Reviews

  • "A gem for budding heroes"

    Amanda Craig, The Times
  • "It delivers everything a good old-fashioned adventure should . . . A smart book for a smart young reader"

    Marcus Sedgwick, Guardian
  • "A story fluctuating between humour and high drama . . . The first story about this likeable boy, published last year, came out to universal praise. This second one is just as good"

    Independent on Sunday
  • "A great follow up to the previous story about Stuart, once again full of action and magical adventures. A fun and exciting read!"

    The Bookbag
  • "Delightful . . . Each adventure is a mini-story in itself, and all the time clues are piling up for Stuart while at the same time the dangers mount. By the time Stuart investigates the last illusion, the reader really is on the edge of their seat . . . Evans is a talented writer. Remember the name and watch out for more"
