This is the first book in the Murder Most Unladylike collection. This book is a great book for those looking for a murder mystery, without the very full on violence. Even though the crimes are not as violent as your normal murder mysteries, this book is still perfectly fine for a person looking for there first murder mystery. The book is lite in the sense that the book is not going to take over your mind. The narration done by Gemma Chan, was clear, and done well, I was able to understand all the words. The narration also didn't have any interference in it too. This book is highly recommended to all who are over the age of 7. This book as well as all the others will soon become your favourite.

A great collection of murder mysteries.

A great value book collection containing the prequel as well as book one and two. The greatest part about these murder mysteries, is that they are down to earth cases. Unlike in most books where the case is so violent that it belongs in a horror book or film. The three cases you will get to read about if you buy this book are very believable. They are also the perfect book for people who don't like violence. This is a great way to enter the crime genre, and highly recommended.

A great mix of fiction and non fiction.

Well written and takes the reader right to the Nazi extermination camps in Poland. The prolong at the start of the book from Dita herself is also truly moving. One last thing to mention is that this book has quite a bit of violence, swear words, nudity, executions and sex talk.

A truly unique, funny and scary horror story. This book is funny and will have your children on the edge of there seats whilst they listen to it. The music that they use in the recording can at times be a bit annoying to older listens, but for young children (like the book is mainly for), it should be fine

Set in post-war Poland in 1946, this book has a great historic setting. Because this is one of the only books with Jewish characters set in post-war Europe, it seams silly not to give this book a high rating. The author has used high historic knowledge to create this book. Because of some of the themes used in the book we recommend that readers aged 9 - 13 have their parents tell them a bit about the horrors of the Holocaust first.

This is the 4th book in the family of books about Felix and his friends. The book is set in a way that the reader can feel the emotions of all the characters in the story. Whilst this is a fictional book (All except Once, involving Janusz Korczak) it is set out in a very real manner. A very highly recommend book. Due to some of the themes used in the book, the youngest readers should be about 9 - 13.

A story of great courage

This is the second book in a gripping family of books. In Then, we get to hear about how Felix and his best friend Zelda try to get new parents. Also, this book is also sad at times to because in this book the Nazis hang Zelda. Once again, due to the language, violence and torture this is a good book for anyone over 9. May I also recommend that for children aged 9 - 13 that haven't heard of the Holocaust, that before letting them read it you both have a sit down and discuss it so that the child can prepare to hear about the horrors of the Holocaust.

Even though this book is fiction, it still gives the reader a new way to look at the Holocaust. The book is about a boy called Felix, who is living in Poland in 1942. Wise beyond his years, this book shows his life and how he trys to survive the Holocaust. With his best friend Zelda by his side, this is a great tale of survival. Because of some of the topics of violence and death, this is a good book for ages 9 and up.

This is a well set out and historical book and is a great antidote to the Murder Most Unladylike series. The set of books, of which this book is a part of, is not all written by Robyn Stevens. After the writer of the first book (The Mystery of the London Eye) died, Robyn Stevens was given the chance to write the second book - set in New York. Once again this is a book that any Child or Grown Up would like.

If you have an interest in the Holocaust then this is the book for you. Set out with a view of helping to teach the tragic time of the holocaust in a great way for children to understand. Written by an author who herself is involved with the Anne Frank House, this is a great way to get a basic amount of information on Anne Frank.
