I have just finished reading this book, and I really enjoyed it.
It was both interesting and different from many books I have read before. At first it seems like a normal story, about a boy who goes to England to discover more about his grandfather, and his childhood. But, soon it turns out that Grandpa Portman's stories all were true. Both monsters and peculiar children really do exist! I really love the way the vintage photos in the book complements the story, they really add a special atmosphere to the book.
I also think that the story was great. It is all fantasy and made up, but it was not so unrealistic that is seemed weird. However, I am not sure if I liked the ending or not. It was quite unexpected, but a little weird.
Here are two of the pictures from the book, some of them are really creepy. If any of you have read this book, I would love to hear your thoughts on it!
