Review by Patricia Bell for Readers Favorite
Ludlow Lost by Kate Robinson Dunne is a children’s fantasy about an eleven year old boy, (who is small for his age)
named Ludlow, who gets kidnapped by a fairy, and a couple of goblins and brought to a ship which is captained
by a banshee named Morag. Ludlow is taken on quite a journey and learns more than a few things about
mythical creatures, or should I say, creatures that humans do not believe in. Throughout the tale, Ludlow meets a
fairy, goblins, a mermaid, a banshee, and ghost water. During his adventure to break free from the clutches of the
evil banshee, Ludlow learns quite a bit about creatures that humans do not believe in. He also learns that many
imes, things aren’t always as they seem.
This fast pace tale by Kate Robinson Dunne is a brilliant and exciting read from cover to cover. The adventure begins
from the very first page and does not end throughout the story. I absolutely love how the story is narrated in such
detail that the reader gets a personal connection with each of the characters. Adhair (Harry) is my favorite. She’s a
fairy, who, for a little thing, has a lot of grit. She made me giggle more than once. In short, Ludlow Lost by
Kate Robinson Dunne is my all-time favorite children’s story. Much applause to Kate for her amazing imagination
and ability to bring characters to life in a special sort of way. I hope to read many more adventures from this author.
