More fun adventures from Emily, the girl who was born with an eye on the end of her finger - which, when you are into solving mysteries, can prove to be very 'handy' indeed! Ages: 7+ Emily Eyefinger's parents were shocked when Emily was born with an eye on the end of her finger BUt . . . Emily has discovered that an eye on the end of her finger can be very handy! Emily would never use her extra eye to cheat at cards or hide-and-seek, but she can find lost objects and reform the class bully. On the one hand Emily doesn't like her finger, but on the other hand she does! Especially when her eyefinger helps Emily to capture a gang of crooks and save the day.

About the Author

Duncan Ball is the author of many books of children's fiction, including the multi-award-winning Selby and Emily Eyefinger series, various picture books, five novels, a book of plays and a collection of funny poetry, My Sister Has a Big Black Beard. Duncan lives in Sydney.


Gr 2-4-- This story has an intriguing concept: a little girl is born with an eye on her finger. Each chapter marks an episode of mild adventure with Emily using her ``eye finger'' to find missing objects, catch bank robbers, and even guide a boat crew through a thick fog. Unfortunately, Emily is a one-dimensional character. Readers never know how old she is or even where the story takes place. Although Ball professes to have written the book to illustrate that there are valuable qualities in all people, the tone of Emily's parents toward her is neither realistic nor understanding. Also, the humor is corny. Ball definitely has an original idea, but it never gets off the ground. --Cheryl Cufari, N.A. Walbran Elementary School, Oriskany, NY

My Granddaughter Emily aged 7 loved the book and is now reading it herself. I will buy more in the series for her to enjoy.
