    1 thought on “Thorn Ogres Of Hagwood

    1. 4.5 stars.A great, funny, adventurous book! I reread it twice. Good for fantasy fans who are bored and don't know what to read. I think it would be great for all ages, but especially ten or older.

    2. One of the first books I ever read as a child. It encompasses everything I loved as a boy. It's creepy and has some great gory bits. Unfortunately Robin Jarvis has yet to write the promised sequel.

    3. Fab book really spooky but RJ never did the other books which was reallu diappointing. If it came out now id read it.

    4. Reading this book, you'd think that it'd be geared for children the way how the world building is and how plot is set. And it IS a great children's book, if you ignore the PG 13 violence it has. *Laughs* If you're familiar with the Warriors children series by Erin Hunter and the violence those books have, Thorn Ogres Of Hagwood is kind of like that, but maybe a little more frightening.It's still a great book though. I very much enjoyed the classic 'woodland fantasy' feel that it has. :)

    5. Jarvis was my favourite author from my childhood days but I struggled to find time to read him once university, full-time work and toddlers took over. Almost as if he was waiting for me, he slowed down his output as well.But suddenly, in the last five years, he has come back with a vengeance, cranking out the darkly brilliant Dancing Jax books for older teenagers and and his new series set in Whitby which has just come out (as at July 2016).So feeling the need to step up my game a bit and start [...]

    6. My name is Gamaliel, and I can't even succeed at wergling into a mouse. Changing into different animals is the key to our survival, and I'm thankful that Finnen is trying to help me. No one can wergle better than him; it's almost unnatural. Later, I'd only heard stories about the High Lady, but Finnen took me along to secretly see her and her army of terrifying creatures. They really exist, and Frighty Aggie too! Frighty Aggie bit me and I almost died, but I think the poison has affected me in s [...]

    7. I found this buried in a dusty box of childrens books in St. Peter's church in the town of Sandwich in Kent. My copy is stamped with 'Ellington and Hereford School'. I'm pretty sure I read this in the distant past - the cover looks familiar anyhow.This tale follows the exploits of Gamaliel, who is a wereling. This means he is able to shapeshift into a mouse or hedgehog or other small woodland creature. The story starts out with him learning how to morph for the very first time, but he is a deniz [...]

    8. A very well handled YA fantasy with some beautiful, unique imagery, interesting characters and a well paced plot.My favourite aspect was the world of the Hagwood, in which the book is set; it feels well-realised, and is very well drawn. Dark, and organic, and consciously revealed through plot rather than exposition.The characters were fairly lightly drawn, but that is to be expected from a short book. They were given enough character to make me feel for them, to a degree, but I don't feel as tho [...]

    9. This should really be a four star, but I marked it down for taking so long to get the sequel published. I'm not sure if this was a matter of Jarvis suffering writer's block or of Puffin not agreeing to the sequels, but having read this when I was 21 (pretty old for a kids book), it left me a little peeved that the sequel only came out in 2013, and I don't know if I'll ever get around to reading it as apparently it is only available through print on demand!

    10. This book has a really good plot with a fantastic character developement. For example, Frighty Aggie, who was a former werling master but later became a spider because she used a forbidden werling magice insect transformations.People of hagwood thinks that the high lady who ruled hagwood was a fair ruler, but she was the one that killed her father and blamed it on her brother.

    11. I really enjoyed this read a lot - interesting characters, involved plot and sub-plots are referenced - quite a bit of promise and depth here - but it is the first of a trilogy and was published in 1999 - the rest of the trilogy hasn't been published yet even though the author indicates on his site that he's written book two.

    12. took me awhile to get into and had to reread it cos a lost it or found it at times slightly confusing took me longer than usual to get into a childrens bbook and at times found it interesting and at other times confusing i would like to know what happens to them in future books but believe very hard to get into

    13. An enthralling story of adorable characters who encounter evil and terrifying adversaries they have to overcome to survive. I cannot wait to read more of the hagwood series and would thoroughly recommend this to children aged ten and above.

    14. I Absolutly LOVED this book growing up, and have held onto it as I have become a parent. Now my own daughter is reading it.
