The Secret of the Night Train
Sylvia BishopOlder ReadersUK2018
Mystery / Adventure. An easy enough read for a 10 year old, but interesting enough for an older reader. A detective story that extolls the joy of travel as the mystery unfolds on a train between Paris and Istanbul. Sadly, there are 2 spelling mistakes in the first 24 pages and on page 226 one of the male characters states that he prefers men to women (romantically). This could be skimmed over but is good to be aware of. Peters books say "A little slow to start, and it lacks the requisite tension for a really good adventure, but the mystery plot comes together pleasingly and it has good shelf appeal. Worth stocking."

Grace’s Mystery Seed is one of those rare children’s books that creates life-long memories. It’s a wonderful story of intrigue and shared community that also inspires a keen interest and respect for nature. That’s definitely something kids need more of in this modern age of technical gadgets and staying indoors too much. An added benefit – young readers may be inspired to grow their own mystery seed!
