Even adults will love the continuing adventures of Josephine Mary Cresswell. Set on the Coromandel Coast in the 1950s it combines adventure with intrigue, relationships and Maori lore. A riveting story, it would suit being read aloud to children. Well written and setting a brisk pace, The Mystery of the Missing Artefact is also a beautifully presented and formatted book, making it an ideal gift for any young member of the family.
