that one star review is totally unfair on this book - it's about the delivery!
this is SUCH a fantastic book - it encourages kids to read and i still have fond memories of it many years later.
a cult classic!

This item was bought as a gift and it brought back childhood memories. This was the intention of this gift so a good purchase. I have also read it to see what all the fuss was about and I can see why this book was a fond memory of the past, It clearly get children thinking and actively taking part in the plot, even if some of it is clearly dated and wouldn't be put into children's stories these days (for example one of the suspects in their mystery story line, clearly smoking a cigarette while cooking).

I read this book when I was a child (over 35 years ago!!) and just loved it so much. Not only was it a great story but it really got the reader involved by making them look for clues in each of the pictures...the Adventures of the Black Hand Gang is a great blend of 'Where's Wally' meets 'The Famous Five'

In an era of 'computer games' it sadly will be lost on so many modern children but if you can prise them away from their electronic devices then this would certainly get them interested in books. I bought this and the sequel for my niece and nephew (ages 9 and 6) and I really hope that they enjoy them as much as I did....in fact, I can't wait to sit down with a glass of wine and relive a great time in my childhood.

Recommended for the young and young at heart!!
