Mom read this in hardcover when expecting me in 1944. This story was so intriguing. I read it several times, beginning at about 10 years old. A wonderful, fanciful concept - just press your wrist and no one can see you. Clothing was a problem, but Scarlet was nothing if not inventive. As camp as this was, I was delighted with her sleuthing capabilities.

I found this book in my grandmother's attic one summer when I was about 12 and loved every word of it. Grandma let me take it home and I still have it today. I reread it as an adult and would have to agree with the person who called it camp, but Scarlet was in a class by herself back in the '40s.

This book took me forever to finish because it was so boring. The 'voice' that tells Scarlet the future is stupid and annoying. Also every person talks out loud to themselves which is strange.
