Very well written and clear; a good mystery and just right to engage young minds- and older ones too!
Interesting and well written title
The start of an intriguing journey for young inquisitive minds.The book is extremely well written and the series should prove to be both exciting and educational for young children. I am passing the book to my grandchildren aged seven and nine and am ordering the second in the series.
What an excellent book, I loved it!
This is a wonderful story for children, full of action, adventure and humour. The character of the cat is adorable!
My granddaughter loved it
A very promising new children's book
