Lots going on, but not too many distractions from the main story. Jacob from corpus christi catholic college, Leeds :. I definitely recommend it! It's a good book for anyone who likes mysteries but it isn't as good as the famous Ruby Redfort series but then again who come make a better mystery series about a 13 year old girl? Shannon from Corpus Christi Catholic College :. I would say a younger age group could read this and might enjoy it, it just wasn't that exciting to read for me. The book case is a relaxation book an you never know who was the 'baddy'.
I would recommend this book to 9's to 11's. The Book Case is a book about a few librarians who solve a mystery of a bank theft. The book is heart pounding, exciting and mysterious. I enjoyed reading it and felt I could relate to the characters. The genre of the book is fictional mystery and I think it is suitable for all ages. It is entertaining and conveys the excitement of boarding school. After reading the book, I was filled with anticipation for the next mystery.
If I had to improve the book, I would describe what each individual girl was like so that there would be more suspects. This would increase the suspense. I like this book and I enjoyed reading it because it is a really interesting story and I also like the pictures that go with the story.
I like stories to say what they are about before the story starts. Daphne is the main character. She is cute, smart and loves to read books. Daphne immediately takes the opportunity when she is asked, to be a librarian assistant as she absolutely loves books. Daphne soon discovers a new library assistant known as Emily Lime who is said to be a crime solving genius when you get to know her. They both go on a mission to solve a big mystery…. I don't usually read detective books, but I liked this one very much, as the girls' boarding school setting was reminiscent of Murder Most Unladylike.
Also, I liked the illustrations and several parts of the book were very funny! However, there were not many suspects, which I think would have made the plot more interesting, and I would have liked to know more about day-to-day life at St Rita's. Still, I overall think that this is a great book and I can see why it was nominated! Daphne is a new girl at the school and George is the only boy.

They set out to investigate about a robbery. I thought the story was interesting but it was a bit too long and goes into details from the first page, I prefer a description of the setting. I think that the pictures makes the story better. A brilliant novel to read!
Once Upon a Bookcase
This book was very intriguing with all its plots and mysteries. However, for me,I think this book was quite childish and even though I enjoyed it I wouldn't read it again. I feel the book was well described and each character was likeable in their own way. The Book Case is an interesting book by Dave Shelton which talks about life at a run-down school. Clumsy George manages to give new student and 'assistant, assistant' librarian Daphne a sort of warm welcome. When she reaches the library, she is met by the bossy Emily Lime who is adamant to take charge when the head librarian, Mrs Crump, has to go away due to 'nerves'.
Daphne has to adapt to the lifestyle of the girls at St Rita's with the help of Marion, the richest girl in the school, and some other very naughty school girls. I really liked this book because it was full of adventure. The mystery throughout of the different events did not only keep the plot tense, it also lead onto many funny events. Definitely a must read.
I think that this book is very interesting and it has a lot of mysterious plots and twists.

I really liked the main character ,Daphne, because I think that she was a very positive and brave girl. I really liked the fact that it was illustrated because it could let me imagine what the imagery would be like in my mind. I would really recommend this book to teenagers who would love to read a book on adventures. I like this book because the characters personalities are interesting and george makes me laugh!
It creates suspence when you dont know who the robber is! This book is very interesting because it leaves you on a cliffhanger and carries on on the following chapter. Also very exciting and adventurous. The book case is very intriguing and mysterious.
I absolutely love the plot as it is very adventurous and exciting. The main characters are Emily Lime, Daphne and George. Once I started reading I couldn't stop. I would definitely recommend this book. I enjoyed this book when reading it for the first time but would not read it again. It is an ok mystery but not very exciting and easy to predict. I personally would have preferred it if the characters talked in a modern manner instead of the old fashioned, posh way they did.
I say that but did like the characters's personality especially Emily lime as it adds humour and interest to the story. A good book but not one for me. It was very interesting and exciting with lots of plot twists. However, it was a bit childish for me. It was quite a good book, and fairly engaging once I got going with it. A few puns here and there,but the overall feel of the book was a bit young for me.
