The action is never less than rousing, and the pages turn as quickly as the Onion at full sail, but there' still lots of room for humour and proper character development too. Great fun. * Lovereading4kids.co.uk *
Full of charm, humour, magic and monsters. Ace! * Imogen White, author of the Rose Muddle Mysteries *
