‘…an entertaining and exciting book. I was hooked as soon as Lizzie traveled to India…I can’t wait to read the next adventure…I would definitely recommend this book.’ Guardian Children’s Books – full review here.

‘Loads of things to like about this book… I was chuffed to read a well-written mystery book, which could be enjoyed not only by 10-15 year olds but also by older readers… you get pulled into the fantastical world where multiple cultures are connected to one exotic garden in Herefordshire… Lizzie is a lovely, smart voice and I was so happy to read about a character like her.’ The Whimsy Bookworm
