I read this in one exciting sitting as I went on a super adventure with Idris and Lucia! Check out my review below and the other stops on the blog tour too!
A fantastically written and wonderfully illustrated story about Idris and Lucia, a pair of kids thrown together by their parents’ relationship. Lucia believes Idris’s mum, Sarah, to be a spy and Idris finds that ridiculous. She is the most boring mum ever and she works in a paper clip factory!
Lucia’s dad, David, is a zoo vet and animal obsessed Idris is keen to know everything about his job. One evening over dinner, the family learn of a theft at the zoo. A few Pangolins have been stolen and this is very bad news. They are highly endangered and worth a lot of money but they are also beautiful and deserve to live a peaceful life.
A trip to the zoo the next day is full of surprises as Idris and Lucia learn a lot about their family!
Action packed and with fascinating and relatable characters, this is a series I can totally get on board with. It has great facts about animals and tricks of the spy trade to learn as you read!
An exceptional new series for young readers!
