The Wind Singer

Author: William Nicholson
Reviewer: Grade 8

The Wind Singer, by William Nicholson, is about Kestrel and Bowman. They live in Armanth, a city based on a rigid system where the only way to be accepted is to be better than everyone else. Kestrel Hath, tired of this system, decides to hold a school-room rebellion. This starts a chain of events that leads Kestrel, Bowman, and their tag-a-long friend, Mumpo, to leave Armanth and search for the key to the Wind Singer to make Armanth right again. The Wind Singer is an excellent book. Its original plot keeps you spellbound throughout the entire book and makes it impossible to put down. Out of 10 stars, I’d give The Wind Singer an 8.5.
