Top critical review
Great storyline - just too short!
on 21 July 2013
The book follows Joe and his friends in an adventure concernig some stolen money from years before.
The plot is very interesting - it's nice to have it set in the '50s! However, it's too short. The plot could be developed further and the characters could do with more description.
It is also a bit simple - more suited to 7-10 year-olds, as well as it being quite predictable.
Also, the thing that stood out the most for me is that the idea is copied from Enid Blyton's Famous Five and Secret Seven series.
Overall, an easy, short and enjoyable read best suited for younger readers.
