112 Pages
Children’s Fiction

Age range: 8-11 Years

The Little Museum is a book writer by fellow blogger Karen Beddow from Mini Travellers and Education Consultant Lyndsay Macaulay. The synopsis describes the book as ‘a children’s mystery adventure’ and that’s exactly what it is.

We read the book as a family, a chapter at night with Aria 6 and Logan 9 and they both loved the book. Set mainly and France the book follows Lucy and Tom who discover a big and rather cool family secret.

The story opens with the disappearance of the Eiffel Tower and Lucy and Tom and their family are given the task of finding out why. The book is fun and interesting with lots of hidden secrets, as readers, we wanted to find out about them all, just as Lucy and Tom do.

Peppered with interesting facts and illustrations, the book even has a few French lessons snuck in. With explanations of as to what the words mean and how to pronounce them. You also get to learn about some of the big landmarks of France and have a mini geography lessons, the best part if your child doesn’t even realise it is happening.

It’s hard to describe some of the things I particularly loved about the story without giving parts away that would spoil it for you. But I loved how imaginative it was, the way and the cause of the mystery is fabulous. I want to learn more about the world that Beddow and Macauley have created. More about a certain mysterious lady and some of the characters we have met. Both of my children asked if we could get the second book as soon as we turned the last page, so I do hope there is more to follow.


A fantastic children’s adventure book that is exciting, fun and a great page turner. Set in a wonderful world, there are certainly a few items I would like in my life! Mini French lovers and mystery solvers will love it.

Rating: 4.5/5

  1. Definitely Malaysia, I have been fortunate to have visited a few times but would love to take my daughter there one day!

  2. We had a big family trip set for April this last year, and of course that plan was cancelled. So we are all just hoping we get another chance!
