About book: A strident, staccato percussion struck up briefly as tobacco tins filled with odd buttons were dumped upon the trestle tables followed by the clatter of cotton reels pulled from sewing baskets.

Absolutely loved this book and I can't wait to start the RAven's Knot!!

What I loved about this book was how Jarvis integrated mythology and history into this work of fiction.

My only minor issue was the character of Ted, who was from New York, actually read more Cockney to me until Jarvis got the swing of it near the end of the book. Other than that, Perfection!! This book is wonderful!!

I read the book several years ago, and just reread, thoroughly enjoyed, both times. I am now reading the second book in the trilogy.

Loved the book!

The Wyrd Museum Series is exceptional. Having said that, this opening volume of the three books is the one that pleases me the least. The adventures that the eleven-year-old protagonist has, the way he is literally carried away so as to change the outcome of someone else's story -- this is the attention-grabbing part of the book.
It is only when you go back to re-read this first book, possibly again and again, that you notice all the details that seemed superfluous and confusing the first time. Much in The Woven Path is put before the reader, only to be whisked out of sight when Neil, the main character, is swept away on his adventure. The first time you read it, you wonder what the point is.
You return to this book, however, with some grasp of the big picture for all three books, and then you can see how carefully the entire series was built from the foundation up. Certain details prove vital to the apocalyptic climax of the third and final book, which goes into territory that the first book only hints at; the World War II adventure is worlds removed from what happens at the end.
It made me stop to think: what was the purpose of Neil's experience of the London Blitz really? In context with a series-sized premise of Wagner's Ring Cycle without the Ring? I think now that the World War II caper was all about introducing Neil to the mythic dimension, using his familiar England and relatively recent history to give him an experience of being part of something much greater than himself. The irrevocable changes that result in Neil's character are needed before he heads for Volume III's Twilight of the Gods.

I'm a sucker for big fat kids' fantasy books (big fat adult fantasy books tend to throw me off) and I picked up "Woven Path" with great anticipation. I was not disappointed. Robin Jarvis, who wrote the great fantasy book "Dark Portal," weaves an intriguing fantasy story.
Neil Chapman is "our hero," a young man who comes to the Wyrd Museum (a pun on Weird?), a rather grimy and unimpressive building in the East End. Creepy hardly describes the odd museum, run by three old ladies who are... uh, creepy. Who are they? What are they?
Better brush up on Greek and Norse myths, as these bizarre old ladies are the Fates, who weave a cloth composed of the life-threads of all the people of the world into their future. When Neil steps into the Separate Collection, he is swept through time and space to London. In WW2. A scramble will result before Neil can hope to return, with some odd new friends...
The idea of a magical place being run by the Fates is an intriguing and original idea indeed, and Jarvis does it justice. The three are suitably creepy and strange, and the inner mood of their museum matches their personalities.
Neil is a better-than-usual book hero, a very realistic person with great reactions and some very good lines. And the character of Ted was sweet, nuff zed. Jarvis skillfully manages to make Ted believable and sympathetic, not juvenile or stupid.
The writing style is snappy where it needs to be and drawn out where it needs to be, with pretty good descriptions and characterization. I got confused a few times in this book, where the plot took a twist and I inadvertantly missed it, but the story flows well overall.
A wonderful read, and I cannot wait for "Raven's Knot"!

This book is about 11-year-old Neil Chappman, whose parents just recently got divorced and he now lives with his father. The father got a job as a caretaker at a creepy museum. Because the father hadn't much money, Neil and his father had to live at the museum. While exploring the museum, Neil got sent back in time where he had to save the lives of 4 people.

I liked this book because of the way the author used descriptive language, as well as the amazing characters that the author developed. This is a great book for anyone who loves fantasy and adventure stories, but it has some scary bits in it so it's probably not for little kids.

Robin Jarvis' Wyrd Museum Trilogy is a fantastic blend of Fantasy and Horror with interesting characters and a great story line.
Jarvis starts his trilogy with the slightly more easy going, "The Woven Path" which is an exiting journey into the the past life of an old teddy bear. Neil Chapmann and his family move into the Wyrd Museam as his father takes a job as a caretaker. While exploring Neil comes across a room filled with mysterious treasures and meets Ted, the reincarnation of a world war two American pilot. The two of them are sent back in time by Ursula Webster one of the three sisters who own the museum. They end up in London during world war two. Unfortunatly an ancient power has been unleashed on the city and Neil and Ted only have a little time to finish their quest before the demon finds them.
This is a great book although it may be frightening for smaller children.
This was the first time that I had read a Robin Jarvis book. From the moment that I picked the book up I was captivated by it and I could not bear to put it down. The struggle of the Ned, (sent to find Edie Dorkins in the time of the blitz) with his new friend, Ted, (who had been trapped inside a teddy for years) was heart warming. I have now followed the plight of the Webster sisters, Edie and Ned right through to the end of the third book and I enjoyed all three books thoroughly. I am now searching libraries and book shops for other Robin Jarvis titles. Read this book and you will be as captivated as I was. The Wyrd Museum never has a dull moment.
