The invitation was delivered by bees. It wasn't addressed to anyone at all, but Ben knew it was for him. It would lead him to an old, shambolic museum, full of strange and bewitching creatures. A peculiar world of hidden mysteries and curious family secrets . . . and some really dangerous magic.

I give it - 4/5
My review - I absolutely adored this book!
I really love the writing of this book, the story and also, the beautiful designs that are within this book that bring it too life. It really brought it all together and I just loved turning each page to see what I would find and to see where the story was going.
It was such a joy to read and I think this book is great for everyone and families who want to read it with their children.
It all starts with an invitation to a small museum by bees.
You will just want to jump into this book as it's very fun, interesting, has a great story line and is filled with so many different characters that everyone will enjoy. The villains are horrible, scary, evil and just everything a villain should be and the other characters are all fun, enjoyable and definitely going to be some favourites for people who read this.
Helen has done such a brilliant job with this book and the illustrations. She has brought these characters to life with her drawings and story. I am excited to see what she does next and I can't recommend this book enough.
