A brilliant read. Fast-paced and humourous adventure book. An amazing line-up of characters, the monkey was my favourite as he was very silly! I really enjoyed this book and I'm sure anyone else who reads this amazing book will do so too. Jason, age 9.
I read this book to see if it was suitable reading for my son (above!) as he's a very fluent reader but sometimes struggles with more adult content in teenage fiction. This book was recommended by a friend and I greatly enjoyed it myself - I read it in one sitting when I was supposed to be working! There's some great characterisation and plenty of action to keep the reader engaged. There's also a generous helping of humour and some very twisty twists along the way.
