Review: Callie is going on a school trip to The Tower of London, she tells Bo to stay home but he stowaways in her backpack, wanting to meet the famous Ravens. Whilst there a crime is spotted and with Bo in the sky to spy on everything they keep check on the suspects and what they are up too.
This was another incredibly fun book in the series, I really loved that they were on a school trip it made the case that much trickier. Bo was hilarious sneaking around at the tower to see the ravens, then flying around everywhere to spy on the criminals.
I loved that this book taught history by being set at the tower, but you wouldn’t even realise, as you are so swept up with the story and the mystery that was going on. It was really fun and trying to solve how they were going to catch them was great. I loved the inclusion of the ravens in the solving the case.
The illustrations are amazing and capture the funniest scenes within the book. The story is so much fun, I loved the setting of the mystery and loved seeing them solving it in secret whilst on a school trip.
I highly recommend this book and it’s predecessor, they are so fun to read, the characters are amazing and Bo is hilarious, the mystery is always interesting to solve and you can learn a lot about being a spy with the SPUD agents.
