This book is delightful and a real page-turner! There are many twists and turns in the tale and I didn't see them coming, which obviously added to the enjoyment of the book.

The illustrations are wonderful and really add to the overall pleasure of this book aimed primarily at youngsters, but can certainly be enjoyed by older readers too!

When young cousin Felicity, a perfectly coiffed and manicured city sophisticate, comes to Misty Point farm, home to Daniel and his sister Sophie, for a visit, strange things start to happen, beginning with the sudden death one night of all the chooks (aka chickens). Meanwhile, a hitchhiker named Patrick shows up on their doorstep and, in true rural Kiwi style, is welcomed straight into the bosom of the family. Felicity is all agog over this jovial newcomer and falls all over herself trying to ga ...more

I really enjoyed reading this rural adventure story set in New Zealand. At the same time that it felt so local, it also brought back childhood memories of running wild on my grandparents farm in Brazil. There were so many adventures to be had without TVs and c0mputers. I passed the book on to my teenage daughters and am curious to see what urban European teenagers think of this kiwi (yet universal) story.

This book reminds me of summers I used to spend with my cousins at my grandma's country home. There are adventures and important life lessons learned for the characters in this book. The kids learn that everything and everyone aren't the way they may seem. I recommend this book for ages 9 and older. Some of the New Zealand terms for the younger set might be confusing, but he adds a glossary in there to help out.

I remember when I was a child and I spent my time with my cousin.
It was wonderful. It would be great if we could do that again. This book tells us adventures and the problems they have.
Fears and hopes we all have at that age.
I recommend this book for children and people like me who want to improve my English.

A delicious slice of childhood in New Zealand. This author does a great job of making the reader nostalgic for their childhood and the imagination children have. Funny and full of adventure!

Daniel and Sophie's only memory of their cousin Felicity is of a little girl who sat under a table, wailing at the top of her lungs, in the middle of a family wedding. That little girl bears very little resemblance to the blonde, nose-pierced and perfectly made up young woman who steps off the bus from north Auckland and back into their lives. With a sneer at their bumpkin ways and total contempt for their small farm in Misty Point, Felicity makes it clear that she sees the visit as punishment a ...more

It's fantabulous! (but then I would say that)

Here's a review from Amazon:

I first came across this book on a critiquing website and although I don't usually read kids books I found it really funny. The book conjured up fond memories of a New Zealand childhood - when summer seemed to go on forever and it never seemed to rain, when kids were able to play outdoors and have adventures; when parents didn't feel the need to over parent and children weren't wasting their childhood playing endless comput

A children's adventure book in the style of Enid Blyton or Roald Dahl-lite, this is a tale of country New Zealand siblings and their urban cousin Felicity being drawn into a mild mystery surrounding their farm.

Occasionally funny, poignant and intriguing, this is a great story for children and adults alike, if in need of a little editing.

*I received a free copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.

“It was the first time her eyes had really met mine and to be honest I think there was more warmth between the lamb chops in the freezer." Daniel meeting Felicity in Cousin Felicity and the Eels of Misty Point.” 1 likes
“Sensing that this stranger was not the dangerous kind, and being the caring, big-hearted dog that he had built his reputation on, Lucky decided that a good dose of tongue licking would put matters right. However, in a twist of bad timing, unluckily for Lucky, he landed his lick just as Felicity rolled over onto her back. So, instead of a friendly lick across the ears as he intended, Lucky’s long slobbery, pink tongue made a trail from Felicity’s chin to her cherry red lips and up to her forehead.
‘AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGHHHH!”
