“It is the sort of story that every child should have read to them”
Pie Corbett, Junior Education
“The story remains a good adventure for the eights or nines.”
Newbury Weekly News
“This story is absolutely ideal for those readers who are developing reading stamina and moving on to full chapter books, but there is huge visual support offered in the wonderful monotone illustrations on most pages.”
“It's an ideal book for reading aloud and leaves the end of each chapter on a cliffhanger.”
North Cornwall Advertiser
