Booklist Review: "When Prudence Pridy's poacher father is sent to a convict ship for deportation, she and her friend Solomon Snow set out to rescue him. Riding in Solomon's donkey cart, they encounter Rosabella, the six-year-old Infant Prodigy, and become involved in another story, the theft of the cursed ruby of Toj. This convoluted adventure, sequel to Solomon Snow and the Silver Spoon (2005), is presented in chapters with Victorian-style headings explaining what is to come. Solomon and Prudence make a complementary team: Prudence has the book smarts and Solomon the clever head. The gently humorous third-person narrative is occasionally interrupted by extracts from the journal of Dr. Casimir Calamari, celebrated jewel expert and criminal mastermind. A hodgepodge of dialects, including Irish, Italian, Cockney, and baby talk, may slow down the middle-grade reader eager to get to the satisfying end. The book stands on its own, but children may want to follow the author's repeated instructions and read the first installment of the trio's adventures. --Kathleen Isaacs Copyright 2007 Booklist"
