Editorial Reviews:

A story for young girls everywhere that will inspire them to be thoughtful, independent, open minded, and intelligent girls just like Jess and Nong May. In the back is a bonus travel section about Thailand. It offers future travelers basic facts about the country, what to expect when you are there, simple words and phrases, and pages for note taking. Whether you know a girl headed for Thailand or simply one dreaming of adventures and mysteries, this is a great book for her.  – Bambini Travel


This was a delightful book and a quick read. At right around 100 pages and 10 chapters, it is a great fit for the emerging reader looking to move up from young fiction or easy readers into longer middle grade fiction. There’s an illustration in every chapter to help with comprehension too. I really appreciated the diversity-focus of the book. The story does a great job of including culturally-specific details about Thailand and the Thais language in a way that is engaging and relevant to the story. There is a pronunciation guide and glossary in the back, and the character often provide pronunciation tips to each other in context as well. This is a great series to get girls interested in travel and exploring other countries. I will definitely be picking up more of these for my classroom! – The Logonauts


If you have children that crave adventure, they will love all the books of the Pack N Go Girls Series. These should be part of Primary School Reading Lists for classes like Geography or History, even Language Arts. – Crazy Little Family Adventure


There are so many lessons about traveling as well as about the Thai culture built into the story. Readers do not even realize the book is educational though as it is just fun and when finishing a chapter the reader wants to read the next one. I was begged many a night for another chapter and I must admit I found it hard to say no most nights. – Crafty Moms Share
