This is definitely not just a book for children, adults can easily relate to everything going on. From the very beginning I got very involved in the story, imagining my holidays whizzing by on the ski slopes! David Robertson obviously understands children very well and knows what makes them tick. His knowledge of the ski slopes and the challenges of dangerous runs also draws the reader into the joys and the dangers of skiing. Once started, I couldn;t put the book down until I was finished. A really good story - one to be enjoyed by both children and adults!
