Book Review, Middle Grade Fiction

Mort the Meek and the Ravens’ Revenge by Rachel Delahaye & illustrated by George Ermos

Mort the Meek and the Ravens’ Revenge celebrates everything kids find hilarious! It is deliciously gruesome and appetisingly deadly. Creepy characters, bossy baddies and brain-eating ravens fill the pages with grotesque fun. George Ermos’ brilliant illustrations add to the spark of the story and pull readers in.

Brutalia is an island of terrifying ugliness. The Queen and King rule with an iron fist and have laws against everything that is beautiful. Through a strange twist of fate, pacifist Mort is named the Royal Executioner and tasked with killing his own friend. He has a week to come up with a plan to get out of this deadly act and save his friend. With the help of some unusual friends, Mort goes on a crazy journey.

Along the way, he learns how to break the rules and stand up to the tyranny that overshadows the land. Lessons about being true to yourself and standing up for what you believe in fill the pages and leave readers laughing, cheering and feeling inspired.

The next book, Mort the Meek: The Monstrous Quest should be just as engaging and fun!

Thank you to Little Tiger Press for this gruesomely fun book!
