This is a really terrific book - bought with an eight year old in mind and it's a perfect choice. A great combination of: characters you really care about, loads of adventure and excitement plus plenty of warmth and humour. And the 'fact vs fiction' bit at the end such a good idea for any kid who wants to know more. Loved it.
