) left, Celia decides to rescue him. With her nanny’s help she uses balloons to lift Rocky out of his back yard. Mr Proctor is very cross, and jumps into a bulldozer and crashes into their balloon house. Celia [...]

    11. I was given a free ARC of Northwood from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. I was really impressed by this book. I liked it a lot more than I expected I would. Northwood is written for middle schoolers, but I felt so,e of the content was a bit graphic, like animal abuse. They are some fantasy aspects in this book like the main character's ability to converse with animals, the giant balloon house she lives in and the enchanted forest she in which becomes a prisoner. I was worried I woul [...]

    12. Cecilia Undergarment converses with animals. That's normal for her, but she's aware it's not normal for everyone. She's quite happy and loved in her life. Due to her talent and compassion, she rescues Rocky, her neighbor's dog, who isn't being appropriately cared for. As a result, mayhem ensues sending she and Rocky off to the frightful Northwood where deeper mysteries await.A delightfully descriptive narrative illustrates scenery, characters, actions, etc allowing a depth of enjoyment for the s [...]

    13. A delightful read! I couldn't put it down. The story was whimsical, a little bit magical, engaging, calm, and suspenseful. The author speaks directly to the reader, middle grade reader, engaging them in the story, and talking in their language and at their level. I immediately fell in love with Celia Undergarment, the main character. She was such a good hearted, kind, brave, ambitious, outspoken, and fiesty little girl. She may be young, but she is smart, develops fantastic plans, and is persist [...]

    14. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review. Cecilia Undergarment is an ordinary girl – except for the fact that she lives in a balloon house, and can talk to animals. I found this book fun and truly enjoyable to read. Falkner’s creativity and imagination makes this fantastic story come alive. The illustrations found throughout the book are gorgeous, and lend a greater depth to the story. I loved the narration style, and the sense of clever humor found thr [...]

    15. Thanks to Netgalley and Capstone Young Readers for early access to this title.3 1/2 stars - this was quite a cute story! I enjoyed the narration, which is done in a colloquial way to replicate a person talking. The story line is enjoyable and suspenseful, and the ending is quite satisfactory. There are some loose ends that don't get resolved, however, particularly in regards to the neighbors. I would have liked to see that situation addressed and summed up. But overall this is a fun story that k [...]

    16. This was a great story, but was surprisingly far less "fantasy" and much more "adventure" than I thought it would be. All of the fantastical elements were explained using speculative science, so it was even a little more like science fiction than fantasy. I really liked how strong the characters were, and how complicated the plot twists became. It wasn't a phenomenal work of literature, but certainly worth the read!

    17. Something about the writing style reminds me of Lemony Snicket, fans will likely enjoy this tale. The narrator is almost conversational with the reader, calming walking us through harrowing events. Suggested for grades 3+.

    18. This is my favourite book that I have ever read. I love the mystery and how she lives in a house of balloons. I especially like her travelling companion. I hate the king And I think that the lions are awesome.

    19. OMG!!! Best book in the world!! Full of adventure, when reading this book I can just imagine the pictures in my head with all the details they give you, it was so good I gave it to my mum to read and she couldn't put the book down!! She loved it and so did I, it not a very long book but still it took me about 5-8 days to read. ( with all the extra bits of having to put it down due chores and stuff like that) AWESOME BOOK!!

    20. *ARC received via Netgalley from Capstone Young Readers.I decided to read Brian Falkner's middle-grade fiction story, Northwood, to cleanse my palate after reading so many romance and paranormal books this year. I haven't read middle-grade fiction in such a long time, and I kept asking myself how I could possibly relate to the characters when they're a decade younger than me. But Northwood just proved me wrong.Northwood is one of those books that reminded me that no matter how old I may be now, [...]

    21. I got a copy of this book to review through NetGalley. Originally it was put in with the graphic novels there, which this is not a graphic novel. It ended up being an okay middle grade read with some excellent artwork throughout.Cecilia Undergarment is a unique girl who lives in a unique balloon shaped house. Oh, and she can talk to animals. When she sees that her neighbors dog is incredibly unhappy she is determined to rescue the dog. When she rescues the dog some unfortunate events occur that [...]

    22. Northwood is a middle grade novel written by Brian Falkner and illustrated Donovan Bixley. Cecilia Undergarment discovers that the dog next door is being mistreated. She is determined to help him, but her daring rescue sends her and the dog, Rocky, on an amazing adventure into the dark forest called Northwood.

    23. Northwood was a beautiful, beautiful book!I debated between four and five stars only because of this: I teach 7th grade, and it is a bit more of a challenge for me to rate a book that falls on the younger end of the spectrum. But after thinking of myself when I was younger, and some of my students who I'd recommend this to, I went for five stars.Here were some of my favorite things about Northwood:- The language. Falkner's vocabulary is so lovely. His word choices are precise (unless it is Evan [...]

    24. Northwood by Brian Falkner1. The story mainly took place in Northwood. It’s a place where nobody can escape from. Cecilia somewhere finds herself in an odd and strange place. The main character is Cecilia and the minor characters are Avery and Evan.2. I feel like the characters in the book seem unbelievable because the people have been stuck in the woods for a long time. The King didn’t even help the people of Northwood get out of the place. The King was the only one who knew the way out of [...]

    25. A Great Heroine; A Ripping AdventureThis might sound odd at first, but - one of the most appealing aspects of this book, to my mind, is that it is both calm and exciting. By that I mean that it is filled with derring do, adventure, thrills and suspense, and yet it is presented in an elegant, understated and comforting fashion. I attribute that primarily to the narrator, who speaks directly to the young reader and who comments regularly on the action, the story, the characters, and related matter [...]

One day her attic comes off of her roof and she is stuck in a forest so she needs to find a way out.Cecilia Undergarment is the main character, a 10 year old girl who can interact with animals Cecelia’s attic floats off of her house and she ends up in a forest that is known for people never returning.
