Fantastic Read 2 September 2012
 
 
Russells Hall Primary School, West Midlands UK, by one of the pupils:
 
Jay - Pea - Eyes
The book has very good and interesting vocabulary
The story is exciting at all times and it makes you wonder what will happen next
Once you start reading the book it's hard to put it down.

Thanks to A. from Russells Hall Primary School.
 
The full hand written review is in my possession and is also scanned onto my website.

From the Author

Hi everyone,

I hope you like the book Jay-Pea-Eyes aka Junior Private Investigators.
It was originally titled Jay-Pea-Eyes aka JPI's aka Junior Private Investigators, but that title would have left no room on the front cover for the brilliant illustration!

The book is loosely based around the area I lived in as a child; lots of fun places to play, loads of great memories of green fields, old coal mines, the Zoo and childhood freedom.

Enjoy reading the book as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Best regards, John

More About the Author

John Alexander Priest - born in 1958 in a town called Netherton, near Dudley, West Midlands.

Started writing in 1985 and had several articles published in National Magazines.

First children's book published by Ginn & Co, Ltd., titled 'Naughty Nigel Runs Away'.
This was followed by 'Tom's Birthday Treat', 'Answer The Phone Fiona!' and a CD called 'Tales for Tiny Tots'.

Recently two new online children's books were added to his Kindle collection.

These were both for a different age group and the first is called 'Peter Challenge - Time Surfer', a fantasy adventure for children aged 7-10yrs.

The second is a detective/whodunit called 'Jay-Pea-Eyes aka Junior Private Investigators', for ages 8-10yrs and is about a group of children who solve mysteries faster than the grown-ups can!

His latest book is a cuddle-up bedtime book for babies and great up to the age of 5 years as it teaches kids farmyard animal names, reading, listening and counting skills.

A writer who enjoys school and library visits (UK only - petrol tank not big enough to get to USA) to show how books are made. Always available for these visits, just email johnapriest@gmail.co.uk

Format: Paperback
I've encountered a problem. John is such an awesome guy, and he went through all of the trouble to mail his book from England! But I am not a huge fan of it- which disappointed me.

I really wanted to like it. Here are my problems with it. The chapter headings are confusing because it is just a magnifying glass, no number- just the image. The characters fall into moments where they don't speak like kids and the context isn't necessarily age appropriate to what the cover suggests.

That being said, I loved the idea of story. I'm a big fan of ice cream. I also wanted to see the kids actually work on the case for longer than like five minutes, which is what it felt like. They didn't really follow any leads or get the feel for being a real PI, just sort of jumped in with both feet and there you have it.

This book wasn't for me, but it might be for someone else. So give it a shot.

*I received this book in exchange for an honest review*
