About Leigh Belrose



Review by: Emy Katherine on May 16, 2017 :
BEYOND A LARGE STEEP HILL by the very talented author Leigh Belrose is a fascinating story about a ten-year-old boy named Everett, who is playing a game of 'Blind Man's Buff' with his friends on his birthday. When he accidentally trips over a log it sends him tumbling down a large steep hill into a surreal adventure.

This is an enchanting story that can be read in one sitting. It is fast-paced and full of suspense. A real page-turner that will keep you guessing till the end. The story is original and compelling and I really enjoyed the interactions between the characters. The author also has a great imagination and sense of humour. The illustrations are simple yet cute.

What I liked best about this book is the author's choice to represent the main character Everett, as a boy who is always trying to view each situation in a positive light. It's definitely a book that can teach kids to be optimistic and nice to each other.

The language however, is a little bit advanced, but it is not a negative thing because it could be a good opportunity for children to learn new terms, something a parent could easily help with.It is a story any parent or grandparent would really enjoy reading to their child.

Due to all these reasons, I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
I highly recommend this novel to children and adults alike.

I received a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest and unpaid review.

Beyond a Large Steep Hill by Leigh Belrose is an enchanting story for children that revolves around a little boy, Everett, whose life changes after he tumbles down a steep hill while playing blind man's buff with his friends. Everett does not know that there is a great adventure awaiting him as he tumbles down the hill. As he rolls down, blindfolded, he finds himself transported to a magical land where he encounters many surreal and magical characters that blow his mind. The characters and situations Everett meets as a result of his tumbling down makes the story an entertaining read and will take readers to a dimension that is dreamy and whimsical. The story is fast paced and children will love to be in Everett's shoes and go through his adventures. The narration is detailed and descriptive, making the scenes and action vivid. Whether it is the Lyrebird, Cassiopeia, or any other character that Everett meets, the book will have readers flipping the pages to find out what is going to come next and will keep them glued till the very end. With all its magic and enchantment, the book is ideal for bedtime story-telling. The story is also good for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries. The black and white illustrations are charming and they breathe life into the scenes. Stories with a lot of whimsy and interesting characters and situations make readers imagine and think beyond their comfort zones, and encourage them to bring their creativity and ideas to the fore.
