Fantastic! This is a very thrilling adventure tale!
I really like this book because the 3 children (Alice, Fergus and Jesse) go on an adventure to meet Alice's dad. My favourite character is Jesse because he is like me!!!!!! :):) Children age 9-14 will love this book.
This book is incredible!! It is a great adventure story with lots of funny parts to it. I loved this book loads, and will happily read it another 10 times!! I would recommend this book for people age 10-14. It also shows how close people can get as friends when they go on an adventure.
My favourite character was Alice
The best part was when they got to the island of Nish
Alice has had to go to a boarding school where she doesn't even know what is to come.Her adventure begins with meeting rule obeying Jesse, who shows her the way to the school.Once they get to the school,they meet Furgus who is really clever but loves making mischief.One day a strange package arrives for Alice...I love the book.Full of adventure, friendship and betrayal.Recommend to anyone from 7 to 14.
Alice and Fergus areally my favorite people in the book.Interesting , would recommend.
It interested me to the book because well it was a story about adventure and children getting to go without adults into the world for two days is awesome!
It feels like a classic. I am very glad about 2 things: that this book was written, and that I read it!
I recommend this book children aged 10 to 13. It is about a girl who has no mother and is sent away to a strange school. Her dad is an actor and is frequently away. One day, after frantically pleading for him to communicate she receives a strange parcel. With it is a letter. It reads: do not open this package.
She goes on an adventure of trust, but will she ever find the truth?
This is an amazing book, five stars from me.
A cool adventure of friendship, rewards, races & punishments.
This book is great! Alice, the main character, has a talent for trouble.
An amazing adventure that was so riveting I could not put it down!
This book was really exciting and had a lot of unexpected twists however, the beginning drags on for a while and the adventure starts quite late into the book.
