Angie Sage does not forget to add the lovable wit found in her Septimus Heap books, so it was a very enjoyable read But I found that I couldn t pore over it like I did with the other books mostly the pages are presented as information, not as stories, so it seemed tiring to read everything in one go.
Unlike supplementary books in other series, The Magykal Papers does not really add any new story Some parts are backstories what happened with the characters and the places before the events in the first book And I m not talking about deep backstories mostly they are already included in the original books, just in less detail Some parts are about what the characters were thinking doing during certain events in the books While interesting to know, they are nothing new and I would ve expected that those characters were thinking doing those things anyway Basically, most of what I read here were small, additional details to stories I already know Of course, there were some exceptions What I liked was how the news clippings and pamphlets made the Septimus Heap worldvivid Reading the book felt like going on a tour of the Castle, which was really fun XD Readers get to learn about the notable places in the Castle, and even meet some new characters relating to those places or I just forgot they were mentioned in the books.
Interesting and fun, but doesn t give any added insight into the world of Magyk Also I m kinda disappointed that there wasn t a page about Spitfyre lol In any case, I don t think it s a must read for Septimus Heap fans it tells you stuff you already know if you ve read the first four books Pretty much it paraphrases the series While it s fun to read characters diary entries and look at beautiful, detailed illustrations of certain places you can t find on the maps in the books, it s a real downer to find that Angie Sage couldn t have used the extra time she had writing this book and the paper to include things beyond what you could infer from the books, such as what J.
K Rowling did with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them It s books like these that make me wish Dubai had a decent library so I wouldn t waste my money on books I know I m not going to be re perusing very often.
I forgot I had this book I read it years ago and loved it Felt like I was smacked in the medieval era Only problem I have not yet read the series for this book.
Cute and lovingly, as nice as the other heap books, with s lot of illustrations and nice guides of the chaste, a peak in diaries of several important persons and some biografies.
Sometimes a series can lead to fun, entertaining or informational add on books Sometimes they can t The Septimus Heap series is definitely one that could The book design was awesome and everything was written in the same tone as the books so that if you read the books, you can recognize the characters because they are exactly as you have come to expect them to be It s not a book that can be read in one sitting, though Because there isn t a storyline, it s most enjoyed when read a page or two at a time My only complaint is that this book had to change my mental images of the Heap family The only one that was drawn as I picture him is Simon It s funny how we can all read the same story but imagine it so differently My favorite part focused on the Ramblings I loved it This was such a lovely add on to the Septimus Heap Series The book is all done with beautiful illustrations on glossy paper, and it gives a great insight to some extra things that might be going on when Septimus isn t fighting against his enemies It contained diary entries from some of the main characters, a detailed description of how magyk came to be and other cute pages, which added to the imagination This book really helps you envision the town and the palace and the ramblings Definitely worth getting if you re a fan of Septimus Heap But, it s also a great book to get if you re considering starting the series There aren t too many spoilers in there, and it gives a direct understanding of the characters and their roles in the books.
0001 each It s all in full color, and includes bios and portraits of main characters, maps of various locations, brochures and pamphlets about various Castle attractions, spells, and diary excerpts For anyone who s ever wanted to go live in the world of Septimus Heap, this book will be a treat.
My teenage daughter and I just finished this It has been our most recent bedtime story The Magykal Papers are a published collection of pamphlets, journal entries, telegram like messages, to do lists, and restaurant reviews from the world of Septimus Heap Although the book has no plot, per se, it is filled with all sorts of inside jokes that readers of the series will find hilarious unconverted future fans will simply scratch their heads, wondering, What is that supposed to mean This is an amusing addition to the series for those who already know and love or hate, as the case may be its characters.
