    " The story itself is cute, if fluffy, but Ms Rankin does a GREAT job with the illustrations. "

    " I love the relaxed plot and the interesting tall-taleish slant. Superb writing drew me in slowly and completely. My nine-year-old grandson really liked it, too. "

    " What I learned: Imagination is a lovely thing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 12/16/2013

    " I loved the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series, so I had to check out what the author could do with a children's book. It was only ok. I must have been expecting too much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter | 9/8/2013

    " Clever fun read for mystery fans, not too scary and a nix mix of wackiness to season it. Read alone 8-10 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine Woodman | 8/23/2013

    " Written by the man who brought adults the Ladies Number 1 Detective Agency, this is a series that is good "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhubarb Sky | 8/4/2013

    " Love this character! A girl who DOES things and has adventures and is not in any way related to fairies! Hooray! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlotte Osborn-bensaada | 7/17/2013

    " We listened to the sound recording of this story. It was fun, exciting and a great car story. Great series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsten | 7/1/2013

    " I read this to Ellie but I had to include it in my books because it's by one of my favorite authors. So funny and whimsical! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mbjc | 6/6/2013

    " I love that my younger daughter, a non-reader, likes Alexander McCall Smith books and that she and I can each enjoy age-appropriate stories by the same author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 6/5/2013

    " A sweet and silly mystery, perfect for young mystery readers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachael | 4/26/2013

    " This was pretty cute. I tried to read it aloud to my son, but found it hard to keep all the voices straight. While it's hard to believe that Harriet's dad could "forget" to tell her about his sisters, I like how Harriet tracks them all down. It's almost an advertisement for genealogy research! :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 11/28/2012

    " Cute series by the popular adult author--and they're illustrated by a friend of mine, so buy them and read them! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Treasure | 10/30/2012

    " Lovely short little books in a series. The plots move quickly, all the characters are memorable and quirky, and setting is a bit magical in the way that all good children's books are. Great read aloud or for mid-elementary readers, girls in particular. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeannie | 10/1/2012

    " Cute story for children. It won't hold the interest for an adult as his other books do, it's too simple, but kids would probably like it. I didn't feel the McCall Smith magic. "
