Mrs Mad's humble opinion
7/10 This is quite a good piece of work.
What's it about?
A school trip which goes wrong when the children get mixed up with bank robbers.
What happens?
Class 6 and their absent-minded teacher set out on a trip to a farm. But Miss Beaver has left her bag on the number 24 bus. And in trying to find her lost luggage, they become mixed up with bank robbers. Soon a peaceful day out turns into a riotous chase after the thieves.
Is it easy to read?
Excerpts have been used in school reading schemes for juniors.
Anything else?
A well written story, fast-moving and action-packed. Hutchins draws the reader quickly into the story. She uses a nice mixture of text and pictures to keep the reader interested. The humour is easily understood and the characters well-described.
Other books by Pat Hutchins include The House That Sailed Away.
Who says so?
This review by Mrs Mad.
The publisher reckons...

And what do you think?
School Librarian Magazine
This is any child's fantasy of the most exciting school-trip ever.
The Times Literary Supplement
A lively tale which should leave most reader's enjoyably breathless.
