From Publishers Weekly
In this addition to his Vesper Holly adventures, she and her guardian, Brinnie, head to the remote desert city of Bel-Saaba in Jedera (in North Africa). "The author succeeds in combining impeccably paced adventure with a thoughtful, compassionate evocation of a foreign land," wrote PW. Ages 10-14.

From School Library Journal
Grade 6-10-- Number four in the Vesper Holly adventures, this time our always - intrepid heroine must return an overdue library book--a rare, valuable, very overdue library book--to the famed library at Bel-Saaba, in the North African country of Jedera. There's something here for everyone: a mysterious desert chieftain, a forbidden love, even an early flying machine. Following his formula in his own pleasant way, Alexander sees Vesper and her guardian Brinnie through encounters with slave traders, desert wars, and the evil Dr. Helvitius, Vesper's arch rival. As in the previous titles, Alexander does a nice job in giving a sense of reality to foreign (and fantastic) locations, filling them with "local" color. Light-hearted and breezy (although for more sophisticated readers because of the high reading level), this is easy to booktalk and sure to be popular with fans of the earlier Vesper Holly escapades. --Janice M.

When I read the Vesper Holly Adventures several years ago I instantly fell in love with the character, and the Jedera Adventure is one of my favorite of her escapades. I often daydreamed of grand adventures with the illusive bule-skinned man and the other unique characters and villians who grace every page of this fantastic work of literary art.
While I have since graduated beyond most young adult literature, I will never outgrow the fabulous works of Mr. Alexander. I hope we can see more of Vesper Holly in the future.

The plot is definately weaker then its friends, but it still is very good. Vesper is as smart as ever and Brinnie as dramatic. Four Stars.Published on Nov. 25 2001
