I found the book from the Cable Factory recycling event today. First I didn't realise it was a children's book but still looking forward to read it.

Extremely good book. Easy to say it was the best read for this year so far:) So vivid and interesting storytelling, Maia and Miss Minton were lovely characters, a lot is happening and of course a nice end.

I have offered the book to someone so waiting for an answer whether to send the book abroad or will it travel some other way. Let's see.

I took this today's meetup, since I wasn't getting any responce to my PM's to send the book abroad as a RABCK. Was it Annimanni who took the book?

Yep, it was me! Such a pretty book, I couldn't resist, particularly since it is set in Brazil. Thanks Niksu!

I am so so glad I picked up this book! It's a wonderful story with interesting characters and an exotic location. A true feel-good read. I got sucked right in and would've read it in one sitting if that were possible in the hurly-burly of my life right now :D And I know I would have loved it as a kid, too. Recommended reading!


The book is next off to em64 who chose it from the First Sentences VBB running on the Finnish forum, based on this:

"It was a good school, one of the best in London."

The book was waiting for me in my mailbox. Looks like an interesting read!

What an interesting and engaging read this was! It was utterly surprised that I liked this as much as I did. The story was interesting, the characters were flesh and blood and the ending was absolutely lovely and suitable for the story. Thanks for sharing, niksu and annimanni! Without bookcrossing I probably hadn't read this one and that would have been a shame.

I brought this book home from our meet-up today, seems like a lovely read. Thanks girls!

EDIT March 2013: I had this book with me on my Hong Kong holiday, but I ended up having no time or energy for reading anything else than HK travel guides in the vibrant city. So I had to let this one go and continue its journey on the other side of the world.

I spent a week in Hong Kong on my winter holiday and was excited to visit the local OBCZ shelf. We had nice smoothies in the cafe and I did find the bookshelves and the note about this being a bookswapping place. But the were no special bookcrossing markings anywhere. Also I could find only one BC book having a Bally sticker on the spine.

I however released this book on the shelves leaving the bookcrossing stickers clearly visible and am hoping it will be found by another BC traveller sooner or later.

Greetings from Finland!

So excited to find this book on the shelf! I remember Bookgeo found one of my books at the OBCZ last year, so I'm real glad I managed to find her book here.

I am visiting Hong Kong and went to the OBCZ to release some books in celebration of the International BC Day. I wasn't looking for this book but when I pulled it off the shelf to take a look, I saw the BC label on the cover. Really thrilled about this. I've decided to keep this book because of the enthusiastic blurb from Philip Pullman.

I've also tidied up the shelf, and put BC stickers on the spines of some of the BC books that are there (there are several but without the spine label you can't really tell). Hopefully that'll help future BCers find them.

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
