Part of the Urgum Series

Key Stage 2

LoveReading View on Urgum The Axeman

The first in a terrific new series likely to appeal to the 7 plus market. The storyline and the characters are wacky and witty and there are some terrific pictures by Philip Reeve. The characters are not to be missed. Urgum and the seat of flames is the next one in the series.
