You might thing that Rose was an ordinary Victorian girl but you'd be wrong. Read how Rose looks after herself in a freezing winter of mystery and murder. I love this book because of the adventures Rose gets up to! I'd recommend it for anyone aged 9 or 10.

Zubaidah, Tanjina and Lamisha: We enjoyed the Rainbow Fields because the illustrations are so colourful. Doing all the tasks made us feel involved in the story. We liked the Zeebies in their colourful suits, floating around space and enjoyed helping them fix their rocket.

Nabila, Eva and Ava: we loved searching for the magic objects on the beautifully illustrated pages. We especially enjoyed the Hidden Lagoon challenge, looking for the glow-worm that didn't shine as brightly as the rest. We liked going round the path and doing the challenges.

I liked it when Bobby became a dog named Trumpy. My favourite character was Miranda because she's really exciting and always happy. I also liked the cartoon-style illustrations by David Roberts with speech bubbles. You know the book is going to be fun from the zany front cover.
