Gripping Excitement!
4 stars By Libby, Oct 12 2011
A perfect concoction for young fiction - a buoyant boy hero, caught up in the bizarrest of events and happenings in a peculiar village that seems to ran by two detestable 'Aunties'. 

Mike Mason really thinks outside the square when creating his plots and characters. I feel as though I have actually been to the village of Five Corners and met sparky Zac, those horrid Aunties - Esmerelda and Pris - along with their strangely small butler, and the intriguing, some what alluring, Mr Sky Porter... and of course that mysterious Blue Umbrella!!
