Finley McPhee has a normal life, fishing and taking walks on the shores of Applecross, Scotland. When he gets caught skipping school, Finley is sentenced to a summer of delivering mail. His life completely changes when he delivers a letter to a place he has never heard of, the Enchanted Emporium. Here he finds an unusual house and some very unusual (and mysterious) people. This book is incredible, as it combines adventure and fun together with just a little bit of magic. I picked it up and couldn’t put it down. The only problem with it was that it ended and I couldn’t read more without going to the library! This was an easy read and I give it five stars. This book is great for kids in third to sixth grade and I highly recommend it Review by Martha C, 12, Columbus Area Mensa

Poor Finley always seems to either make trouble or find it. Not only does he not like school he dislikes it so much that he has accumulated 71 unexcused absences and finds himself being held back a grade. You would think most of his summer would be spent worrying about this fact but instead his parents have enlisted the help of Reverend Prospero to whip Finley into shape so that he will start to care about things and be less lazy and Reverend Prospero thinks a good dose of community service would do the trick. Finley finds himself helping out at the supermarket which ends in him being sent to help out at the post office instead and it is here at the post office that Finley finds his calling so to speak. A mean dog. A sprained ankle. And viola Finley is riding a bike all over the town delivering mail to everyone while Jules, the regular postman, rests his sprained ankle.  This seemingly mundane job to a 13 year old boy but soon a mysterious letter with an even more mysterious address is his to deliver and unbeknownst to Finley this letter will change his whole life! Giants. A Enchanted Emporium. Magical Objects. And a Girl. Have Changed Finley's Life Forever. This whimsical tale had me wishing I was a child again the magic that the author weaves is truly delightful. This book would enchant any young reader!
