Boy Brainy by Jenny O'Brien

'A cross between Horrible Histories, David Walliams and Roald Dahl' Freya aged 10 years.
'A gripping read, Caroline - grown-up!

Dai Monday is being bullied, but what does he expect with a name like Die! He doesn't think life can get any worse and then it does. What's hidden in Conwy Castle that has all the crooks in a frenzy and where does the ghost of King Arthur come into it all?

Hey Here's my review.

An entertaining middle grade fiction book that kept me engaged. The informal first person narrative suited the book. I found the main character quirky and likeable. I was curious to see how everything worked out for him. 

The majority of the story was a paranormal mystery, with the bullying issue forming a strong subplot. It would be a good book to read aloud to a younger child to prompt a discussion about bullying.
