it was amazing

Recommended for: children aged 9+ (confident readers)
Read in January, 2009

This is a great children's mystery/thriller/adventure story. The language is very clever with puns and other plays on words scattered throughout the book. The four central characters are two boys and two girls and there is a great combination of adventure and relational themes to keep both boys and girls interested.

There are some great themes for discussion with this novel as well as the book simply being a fun, entertaining read.
