The Turners- Mick Elliott

The Turners by Mick Elliott
Released:  April 26, 2016
Pages: 246
Buy it: amazon

When Leo Lennox turns into a Komoto Dragon in the middle of the school library, things only become more complicated from there.  Leo discovers his family are shape-shifters that at night turn into an animals.  When Leo unexpectly changes during the day his father goes looking for answers.   When he does not return Leo and his sister Abbie start off on a adventure trying to discover what happened to him.

I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had read this when I was younger.  In saying that I thought it had a great plot.  With great, descriptive writing.  It was funny but also had me guessing what would happen next.

With strange, interesting and mysterious group of characters.   I thought it got repetitive in the middle. Overall it was a really enjoyable book and looking forward to pick up the next book.
The ending was fantastically written.  It has definitely gotten me interested in the next book of this series.

In the end I gave this book a 3.5/5.

Have you read the Turners?  What did you think of the book?
