Magpies Full Review
Geoffrey McSkimming has written a humourous and suspenseful children’s novel which demonstrates the power of good writing to evoke the sounds, sights, smells of a vast array of different settings and scenes. In Phyllis Wong, he has created a uniquely curious, intelligent and entertaining heroine whose quirky activities and interests are sure to delight.
This is a magical gem! Highly entertaining, with mystery, adventure and Shakespearean history united with a highly competent and independent female lead character who displays amazing intellectual skills and organisation. One of the delights of this book is Phyllis's connections to some quirky adults and an extremely eccentric school friend. Her friend, Clement, is the ultimate bizarre sidekick, who adds a considerable comic element to her adventures in time. Recommended as a fun fictional fantasy.
