    From a kids point of view

    This is a light quirky read. It is done from a "kids" point of view. This is not your hard core mystery read so if that is what you are looking for this is not for you. I found it fun and from a different perspective than most mysteries. The old English/providence slang used through out is mixed with traditional English, this helps to set the "mood" of the book but can be a little distracting. Heck it is a free read and kept me entertained. Happy reading!

    Highly recommended--not the usual detective!

    I really enjoyed this book. I like the British mysteries anyway, and this one is written from--what I consider--a unique angle. There are not many mysteries featuring children as the ones doing the detecting--at least not many that would not be considered children's books.

    GREAT BOOK

    This was a great book, it gave me all the clues I needed to figure out who did the crime and to find out I was totally wrong in the end.

    I am looking forward to the second book and hope that it will be a continued series. Thank you Mr. Sellars for hours of entertaining and enjoyable reading.

    Enjoyed This Book

    Since it was advertised for younger audience I was not sure that I would like it..
    But I am glad that I got it... I enjoyed this book.
    Those children are smart and I enjoyed the way that they solved the crimes set forth in this book. Though adults did not always believe them ~ they did not give up
