Reviewer Megan Stuart

The story begins with 4 children (and a parrot) on a train with no money, no home and no parents. This desperate situation calls for courage and action.

Uplifting and well written the story shows that honesty and truth can win through. Along the way there are bears, kidnapping cowboys, some skilful map making and children working together as a team.

The end reward is three thousand five hundred golden guineas for the winners and a good meal for everyone.

A recommended read.
