Review:

"A truly wonderful book by a gifted and now unforgivably neglected children's writer" ( Times Educational Supplement)

"In its own class, and wearing several gold stars for distinction. Pigeon Post stands head and shoulders above the average adventure book for and of children" ( The Times)

"There is plenty of excitement, a little danger, a quality of thinking, planning and fun in connection with a gold-mine. The ingenuity of this group of children is delightful and stimulating" ( Times Literary Supplement)
