'Wendy Meddour's previous book won a prize for writing which improves relations between the races, and this book continues that invaluable work, as well as being an excellent read for those who are just beginning their solo reading careers.' Carousel 'a highly entertaining, funny story' 'what multicultural writing for children should be' 'warm, satisfying and intelligent' School Librarian 'Set against a British Muslim background, this is a fast-paced, funny sleuthing adventure, which young readers will find hard to put down. Both accessible and entertaining.' Booktrust Entertaining dialogue and plenty of touches of humour make this a good read. Parents in Touch This book is most welcome, not only for its Muslim characters of whom there are far too few in contemporary children's books set in Britain, but also for the way it promotes values in which learning and academic achievement are highly prized. Most importantly, it is also an entertaining read. Books for Keeps
