Overview
This book is for children of all ages and adults too despite the categorisation: the author's concept when she writes the Henratty Mortimer series of books is to give the parents just as much enjoyment in reading the book to their children who are enjoying listening to the book being read. Henratty Mortimer and her friends continue on their adventure in their magical and mysterious home Meerville in The Land of Arkvale. In this book the reader really gets to recognise more of the unique personalities of each of the characters and how they interact with one another especially Henratty and Jack and snippets of the readers sense of humour starts to appear a little more in this book which becomes more apparent in the next series.

Description
This book is for children of all ages and adults too despite the categorisation: the author's concept when she writes the Henratty Mortimer series of books is to give the parents just as much enjoyment in reading the book to their children who are enjoying listening to the book being read. The author decided to use meerkats when she saw these adorable and very funny creatures on her trip to Newquay Zoo in Cornwall as they made her chuckle so much. There is a character that every individual (child or adult) will love. From series 2 to 5 of Henratty Mortimer books the meerkat always have some sort of mystery to solve, the author never planned it that way but when she took pen to paper the stories seem to unfold and flow almost of their own accord. This book starts to develop the wonderful meerkat characters a lot more especially Henratty Mortimer and Jack Brian, the reader begins to see their competitive nature as they are so alike but do not realise it, whereas the two younger siblings, Lyndi Lou Mortimer and Oscar Brian are the quieter, more focused siblings whom have the same interests and really get on. Henratty and Jack are like two little detectives and love to solve a mystery, especially Jack and no matter the danger Jack has no fear as he loves an adventure. This book shows how clever these two meerkat characters can be when they try to solve this mystery which involves saving the life of Misha Mortimer, Henratty's eldest sister from the evil monster lurking in the woods. The story is depicted by 27 stunning and vivid colour illustrations. The author would love her books to be made into animation as she has many other wonderful animal characters and not just the meerkats that can be found in the third and fourth series of the books and the author has already written four poem picture books based on the other animal characters to publish, such as Poppy The Most Beautiful Worm and Enoch and Escargot's Snail Trail. Again, these books also have an underlying value and are very witty.

About the author
Henrietta Defreitas grew up in the East End of London, and has six siblings and numerous nieces and nephews. At senior school she excelled in Art, Law, Chemistry and Biology and qualified as a medical secretary. She draws her inspiration for the Henratty Mortimer books from her childhood experiences, remembering her 'big sister' role in looking after her two younger sisters and watching her nieces and nephews at playtime. Her parents' funny interaction with one another and jovial behaviour are also brought to life in her storytelling. Not only is Henrietta a talented children's author, but her creativity also extends to singing and songwriting and she has written and produced many songs over the years, one of which is Henratty Mortimer's theme song, Come Fly With Me. Henrietta has also written four poem picture books based on the other animal characters in her Henratty Mortimer books and a further poem picture book dedicated to her mother. All her books have an underlying value that she believes children can learn from, and her concepts are drawn from the many proverbs that her mother would use as she was growing up when she wanted to teach Henrietta a valuable lesson in life.
