Brilliant, funny, clever and kind
on 26 September 2001
I loved this book, because it made me laugh AND it tlaks about things that matter too. Saffy's a really brilliant and likeable person, and the rest of her family is fab too. Cadmium, Indigo and Rose are all named after paints, because their batty parents are both artists. Saffron is named after a colour too, but can't find her name on the colour chart, which is how she finds out she is adopted. Saffy has been left something special by her real grandfather, and now she has to find it - along with the help of her adopted family. I learnt a lot about polar expeditions, driving lessons and revising for exams, as well as laughing all the time. I do hope there are going to be more adventures for Saffy?
