Synopsis

Meet the girl who ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE is trying to avoid!

The completely unreliable and totally irrepressible Ivy Pocket must orchestrate a most daring and brilliant rescue in the wickedly funny conclusion to the Ivy Pocket trilogy. Neil Gaiman meets Lemony Snicket and the Series of Unfortunate Events in this hilarious series that the Huffington Post called “a must-read.” Perfect for middle school readers!

Since she came into possession of the Clock Diamond, Ivy Pocket has been chased, tricked, kidnapped, locked in an institution, and subjected to a truly terrible set of adoptive parents. Luckily, Ivy Pocket always lands on her feet—having all the natural instincts of a frightened feline. With the Clock Diamond in hand, she hurries to rescue her best friend, Rebecca, who is being held prisoner in a parallel world. But Ivy Pocket has fallen ill, there’s a man in a white suit following her everywhere, and the Butterfields seem to be behind yet another plot to lock her away. With a few tricks and all the natural instincts of a master of disguise, Ivy Pocket is sure she can dodge her enemies long enough to pull off the most daring rescue anyone has ever seen.

The fast-paced conclusion to the Ivy Pocket trilogy, which School Library Journal called a “gripping-and laugh-out-loud-adventure.” Featuring extensive and hilarious black-and-white interior art by Barbara Cantini. “Please, nobody stop Ivy Pocket.” —Kirkus Reviews

My Thoughts

Reading this book was really bittersweet for me.  I was excited to read the third book.  After all, it was the whole reason why my daughter and I started this series.

In the end, everything that I thought this book would be, it was.  I absolutely loved it just as much as the others I have read.

As I was reading though, I had a sinking feeling that this was going to be the last one in the series.  And after all the pages were read, my instincts were correct.

However, I would like to express my gratitude and enthusiasm towards the author.  He knew it was time for the series to wrap up and did so in a beautiful way.

Bring Me the Head of Ivy Pocket jumps back in whether the previous one had left off, and it did so without missing a beat.  There were so many great things that happened while reading it.

After numerous questions and ponderings (all in my head of course), we FINALLY find out where the Clock Diamond’s power comes from, in addition, to discovering the truth about Ivy’s real mother.

I promise to keep it all hush, hush, so I don’t ruin the book for anyone.  But rest assured, you will discover the answers to these questions in this book.

The descriptions have always been great, but I especially enjoyed the one regarding the “void”.

You will encounter lots of surprises and twists, as well as, some highs and lows.  And reunions of many types popup throughout the book.

Words that I simply adored in the book were skulduggery, blimey and gobsmacking.

When all is said and done, I couldn’t ask for a better series for my child to read.  I think it’s a great one for kids who walk to a beat of a different drum.  I will most definitely be picking up other books written by Caleb Krisp.   After all, I have all the natural instincts of a super read. . . or at at the very least, a reader who enjoys discovering hidden gems by accident.

Did you think Justice Hallow was going to change her mind when she found out the truth about Ivy or did you think she already knew and didn’t care?
