Janie and Benjamin have promised to protect and ancient, maigical book, the Pharmacopoeia. It belongs to a mysterious apothecary.
Now they're on the run- the apothecary has disappeared, and Russian spies will stop at nothing to get the book.
Can Janie and Benjamin unlock the secrets of the Pharmacopoeia? What strange powers do the apothecary's elixirs hold? And can Janie and Benjamin save him in time to fulfil his impossible plan?
I thoroughly enjoyed this book because I learnt so many new and interesting things in a great way! This is a suspenseful and engaging read and you never know what is going to happen next! This is a great fantasy book that has ways of making you think that things that could never happen really can happen! 5/5!!
the Apocathery is a captivating read. it is book you can't put down. Janie lives happily in Los angeles until her parents announce that they have to move. They move to london where they live in a old apartment. Janie doesn't like it in london. her school is ok but she doesn't like being the new girl. After school one day her dad takes her to the local acocathery to get some homesickness medication. The apothercary is lovely but it was his son that captured her attention. They soon became friends. Soon after Benjamin's father is kidnapped and they realise that he is no ordinary apocathery. When he goes he leaves behind a book the pharmacopia. The russian spies are after them should they run and leave this prescious book or should they hide. I highly recommend it.
The apothecary by Maile Meloy. It's 1952 and the Scott family has moved unexpectedly from Los Angeles to London. Janie feels uncomfortable in her strange new school, until the local apothecary promises her a remedy for homesickness. But the real cure is meeting the apothecary's son Benjamin, a curiously defiant boy who dreams of becoming a spy.
Benjamin's father is no ordinary apothecary, and when he's kidnapped, Benjamin and Janie find themselves entrusted with his sacred book, the Pharmacopoeia. And it seems that Russian spies are intent on getting their hands on it.
