    1. BuchgestaltungDie Aufmachung ist einfach zauberhaft und genau richtig für ein Kinderbuch. Die Ilustratorin Eva Schönhoff-Davidov ist spätestens seit der Silber-Reihe sicher jedem ein Begriff. Sie hat ein tolles Auge für Details, die immer Buch-bezogen sind und die Gestaltung ist ihr wirklich gelungen. Auch die Übersetzung des Titels passt meiner Meinung nach viel besser, als das Original. Das englische Cover sieht auch gar nicht so süß und witzig aus, wie das Buch ist, deshalb geht der Pu [...]


    2. *Worum geht's?*Poppy Pym wurde als Baby aus einem Hut gezaubert, gleich nach einem beleidigten Huhn. Seitdem lebt sie im Wanderzirkus von Madame Pym, wo sie nicht nur Zuckerwatte und Popcorn zum Frühstück bekommt, sondern auch jede Menge verrückter Kunststücke lernt. Poppy ist überglücklich mit ihrem bunten, wunderlichen Zirkusleben – bis Madame Pym kurz vor ihrem zwölften Geburtstag beschließt, dass Poppy normale Sachen unter normalen Mitschülern lernen muss. Poppy ist davon zunächs [...]



    3. Actual rating: 3,5 stars.Väldigt härlig humor och roliga karaktärer. Gillar hela upplägget med internatskola och mysteriet. Dock så tycker jag att den påminner onödigt mycket om Harry Potter, var det t.ex. nödvändigt med fyra elevhem och alla har varsin fågel som symbol? Det hade ju ingen betydelse för handlingen. Nåja, hursomhelst så är den riktig charmig och jag är sugen på att läsa nästa bok i serien. Mer utförlig recension kommer.


    4. Poppy Pym och Faraos förbannelse var ett oväntat recensionsexemplar från Modernista, men ändå en bok jag varit nyfiken på sedan jag först såg den i deras katalog. Förväntningarna var lite halvhöga, sådär, och jag fann att jag gillade denna bok mycket.Handlingen var supercharmig. Jag gillar hur det känns lite tvärtemot (precis som Poppy beskriver det), att Poppy är uppväxt på cirkusen, och nu ska gå i en vanlig skola. Jag gillade mysteriebiten, trots att det var rätt lätt att [...]


    5. Beautiful. Wonderful. Entertaining. Adventurous and down right fantastic !!Where has Laura Wood been all my life !Here writing style is fabulous and witty. How it's written as the main character poppy adds a great deal of entertainment to the book. The way she added and built the characters in. I was wondering if I was a little to old for this book when I first picked it up but seriously if you like a fantastic, quick and adventurous read PLEASE GET THIS BOOK !Kids and adults need to be reading [...]


    6. What a fun book! It was full of intriguing characters and an exciting mystery and fun alliteration. Seriously, I just love saying "Poppy Pym."Also, I got to meet the author, Laura Wood, and she was absolutely lovely.


    7. Do you have a young friend? Buy them this book! They'll love you for it.Brilliant read, cracking story and great characters.


    8. Originally posted here: heatherreviews/2016/09/05_______________________Poppy Pym is exactly the kind of book that I would have picked up as a kid when I was trying to devour every book in my local library. It has everything that I loved – and still love – about kids books. Not only is Poppy’s voice fun and easy to read, there’s also some fantastic illustrations, maps and newspaper articles dotted throughout the story too, making it all the more engaging to read.Poppy Pym grew up in a ci [...]


    9. A brilliant boarding school mystery novel with the added fun and bonkers madness of the circus. As mad a bowl of crunchy nut.



    10. Det här var en riktigt mysig och charmig läsning om Poppy Pym, hennes familj och vänner. Ser fram emot att läsa nästa bok. (view spoiler)[Fast det som jag inte förstod var varför det var så miss Susans danseri var så hemligt.n det utgjorde ju en del av mysteriet (hide spoiler)]






    11. Erster Satz:"<>, rief Madame Pym und klatschte in die Hände, während wir etwa zehn Meter über dem Boden kopfüber am Trapez hingen."Meine Rezension:Schon allein die Covergestaltung lässt einen ins Schwärmen kommen. Es zeigt Protagonistin Poppy wie sie aufgeregt und voller Energie ist. Im Hintergrund erkennt man ein Zirkuszelt, das Poppy ihr Zuhause nennt. All die anderen Abbildungen gehören mti zum Zirkus und zeigen, dass es in Poppys Leben recht kunterbunt zugeht.Poppy ist ein junge [...]

    14. I'd like to introduce you to my new best friend, Poppy Pym. Most children dream of running away to the circus but Poppy was actually brought up in one. Discovered in the magical top hat of Marvin the Magician Poppy narrowly avoids being called Tomato for the rest of her life and is adopted by Madame Pym and the rest of the circus gang. Fast forward ten years and it's decided that it's time for Poppy to give up her (circus) homeschooling and go to a proper school. Step forward Miss Baxter and Sai [...]


    15. Boken lockade mig direkt när såg den i bokaffären, rött med guldiga inslag, var bara tvungen att köpa boken efter jag läste recensionerna om boken! Jag fall för den lättlästa och härliga berättelsen om Poppy Pym som växer upp på en cirkus och ska börja på en skola i den vanliga världen. Det finns många roliga och spännande inslag i boken vilket fick mig att läsa boken ganska snabbt för att den var så charmig och rolig att läsa!Jag tycker om handlingen i boken väldigt mycke [...]


    16. Well this book was a fun read, and a fun mix of different themes! We've got a boarding school, a circus, a mystery and some Ancient Egypt thrown in there all blended together to make an entertaining read! You all know I can be lured by anything involving Ancient Egypt and I loved the echoes in this book from real history. If you don't know what I'm talking about take a look at Tutankhamen and his "curse", you might find it interesting. Poppy Pym was an easy read, and fast paced, easily read in o [...]


    17.

She arrives a mystery and thinks that when the circus folk decide to send her to a boarding school she is at the end of her ad [...]


    18. An outstanding mystery book, complete with a fabulously unique cast of characters and a great plot that will keep readers on the edge of their seats!I really enjoyed the story behind the Pharaoh's Curse, I've always been fascinated by Ancient Egpyt and always gravitate towards those displays in any museum I'm in, so it was brilliant to read a story that mixed elements of this in with a cracking mystery. I liked the boarding school setting, it was reminiscent of classic children's stories, and th [...]


    19. Orphan girl Poppy has been with the circus since she was pulled from the magicians hat. Now she is 11 they want her to attend boarding school and meet friends her own age. An Egyptian display arrived with a curse attached to the ruby scarab. Can Poppy & her new friends solve the mystery? This is a fun mystery for 9-12s


    20. Even though Poppy Pym is predictable, I really enjoyed the story. It's a cute and charming and really cozy read.My full review in Swedish: iHeartFantasy



    21. I read Poppy Pym with my grandson. We both loved it. All the characters really sprang to life.I can't wait to read the next one! Will there be a next one? I hope so!!


    22. a wonderful mix of school story mixed with the fun of the circus and the mystery of Ancient Egypt and a curse. Action packed with a great heroine, this is only the start of a series I hope?
