Description - Darius Bell and the Glitter Pool by Odo Hirsch

The Bell family's ancestors were showered with honours, gifts and grants of land. In exchange, they have bestowed a Gift, once every 25 years, on the town. The Gifts have ranged from a statue to a bell tower with stained-glass windows, but now it's Darius's father's turn - and there is no money for an impressive gift. It looks as though a wheelbarrow full of vegetables is the best they can do. Darius is determined to preserve the family honour, and when an earthquake reveals a glorious cave, with the most beautiful minerals lining the walls, he thinks he's found the answer.

A wonderfully satisfying novel - fun to read, thought-provoking and wise.

Book Review: Darius Bell and the Glitter Pool by Odo Hirsch - Reviewed by (26 Nov 2011)

Darius Bell and the Glitter pool is another amazing story from Odo Hirsch, a world favourite author. It begins the magical story of Darius and his family and throughout every page, every moment I was captivated, drawn totally in by the unique writing and the way the book grabs you and makes you feel as if you are actually there, beside Darius at every moment... it is a truly magical experiance and not something you get to feel in many books, only the best. Darius Bell is quite possibly my favourite of Hirsch's characters, his kooky but loving family, his adventures, the glitter pool- they are all things that got my pluse racing and made me find out what would happen next...
