The story of an evil tea company and their plot to take over the world!

Sky Swift lives happily with her mother. She enjoys the simpler things in life like drinking tea, munching biscuits, oh and sniffing everything.

One day evil pays a visit. Her world has changed forever. Stalked by an evil tea bag and chased by an evil tea company that will stop at nothing to get her. They want her for their wicked plan.

Sky is in trouble. She needs help. But who can she turn to?

How much mischief could one little tea bag get into?

This was such an entertaining tale. The funniest scenes were the ones that described how evil tea bags think and act when no one is around to observe what they’re doing.I chucked my way through all of those sections. The descriptions of how tea bags behave were just plain silly at times, but they were silly in a good way. I definitely wouldn’t have expected anything less from a book called McSorely’s Evil Tea!

There were many punctuation errors. It was distracting to have to stop and reread sentences so often to figure out what they were trying to say. A few of them could have had so many different meanings that I was never quite sure which one the author was trying to get across to the audience. Had this not happened, I would have chosen a higher rating.

The dialogue fit in well with how the plot was written. All of the characters said exactly what they needed to say when they needed to say it. I liked the fact that there wasn’t any extra padding on their conversations. This was a good choice for a story that moved as quickly as this one does. There wasn’t any need for the characters to speak more than they did, so I’m glad that the author recognized this and allowed them to do other things with their time instead.

I’d recommend McSorely’s Evil Tea to anyone in the mood for something zany.