The Book Case by Dave Shelton | LoveReading
That could just be personal taste though. Daphne is setting off to St. Ritas an exclusive all-girls boarding school. The moment she takes a look at the building she knew it was not what she expected. After a serious of unfortunate events Daphne, Emily Lime and George the only boy set out to crack the case with extraordinary results that are not at all what they expected.
This story was written In third person I really enjoyed the beginning of the book, I thought it was exquisite but when I got further into the book I was confused but as I read it answered all my questions. As a person who loves mystery it I think I was aimed at the right audience and was not babyish or too graphic. Lily-Rose from Allerton Grange School :. This is a really good book. It was light-hearted and funny. The pictures are totally brilliant. I'd like to see more of Daphne's adventures at St Rita's! The book case :an Emily Lime mystery was an amazing book filled with surprise and illegal events.
She loves reading but when she got to her new school, she found out the job included more than just books. Enily, Daphne and George the only boy make a great crime solving trio when the world needs them. I really enjoyed this book and once I started read couldn't stop. It was really intriguing and fun to read. I feel like this book has an unexpected turn because in the beginning Emily is just and assistant librarian and the next she is solving mysteries with Daphne and George.
This book shows how you can have formal levels in conversations. I recommend this book for other kids who like mystery books and detective work. In my opinion, this book is the best mystery book I have read and will always remain the best. At some parts of the book it is very full of suspense and mystery. In addition to this, the only problem with this outstanding book is that when you start you can never stop!
When Daphne is forced to go to St Ritas School for spirited girls to be the assistant assistant librarian, she doesn't know the job will include more than just books. With food fun and even cats the illegal events from the past moths are solved with the help of the crime solving trio Emily, Daphne.
I really like this book and this and the author because when I read you could see that there is a good essence of a mystery. I believe this book is a very good read and does a great job with capturing the essence of a good mystery. I enjoyed the characters and I never wanted to stop reading it. While I enjoyed this book a lot and is one of my favourites out of all the LBA books, I do have some minor problems with it that did bug me a bit while reading. Firstly I didn't really understand why some of the characters where at a school for girls with behaviour problems because they acted perfectly normal such as Emily Lime.
Also I didn't really see any character development however I did enjoy the book. I really like this book because it is mysterious and most events at the beginning of the book come back at the end. I would recommend this book to people that like mystery novels because there's illegal events that happen and the 3 librarians: Emily, Daphne and George the only boy work together and even do some acting just to find out information. My favourite part was When they were going around the school and it was all warn out and then Daphne walked into the library and the mood changed. This book is about a girl named Daphne who went to ST.
Ritas school for spirited girls and came an assistant assistant librarian and after she came an assistant assistant librarian the whole story fell into place with all the mysteries and occasionally in the book they used some past knowledge to help,. I loved this book because at the minute, I am really into mystery genres, and this book suited my taste perfectly. There, she becomes assistant assistant librarian and all the adventures spiral from there! I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys mysteries, or for anyone who is looking for a change in the genre book that they're reading.
The Book Case Synopsis
I found this book really fun and engaging and when I started reading it I could not put it down. I found the book humorous as well as an excellent detective story. I think that because it has different levels of formality and lots of different characters with different personalities,it really makes you want to read more. I would defiantly recommend this book to people of all ages. The storyline was intriguing, with enough red herrings and sub-plots to keep the reader guessing right until the end.
I loved the characters too - each one was distinct and interesting and added to the plot. Jack from Corpus Christi Catholic College :. The book was quite good but I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would. I liked the fact that the main characters were librarians. Its not the best book I have ever read but it is equally not the worst. When i first saw the book i thought it looked quite good however, it didn't appeal to me as much as i thought it would. However I liked how the main characters were Librarians because it shows another side to them that people don;t really expect.
Overall it was quite a good book. Your First Name:. Your Twitter Address:. Your Website:. Your Review:. Who Wrote It? What's It About?
