    In my endless search to find some books for my primary classes, I came across this book. It’s such a breath a fresh air – educational but engaging, intriguing and interesting. Lucy is a great character that children will relate to and it’s wonderful to have an adventure story with a capable, likable girl as the central character. It’s great for kids from about age 9 (or a bit younger if they’re a strong reader). It’s pitched really well – some challenging language but not so much that a child will get frustrated. I highly recommend it.
