'Those McIntyres are nothing but trouble!' When the McIntyre family moves in next door, Eva is intrigued - it is the first interesting thing to happen for ages. But her ever protective Dad - even more protective since Eva's mum died - does not agree. And the McIntyres are certainly noisy! But Eva is curious about Jamie, who she often sees on the roof of his garden shed, escaping the family chaos.

Then Eva gets to know Jamie a bit better. And when he is accused of vandalising the local park, Eva is sure he didn't do it. It is up to Eva to stick up for him - but then Jamie disappears. Eva is now in a race against time, which snowballs into a helterskelter race with a 'borrowed' ice cream van, lots of irate keep-fit enthusiasts and lashings of ice-cream!

A warm, funny adventure about sticking up for your friends.

I was inspired to read Elen Caldecott's Operation Eiffel Tower when I saw her talk about it at the Edinburgh book festival and was as entranced as all the eight-to-twelves . . . some scenes are funny (the children's attempted forgery is hilarious); others are poignant, particularly their visit to a B&B when they can't think what to say to their dad - Julia Donaldson, Guardian Online

Perfect for Jacqueline Wilson fans - Bookseller

Funny . . . poignant . . . hilarious - Julia Donaldson, Guardian

‘Ordinary children tackle some quite extraordinary mysteries in Elen Caldecott’s Marsh Road series. These lively, warm-hearted stories of family, friends and adventure are a real delight’ - Katherine Woodfine, author of The Mystery of the Clockwork Sparrow

“The importance of teamwork”

A lovely book about friendship, sticking up for each other and second chances. A good mix of funny, thoughtful and some rollercoaster action. Ideal for 8 - 12 year olds.
