'This is the best new series for younger readers that we've seen coming through in a long time! Everything about it is a winner for us, from the plot and characters to the location and striking illustrations throughout. It is beautifully produced and as a gift edition hardback it was one of our Christmas top sellers. It continues to do well for us, though we are looking forward to the paperback hopefully coming soon! It really lends itself to hand-selling which makes it ideal for shops like ours and like most things from Alexander McCall Smith, it is utterly charming. We can't wait for the second in the series - I really feel this has the potential to be something really special in children's publishing and look forward to it being a permanent addition to our bookshelves' - Sally Pattle - Bookshop Manager, Far From the Madding Crowd
