Funday Telegraph

I love Pearly and Pig as characters and the amazing bond they have. It is a fabulous adventure story about backing your judgement, family, using your instincts, friendship and trust. It will be enjoyed by all those 8 – 12 years old.

Lamont Books

With its engaging storyline and lovable characters, this book is sure to captivate young readers and leave them eagerly seeking other books in the series. Highly recommended.

While this is Pearly’s third adventure, readers will not feel left behind if they haven’t read the first two books already. They can jump straight into this one. Which is a great move by the author and publisher.
