As my daughter knows I am always reading children’s books she bought me this book for my birthday, along with an adult book.
I loved this story, it was just the type of book I used to love reading when I was young and it brought me just as much pleasure now at 47!
It is a full blown adventure story with such vivid descriptions you feel like you are there amongst it all. Sophie Taylor, an orphan, is the main character in the book. She works at a department store in London called Sinclair’s. Sophie is under suspicion after a number of valuables go missing and so the mystery begins.
Sophie calls upon her friends Billy, a junior porter, and Lil, a beautiful model, to help clear her name. It is an exciting, fast-paced adventure story with plenty of twists and turns.
Children of 8 years plus will love it and I’m sure quite a few adults will also, a great addition to our school library.
