I enjoyed reading this book and guessing what Murdoch would do next — Gracie Hurley, aged 7, Kidaround.biz
Themes: ideas, lots of mishaps, mischievous people, disappointment on learning the truth, happiness when doing something right, several smiles, a few 'oh no' moments, and yes I did need a tissue — Nayu's reading corner
A lovely story which bridges the gap from picture book to chapter book perfectly, with its colourful layout and easily read enjoyable story. — Parents in Touch, Parents in Touch
