Firstly, the stories are well written and are exciting with many plot twists and are not at all predictable. They are not written, as are so many readers designed for non-native learners, with the idea of cramming one with vocabulary or illustrating grammatical points. That makes them flow smoothly and are read to be enjoyed.
The author uses good standard colloquial French without employing slang terms and other usages which vary widely from region to region in a global language such as French. Also, even unfamiliar words or idioms can usually be readily deciphered from context. There is also a great deal of natural spoken dialogue without resorting to "Street French" which, in my opinion, is of little value, albeit perhaps interesting, to the vast majority of non-native speakers...Not to mention many pitfalls in its use by the unwary.
Any student from advanced beginner on up can profit greatly from reading Marc Thil's works. I am a very advanced learner with many years of study of French as well as other languages and I enjoy them immensely. They are a very enjoyable way to keep in practice and are invaluable for those such as myself who are rarely exposed to a native French environment.
Even though this book, and his others, are for students ages 8 to 11, it held my interest. At times I found myself engrossed in the story, forgetting that it was in French, not in English.
(SPOILER) One thing really bothered me. What happened to the dog? After creating this lovable, helpful dog, he just disappears from the story. He no longer has a home because his master has been arrested. Why not have Marion bring him back home and adopt him? It made me sad that the dog was so disposable.
Ceci est un très bon livre pour notre classe française. Je lisais cette série de livres moi-même, quand notre instructeur français les a remarqués. Il prit le livre et me fit commander plusieurs pour toute la classe. Ce livre est maintenant le troisième de la série par Marc Thil que notre classe a lu. Nous sommes une classe de niveau intermédiaire. Ces livres sont écrits au sujet de l'ancien leval de 12 ans, donc ils sont parfaits pour nous. Tout le monde dans la classe a dit qu'ils ont appris plus de ces livres que tous les autres livres français que nous avons utilisés.

C’est (comme tous les trois précédents) un récit pour les jeunes, amusant, sympa et très, très, très palpitant.
L’auteur fait que les lecteurs pénétrent tout à fait dans la peau des trois protagonistes.
Comme je l’ai dit dans quelques autres critiques, cet auteur a été une découverte fantastique pour moi.
Merci encore, Marc, de m’offrir de beaux moments de lecture.
