BOOK REVIEW: THE NOWHERE EMPORIUM by Ross MacKenzie


BLURB:

When the mysterious Nowhere Emporium arrives in Glasgow, orphan Daniel Holmes stumbles upon it quite by accident. Before long, the “shop from nowhere”—and its owner, Mr Silver—draw Daniel into a breathtaking world of magic and enchantment. 

Recruited as Mr. Silver's apprentice, Daniel learns the secrets of the Emporium's vast labyrinth of passageways and rooms—rooms that contain wonders beyond anything Daniel had ever imagined. 
However, when Mr Silver disappears, and a shadow from the past threatens everything, the Emporium and all its wonders begin to crumble.

Can Daniel save his home, and his new friends, before the Nowhere Emporium is destroyed forever?

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

I love this book so much! It is incredibly amazing and I could not stop reading it. It has wonderful descriptive words and I love the characters.  The reader's imagination will go wild! My favorite character is Ellie, who is Mr. Silver's daughter! 

The Nowhere Emporium is a magical shop that has midnight color bricks on the outside and magic in the inside. The price you pay is a little of your imagination. Mr. Silver, who is the owner, is losing his magic and needs an apprentice and he does not need to wait very long to find one! Daniel Holmes came running into The Nowhere Emporium one day to get away from bullies at the orphanage. 

You must read the book to find out more! 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 10-13.
