About the author
Top reviews from other countries
The storyline is slighter than previous books in the series - less text and more emphasis on the visual - but again beautifully illustrated, mostly done in oranges and turquoise, and cunning use is made of white.
Perhaps not quite as gripping as the previous six, but stiil really good fun.
