Threads by Sophia Bennett

I absolutely adored Threads by Sophia Bennett, this is the second time I have read but I still loved it as much as the first time I read it.

This book is mainly about fashion and also the Invisible Children living horrible lives in countries where terrible things happen. Threads is about four girls Nonie, who tells the story, Jenny, Edie and Crow. They all have completely different personalities. Nonie has always wanted to work for some massive fashion designer(even if it's just making the tea) and she wears some pretty weird clothes. Jenny has recently starred in a Hollywood movie called Kid Code. Edie wants to save the world and get lots of CV points to get to Harvard University. Crow is a girl of twelve who comes from Uganda and she draws and makes fantastic clothes.

Jenny and Nonie first spot Crow in their favourite museum in London (the Victoria and Albert Museum or the V and A) wearing pink fairy wings and a tutu sketching clothes. But when Crow is provided with the right materials she can make amazing dresses and clothes and even ends up making them for celebrities.

This is a great book for anyone who loves fashion or just wants a great, interesting read. The book is also about the Invisible Children who live in countries where there are terrible wars and they have to walk every night to find safety. I absolutely loved this book so I give it a 9 out of 10.


  1. Sounds like a great book, Dot - something a bit different. I'm so impressed with how much you're reading. Do you ever eat or sleep?

    I've never read The Iron Man either and think I should.

    I love your blog :o)


  2. This sounds like a great book Dot. I think I would enjoy reading this.

  3. Hi Dot. Thank you so much for this review of Threads. I'm thrilled you enjoyed it so much and hope you enjoy the sequel when it comes out in May. Not long to wait now ... I see you also read White Boots at the start of the year. It's an old favourite of mine! sophia xxx
