Anjali Mittal has written the kind of book that has always enchanted children and is timeless. It is gentle and innocent but at the same time an exciting adventure story. Even reading it as an adult it opened the doors to my imagination and filled my mind with charming pictures of a world where a boarding school high in snow-covered mountains is run by a regiment of nuns – some formidable, some funny – all eccentric characters! If you know any 7-12 years-olds, buy them this book. If you don’t, buy it for yourself!
