Martin Booth, has, in my opinion done it again! This book was a fantastic read, I could not put it down, the moment I read the first page I was hooked. Consequently I locked myself away and spoke to nonone until I had finshed! The book is beautifully written and with narrative that you can lose your imagination in. It feels,at times that you are actually there experiencing the adventure with Pip and her brother- it's hard not to rush to the next page. There were no weak parts to the book and although this is written as a childrens book I defy any adult who reads this to say that they did not enjoy it! I wait eagerly for the next installment!
