Ooh. Could be good, could be really not so good!

Oh I'm not sure about this but would be really fun if they could pull it off and find the right actresses.

I just read MMU having found it in the library, and when I returned it on Sunday saw that they had one of the sequels, Jolly Foul Play or something like that, so I got it out. (For some reason, my library is under the impression that these are adult titles :? )

I enjoyed MMU - it wasn't brilliant and some of the dialogue wasn't quite period, and the ending was surprisingly dark, but it was a nice enough read. So I'm looking forward to this one.

The thing that annoyed me most was the glossary at the end - surely children should be able to figure out what those words mean (I know I did when I was a kid) - and putting it at the end of the book won't help the kids that can't, anyway!
