Another masterpiece. My 6 year old says "Great and mega, mega, mega funny.!" Clive Goddard has made this sequel even better that his brilliant first Fintan Fedora adventure. A review can't do it justice - you gave to read it yourself!
I read book 1 in this series over 2 years ago now but it has stayed with me and I still recommend it to people, so when I found out there was a second book I knew I had to read it. I ordered it at the library and waited for it to come in. I have been working my way through a series of books by Will Hill, but they are too big to carry in my handbag, so on my way out yesterday I grabbed this book and popped it in my bag (I never go out anywhere without a book on me). I ended up getting there early and had 20 minutes to sit and wait, I pulled this book out and read the first 61 pages in that time and struggled to put it down. These books are pure delight, so full of fun and silliness- it will make you laugh out loud and groan at the cheesiness - but in a good way. I picked it up again this morning and got straight back into it. I finished it within a couple of hours overall, it was just as charming as the first book and full of witty, sarcastic humour. I really enjoyed reading it and think Fintan is a real treasure of a character. This would be a great series to give to a book group, would create some good discussions with the children. I hope there will be more to come in this series.
