Conor's day doesn't start well. His right arm seems to be missing, and he appears to have grown horns! Then his Mum tears her favourite skirt on a loose spring in the sofa.
It's obviously time to replace the sofa, but money is tight. So when Conor sees a red sofa bobbing in the tide, it seems like fate is working in his favour. But there's something very strange about this particular sofa...
A Crack In The Sky is a neat wee novel for children starting to read bigger books. The chapters are relatively small so kids may just read one or two chapters at a time and then go back to it later.
This story has happy and sad parts to it. When Connor's mum rips her skirt on their sofa they decide to buy a new one. On their budget however they cannot afford one. So Connor thinks he is one lucky boy when he sees a red sofa bobbing in the bay. He runs home to tells his mother. Sceptically they manage to get it home with the help from some neighbours.
The problem arises one day when Connor realises he's no longer at home, he's in a strange land with people he doesn't know, but somehow when he starts talking to them he suddenly remembers everyone's names. Connor then sets off for discovering where he is, how he got there and how he can get back to his Mum.
This story is very involved and keeps the reader wanting to know what happens next. But is there a happy ending??
I will be recommending this to others.
