It's sure to be a hit amongst those who love edge of the seat drama and junior heroes...
A thrilling Second World War adventure set in Sicily, where his mother grew up, this latest book heralds a new writing path for Felice.
Robyn Courtney, Fraser Coast Chronicle, Qld
It's a rollicking read, with a great setting and action aplenty. The tension is maintained throughout and the ending is very satisfying. In a departure from his previous series, Specky Magee, Sporty Kids and Andy Roid, Felice Arena has moved into a very different world - I'd call it accessible history for kids told via a fabulous tale. There are some great touches with the dual English and Italian chapter headings as a well as a smattering of Italian words and phrases - always well explained in context throughout the book. the Sicilian setting is beautifully described and adds to the atmosphere. Highly recommended.
