In One Century Friendship by Beanseeds Little, Helen and her three friends scamper off from the main campsite towards the ruined cottage. Despite Miss J. Smith’s warnings, Shelly’s persuasive remarks make each of the four friends grow even more curious as they wonder what the house contains. As they near the place, their fear starts rising. A peek through the window is not enough and soon they are inside the house. On the inside, the cottage seems disappointing until things start happening and Mark goes missing. What started as playful fun turns to dread as the remaining three friends notice his absence. Worse still, they are afraid of confiding in Miss J. Smith since they disobeyed her instructions from the start.
The topic of friendship, which is crucial for children, is explored in One Century Friendship by Beanseeds Little. It was great to see how the children stuck with each other even when they felt they were in danger. The book contains twists that build suspense and some unusual characters who captured my attention. The activities in the book are surprising and entertaining while the combination of fantasy with real elements makes the story unique. The story is fast-paced and short, which makes it an easy read that engages youngsters from beginning to end. I also liked that the questions at the end of each chapter encouraged a review of the previous chapter's content. I definitely think One Century Friendship by Beanseeds Little contains many elements that will thrill and entertain young readers.
