The story is full of curious meetings between Orson and various characters, known to Captain Harrison, the other main character. The amusing moments are generally just that – amusing! – and the illustrations are simple and charming. I can see children of between the ages 8 and 11 joining in with the various songs and chuckling at the jokes and oddball people that Orson receives his financial advice from, though I am not so sure they will readily learn the lessons given. The author has to be commended for his efforts at attempting to teach the rather dry subject of finance to youngsters through this book. Without giving away too much of the plot I have to say that the experience of receiving information via cabbages batted through the air with a tennis racket is one that is surreal and weird enough to make any pupil remember it, whatever their age or experience! Maybe departments of education everywhere should start taking notes?
