    1. Cuando lo comencé tenía la firme idea de que era un libro infantil y ¡sorpresa, no lo es!Empecé a leer este libro hace dos años y me quedé por la página 60, me pareció muy aburrido pero fue por el choque de conceptos.

    2. Really a children's book but so well written it cannot fail to entertain an adult as well. The desciptions of a town's descent into gold fever anarchy are wonderful, humourous and sad all at the same time. Highlights - Father Ignatius's sermon and the collapse of the hotel. Excellent character building and an easy but rich prose. Of course the kids win through in the end - it is after all a children's story

    3. McCaughrean's book A Pack of Lies has been one of my favourite books since I was a child, and this book is another great example of how she can draw different worlds full of detail and real people. It's a little dark, yet very funny, and the characters are complex yet likeable in all their human flaws.

    4. Quite a unique historical read about the Brazilian gold rush and it's native inhabitants I guess everywhere in the world it's just the same- greed can turn into destruction.
