Review quote

"A witty and gripping little story" Mail on Sunday "This story couldn't get more action-packed if it tried... This whole entertaining story is just what you'd expect from Sandi Toksvig, and the ending is too funny to give away. Aimed at new readers, it will appeal to the primary age range as a story told or an individual read" School Librarian "Toksvig's tall tale is appealingly brisk" Independent on Sunday "Great fun for new readers." Good Book Guide "Great fun with plenty of action, large print and lots of comic black and white sketches" Eastern Daily PRess
