Reviews

Echoes of past adventure books ring out throughout the pages...but it has cleverly been brough right up-to-date for today's young readers to get immersed in the tale for maximum enjoyment.
LINCOLNSHIRE ECHO||...a thoroughly good read and well worth buying to pack in your suitcase this summer.
THE BOOKBAG||...a magical story, filled with mystery and suspense. I recommend it to anyone between 8 and 14 and hope you enjoy every page as much as I did.
