I just read this story book. I was so thrilled as if I saw the Bomb itself.
Author: Jim Eldridge

Publishing: Edinburgh : Barrington Stoke, 2011.
This is a thriller novella. A man called Rob came to defuse the bomb. When another man Tom went to defuse it in the railway station, which is left by some criminals, he cut the wrong wire and he died on the spot.
Rob was from an Army. He had lot of experience to defuse the bomb. He hid himself in a ACE cleaner’s dress. The chapter ‘60 seconds left‘ was so thrilling.
I love this novella, because of four reasons.
- This is story of knights.
- It was a funny story.
- It was a thriller as well.
- I learned many new words from this story

I like a poem from this story.
The rat, the cat and the Lovel dog,
Rule all the England under the hog.
I wrote this story book like a bear eating honey.
I wanted to be a knight after reading this novella. But this happened in the past. So I cannot be one. A knight’s lifestyle is different, however only when I’m on the winning side.
What happened at last? What happened to George? What happened to England. You would see in a twisting climax.
“And the ghost?” said Annie.
“That goes up and down and around and pays out passers-by,” said Willa. The sisters fell silent and stared at the flashing water.

I’m going to write about a novella called Storm. I like this story book because –
- It is a thriller
- I learn how to write a story
The main characters are given below.
- Annie – A little girl living near the Marsh
- Mr Carter – Annie’s father
- Willa – Annie’s elder sister
- Mrs Carter – Annie’s mother
- Rod – Willa’s husband
- Elkin – Owner of the farm land
- Dr Grant – The doctor
- Storm – Mysterious horse man
- Chestnut mare- Storm’s horse
Annie knew the secret about the great marsh. She even heared about its ghost. But one terrible night, Annie must brave the stormy marsh alone. And that time not even she knew what to expect.
When there was a great storm in outdoor, Willa was pregnant and waiting for baby. Annie volunteered to go in the stormy night to bring Dr Grant. Though Annie was afraid of the ghost, she took this risk for her elder sister.
The mysterious horse man was not smiling. He had a fearful dark voice. But he was very kind to Annie. Whether Annie encountered with the ghost of marshland, was she able to meet Dr Grant? The climax answered these questions.
I took this book from Serangoon Public Library. My brother scribbled in its 13th page.
