The latest installment in the Dido and Simon series is as kooky as any Aiken has written, but alas has the feeling of being quickly dashed off in between other obligations and written simply for the sake of adding to the series without much thought put into it.

Children will still enjoy it, and I myself chuckled at the end even though I found it came too soon and was wrapped up way too neatly and quickly.
