Another fabulous book written by Katherine Woodfine.
Wonderful to read a proper book with excellent plot and characters for children but great for adults too.
A good reader could enjoy it from 10 years. But it's 'Can't put it down appeal' makes it a great read for any age. Very excited for the next book.
