It's a fun, lively read, with plenty of vivid description to bring the story to life. — PARENTS IN TOUCH
What a delightful debut for a magical new series for the 7 to 9 year olds. I loved this book from the first sentence. I felt like I had whooshed down a helter skelter into the magical world of Enid Blyton. It took me a couple of hours to read it and I was left wanting more from this enchanting world. — SERENDIPITY REVIEWS
