    1. Well, I have never been so surprised by a children s book before At first I thought it was just a pretty good book But about half way through a stunning twist had me on the edge of my seat and coming to the conclusion that as good as Enid Blyton was she would never have had such a twist Most of the children s books I have read were black and white This one was not so Of course good wins, but it was the fact that not all the characters where perfectly good or bad that was so different And I truly [...]

    2. As an adult I still love this children s series It s a lighthearted quick mystery, and I enjoy the children s adventures.

    3. I received this book from a giveaway but the opinions are 100% mine This was a fast paced adventure mystery set in the 1950s in Britain I think fans of the hardy boys and nancy drew type series will enjoy this book I love how these kids go out to find adventure and makes friends quickly The plot is fast paced and clues are left that later lead tie the mystery together The curiosity of the children often gets them into trouble including numerous times getting captured, but it all works out in the [...]

    4. Sweet book Much faster paced than most books written for kids in the 50s 60s, but kept the innocence of the times Not only did I love it, but my kids did as well We re anxiously awaiting book 2.

    5. Great bookThank you I loved it What a wonderful book I would recommend it to anyone that loves adventures and thrills.

    6. This was a fun read I really liked the action and adventure I also liked that there was a disclaimer at the beginning with regards to the setting and language Going into the book knowing I was to read the Queen s English and not American English is helpful.Also important to the reader is the era of the setting While not specifically stated one can determine the era to be the 1950s, maybe the 1960s The children are on holiday and left alone a lot with no means of communication other than running [...]

    7. I read this book because the author offered it for free and I also thought there was an unfair review of the story.The story has plenty of of action and the kids in it are fearless.It did get a little confusing with all the tunnels and caves in the story It was kind of funny how one of the characters rushed into his house to tell his father his friends were being held captive by some crooks, but made sure to drink a glass of milk first Another kid makes his friends eat a good lunch before going [...]

    8. Two thumbs upThis story if sure to delight readers young and old mystery, adventure, and fun I d a great combination in which Paul Moxham has used to create this mystery check it out, I promise you will not be disappointed.

    9. I remember reading The Boxcar Children when I was younger and I loved them I thought I d take a jaunt down memory lane with this novel Unfortunately, the writing could use some work I had a hard time following the plot because of lack of descriptive language

    10. This was a very quick, action packed book The kids in the story were my favorite part along with Mr Spencer Loved the mystery too I was able to read this book in a couple of hours excellent stuff.

    11. It was a fast cute read The kids don t go looking for mysteries, the mystery just happens to fall into their laps.

    12. Great This was a great book It kept me interested and I didn t want to put it down Great story I highly recommend it.

    13. I am reading this to my 3rd and 4th grade language arts students while they do their daily writing They have to write until I stop reading They still don t want me to stop every day

    14. The book is about four children Will and Joe aged 12 yrs, Amy 10 yrs and Sarah 8 yrs The kids during their summer vacation decide to explore some caves located on the nearby beach and end up in unearthing a gang who are involved in smuggling counterfeit currencies.The storyline is fast and from the very first chapter, the adventure starts However, I felt there were a lot of shortfalls in the story like Mrs Mitchell mother of Joe, Amy, and Sarah on receiving a call from her unwell mother, leaves [...]

    15. A quick mystery read that brought to mind the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boy mysteries we used to read during school days Its action packed, in fact sometimes I felt that there was too much of falling into thieves lair and too many escape plans An ok ok read, maybe if I had been several decades younger I d have enjoyed it

    16. Not really my thing I like kids mysteries, but I don t like it when the kids purposely lie or go behind their parents backs to solve the crimes I also thought the almost indifferent attitudes from some of the adults especially the police when the kids finally did involve them were pretty farfetched And the constant escaping and being caught again got old after a while.

    17. This book was such a thrilling mystery that really will pull you in It s like you know the characters and it s like you are part of the mystery Never had a book other than this that makes you think about what will happen next as you re continuing your day This truly was a good read that I would definitely suggest to young readers as myself I almost think any age could get away with reading this wonderous mystery series, I really do So a shout out to Paul Moxham, keep up the good work

    18. My children and I read it last year in June 2012 This is what I wrote then.My son rated it 4 stars, my daughter 5 So, it should be really 4.5 stars.From the point of view of a parent, I think it is an excellent book for young readers It has it all, the holidays, the children turned detectives, the bad guys, the well described seaside with caves, the adults called away because of crisis It is well written, no bad language and no modern gadgets.a My 11 year old son said it was ok but at times, he [...]

    19. This is another book that I read years ago I bought downloaded it in 2012, but I couldn t remember much about it It s a YA mystery set in the 1950 s England, involving Joe, his two sisters Amy and Sarah, and friend Will This is a quick read, and despite or maybe because, it is set in the 1950 s, it was a fast, fun read A few grammatical errors in this early version I have perhaps cleaned up in later versions But the errors are so uncommon that it really didn t bother me too much.If you are looki [...]

    20. It is wonderful to be once able to read a good old fashioned rollicking kids adventure story Back in the 1950s, early 60s, kids had no electronic devices to entertain them, they made their own fun and often that meant entering a world of make believe Back then my friends and I would play for hours cowboys and Indians I was always the Indian and tied to a tree , cops and robbers I was always the robber and tied to a tree , English soldiers and German soldiers I was always the German and tied to [...]

    21. This is a very mixed blessing Mostly it s a story with lots of action and adventure that would engage a young reader well with its content This is, unfortunately, marred by poor editing As an adult reader, I firmly believe YA books MUST be sound grammatically and in punctuation, part of an author s duty to his or her audience This one does not meet those standards The title s lack of apostrophe raised a dubious eyebrow, but other such errors existed in the book, most prominently German Shephard [...]

    22. Famous Five Meets TintinThe Mystery of Smugglers Cove by Paul Moxham is the first in his new The Mystery Series Set in 1950 s England, we follow a group of four children Joe, Amy, Sarah and Will on their adventures.The first book starts it all off Three siblings meet a fourth member and together they explore the local caves and get a greater adventure than even their imaginations could have thought of.Reading the first book is very reminiscent of the Famous Five series by Enid Blyton The author [...]

    23. The Mystery of Smugglers Cove by Paul Moxham 4 STARSThe Mystery of Smugglers Cove is book 1 in the Mystery series by Paul Moxham It is set in 1950 England It is an old fashion mystery with children exploring the land around them instead of watching tv or playing video games.I found it entertaining and lots of action as the children find smugglers using the caves.Sarah was the youngest of the children at age 8 Amy 10 and her brother Joe 12 and thier new friend Will 12 Joe and his sisters are stay [...]

    24. I picked up this book because I loved the Enid Blyton vibe with the name and the cover However I feel that it s very Enid Blyton light.Enid Blyton while far from a faultless writer had a knack for writing about characters that I cared about In this book, there was next to no character development I like to know something about the characters I m reading about and I didn t get that here They were just like pawns being moved about from space to space and I feel indifferent about the cast I did enj [...]

    25. This is a children s mystery reminiscent of the Hardy Boys, The Bobbsey Twins, Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden The author set the story in England in the 1950 s so you should plan on doing a book talk about the time period before your child or students read it This will clarify references to after the war and the freedom children have to run around unsupervised by any adults You will also need to include a discussion about the lack of technology that we have access to today Some of the language is [...]
