What the Critics Say

"(This) story is the best kind of adventure story. . . Every step is possible, and everyone is transmuted into romance by deliberate purpose. Nothing that the children do is beyond the reach of a group provided that winter, a frozen lake and mumps connive to perfect adventure." (Observer)
