    " We are 4 for 4! What will I do when we finish the final book. My 4 and 6 year olds are hooked! This was a great story that held their suspense at the end....even mine! It had a great ending. AMS has done it once again! "

    " It's Alexander McCall Smith. So it's appropriate for young readers but not condescending or silly. It's information without being preachy. "
