Set at the time of the moon landing, this is a brilliant suspense-filled children’s thriller!
As well as having an inspired title, there are some wonderful characters contained within the gang members and indeed their enemy – the Wormleys…
A tale of simpler times, full of some wonderful nostalgia that will lift this from being a children’s mystery novel into appealing to an adult readership from this period of time. Anyone who recalled being of a similar age during the moon landing will no doubt fall in love with this book.
This book offers the perfect mix of mystery, intrigue, mild peril and childhood friendship.
