Fantastic #Children’s Adventure – Edie and the Box of Flits by Kate Wilkinson – #RhymingReview @PiccadillyPress

A modern classic for readers of THE BORROWERS – about eleven-year-old Edie Winter and her magical box of winged people that only children can see.

When eleven-year-old Edie Winter finds a mysterious shoebox on the London Underground she’s amazed to discover that it’s home to a family of Flits – tiny winged people. But Impy, Speckle and Nid need Edie’s help. Not only do they need supplies (rice crispies, sugar sprinkles, digestive biscuits and raisins) and someone to look after them, but their brother Jot has run away and they need Edie’s help to find him.

Set against the backdrop of London and its Underground network, EDIE WINTER AND THE BOX OF FLITS is a story about friendship, family and noticing the little things in life.

With stunning black and white artwork throughout.

My Review:

This is a delightful children’s book,
One I highly recommend, please take a look!
It stars Edie Winter and tiny winged people who
Are much smaller than me and you.

Edie’s dad works on the Underground
In the Department for the Lost and Found.
The tiny people she finds cannot be seen
By anyone aged over thirteen.

They’re Flits - Impy, Speckle and Nid
But they need Edie to find Jot, who is missing or hid.
They need food supplies and to find their brother
As well as to help protect after each other.

Edie’s Dad is in trouble with his boss, too
As found goods go missing, disappearing from view.
Where can they have gone and can they be found
Somewhere else on the Underground?

There’s Flits to aid and other creatures to fight
Before this adventure can end with everything right.
It is a great read, and illustrated well, so
I highly recommend you give reading it a go!

Thanks to Piccadilly Press for my copy of this fantastic book,
Having read and honestly reviewed it, I hope you'll take a look!
