4.0 out of 5 stars Witty and entertaining - a perfect kid's book. 1 Jun 2008
Format:Paperback
Ignore the imbecile whose review will be with mine. The Falcon's Malteaser is a great read: it moves at a fast pace, with humour and drama in equal measure. It is aimed at young children, so the writing is relatively simple, but that is no bad thing.

Overall, a fun and enjoyable book, especially for younger readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Falcon's Malteser audio book 20 April 2012
By Ruthiet
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was a brilliant success on a car journey to France with 8 year old son, and daughters 20 and 18. We were all hooked and it made the journey pass much faster. I wasn't sure when I bought it if our son was going to be too young for it, but in fact he wanted to listen again on the way home - and favoured it over DVD's or playing on his DS!!

Wonderful comic novel, full of allusions to, and parodies of, detective films and stories. Like the Simpsons it can be enjoyed by adults on one level, whilst children will still enjoy it without any knowledge of what is being sent up. I read this to my children, 11 and 8, and they both loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Legendary!!! 13 July 2012
Format:Paperback
Legendary!!! This is a part action, part detective book featuring two brothers called Tim and Nick who start a detective agency. Tim is the older brother and he is not very smart. Nick is younger and he is more streetwise.

A dwarf called Johnny Naples leaves a package with them. You might think that is easy to look after a box of maltesers, although after you've read this book you will have a whole different way of looking at a box of maltesers.

The thing that Nick and Tim don't realise is that a whole bunch of criminals are going after the box and just guess what kinds of things that Nick gets into! You may think that the box of maltesers is just an ordinary box; but what Tim and Nick find out is that the barcode on the box is a key to a safe full of...
Sorry - you'll have to read the book!

All in all, this is an exciting and funny book, full of mysteries. So read it NOW!!!

The Falcon's Malteser is far from high literature as it comprises of many shallow characters, a thirteen-year old who speaks like Humphrey Bogart and a mystery story that centres... Read more
