Praise

“Precious’ keen sense of right and wrong will inspire readers; her powers of observation may inspire budding detectives. . . . The straightforward plot, easy vocabulary and compelling setting make this a perfect step up from early chapter books. That McCall Smith brings a great sense of fun to his prose heightens the appeal.”
     –Kirkus Reviews
