Hott Review of Cora Flash & the Diamond of Madagascar:

Cora Flash and the Diamond of Madagascar is an amazing book!
I think it’s an adorable mystery that many – boys and girls of all ages – will find intriguing and fun. I love the characters and the plot. I especially loved how Cora walked us through the train. Her experiences and descriptions are spellbinding plus she gives us a great setting for the mystery to come and details the many different aspects of riding a train that most will never experience. The plot was terrific, even though I suspected ‘who done it’ I wasn’t positive because it was so well played.

This book is appropriate for all ages but the reading level is probably about 8 and up.
