Pressestimmen'For a debut novel, this is brilliant...The story, because of its location is very credible...The pace is fast moving, very readable and at times very funny. It is well researched and plausible, and could well be the first in a series with the same children and the MacArthurs having further adventures. A well deserved addition to any school collection, and a book that would be perfect for giving.' --Janette Perkins, School Librarian journal, Winter 2006 'Set against a background of the Edinburgh Tattoo and the Festival Fringe it makes a diverting read which, refreshingly, mocks the convention it's written in. Anne Forbes has a vivid imagination which she has put to good use.' --Carousel, The Guide To Children's Books, Autumn 2006
