Jolly Foul Play – Sunday Express Review

JFP Sunday Express Review 20 Mar 2016

Jolly Foul Play has had another lovely review this weeknd – this time from the Sunday Express. It was included in their Easter books round-up for 10-13 year olds (along with two of my very favourite new books, The Mystery of the Jewelled Moth and Defender of the Realm).

According to the Express, it’s ‘Another cracking mystery’ – I was so pleased with that quote that I bought myself an early Easter bunbreak!

You can see the full review below.

I’m very pleased to say that my Behind the Book video, featuring a Q&A, a workspace tour and a reading from the last two chapters of Death Sets Sail, is available to watch NOW on the Puffin YouTube channel. There’s a link below – I hope you enjoy it!
I’ve got a new video on the way! Behind the Book with Robin Stevens will premiere on the Puffin YouTube Channel on Friday 18th September at 6pm BST.
For the rest of September, your prompt will be resolutions. This was suggested by Detective Society member Neve – and it seems like a great choice, since this is the beginning of the school year, a time full of new challenges and big decisions.
I’ve got good news for Scottish fans – I may not be able to come visit you in person this autumn, but I’ll be able to be with you virtually! I’m teaming up with the Scottish Friendly Children’s Book Tour and Book Week Scotland for a week of absolutely FREE events for Scottish schools.
You have until the 6th of September to send all of your questions about the MMU series, The Ministry of Unladylike Activity, Howl the puppy or anything else you might want to know to a special email address that my publisher Puffin has set up: I’m going to be answering my very favourites on a new ‘Behind the Book’ video, premiering on the 18th of September on the Puffin YouTube channel.

  1. That’s wonderful news! You must be very happy with the reviews, both of them. Just double checking, the Jolly Fowl Play launch is definitely on the twenty sixth and not the twenty fourth?

    1. Hi Alice, thank you! Yes, that’s right, it’s on the 26th – the 24th is a Thursday, so we thought that Saturday would be easier for everyone to get to it. I’ll see you there I hope!

  2. Hi Robin,
    I love your books and i have recommended them to nearly everyone in my class they are that amazing. A girl in my class took the chance and started reading them our selves as the next hazel and daisy (i am hazel of course). Anyway I am so excited for Jolly Foul Play and I hope it will be just as good as the other books. I hated reading before I started reading your books so thank you for bringing the joy of reading to me.


    1. Hi Rose, you’re amazing, thank you so much! And I love that you’re Hazel. I feel very lucky that I could inspire you to read – thank you for letting me know!
