Very imaginative. Mrs Poppitt has clearly experienced life to the full and her imagination is undiminished at the ripe old age of fifty. I expect to see this shortlisted for the booker Prize next year!

Excellent Read.
Humour, fun and fantasy, what more do you want from a bedtime story. Fantastic!!
A fun quirky imaginative children's story
this book is absolutely fantastic everyone i know loves it !!!!!
An absolute tour de force from start to finish. My three year old son was reading this and had a sneak peak and found myself two hours later still reading it. I would compare it to the likes of J.K. Rowling and Roald Dahl. Recommend to anyone.
Beautiful book. Really deserves your votes!
A great children's adventure book
A beautifully written, wonderful adventure story. My children and I were absorbed from the very beginning. Cannot recommend highly enough.
really enjoyable.When is her next book coming out,cant wait.I am sure this young lady has a bright future ahead.Keep it coming
A thoroughly enjoyable little book.I bought it for my grandchildren and they ask me to read it ,over and over.
My grand children asked for this book for Christmas as they liked the front cover. The story itself is fun with interesting internet search ideas so you can learn more about things. It is what they say on the poster in Waterstones - Bang up-to-date Famous Five. Good Luck Hilda Poppitt hope you win!
Terrific little book, kids loved it.
I bought this book for my little sister who is still learning to read. She still can't read but she remembers some of the lines parrot fashion. It's really funny.
My children loved this book, it's not too long and perfect for bedtime read.
Enjoyable, fun read, that kids loved and liked the interaction with Google
I have read this book many many times, and it never gets boring!
A great fun read of a children's story. Quirky, entertaining and remember to have your tablet with you to look up the google references. Excellent and imaginative read.
A very quirky fun story that my kids loved
My kids loved this book, and read it from cover to cover twice!
