5.0 out of 5 stars Another super book by Caroline Lawrence, 20 Jun 2012
Hot on the heels of the deadly desperadoes PK is back solving another mystery in American wild west. As a 41 year old reading out loud a bedtime story to a nine year old, I'm captivated and every night I'm caught reading past my sons lights out, much to his delight and my wifes dismay! For my son PK is simply awesome, the story is rich in history and detail and invites a near constant stream of questions and observations. Go Caroline Lawrence!

Hard to review here as this is a re-print of the second book, Red Leach, with a different name and jacket for the American market. Very frustrating but well done Amazon for taking it back

5.0 out of 5 stars still entralling in 2011, 2 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
my eight year old cannot get enough of e nesbit and she has easily replaced xfm and radio 4 on car journeys. this lot, the famous five and the secret seven. the best parts are when my son comes out with famous five-isms in every day speach.
