Most Helpful Customer Reviews
We stumbled upon this series at the library and my son just loves it! After reading the first in the series, he begged me to buy all four books...and he never begs for books. I appreciate books that can engage kids, while touching on global issues.
One more book in another great series by Alexander McCall Smith.
