Small Change for Stuart

Lissa Evans

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 as fun ends up as danger, and Stuart begins to realize that he can’t finish the task by himself …This is the first children’s novel by Lissa Evans. This is a fast-moving blend of comedy and magic.

Review

lissaevansThis is a ripper little adventure that has magic, mystery and family intrigue.

Stuart and his family have moved back to his dad’s hometown where he finds out that a great uncle, whose disappearance has never been solved, was also a magician.

Almost immediately Stuart stumbles on clues to his vanishing but annoyingly is intercepted by three neighbouring sisters, one who turns out to be intrusively persistent and a surprisingly good detective, even for a girl!

Quirky, funny and baffling, Small Change For Stuart is a marvellous read for ages 8–12.
