I'm unsure how I've not read this sooner! This book had everything and I will definitely be recommending to my pupils and colleagues. I've powered straight through book 2 and now eagerly awaiting the third title in the series publishing in Sept 2023.

Read with my 10 year old as a bedtime read. Nice short chapters that mean that his interest was held throughout the book. We will definitely by continuing with Roz’s story.

I must admit that we read this book when it first came out and it was a joy to revisit it. It is such a heartening series and I hope it continues in the same vein. Loved the illustrations too.
