Reviews & Awards
Ordinary children tackle some quite extraordinary mysteries in Elen Caldecott's Marsh Road series. These lively, warm-hearted stories of family, friends and adventure are a real delight.
I'm a big fan...Written with warmth and humour, the characters...are easy to relate to, with a genuinely diverse range of backgrounds, and familiar themes of friendship and families.
