(5* I love this book, 9 April 2008
By Pearl Robinson)

I have four children between 4 and 9 and am always on the lookout for good books. Felicity Frobisher & the three-headed Aldebaran dust devil is brilliant. I only bought it at the weekend and we'cve already read it twice. It's about a little girl who has a very bad friend, whoc comes down a wormhole from another planet. My girls loved it because they identified with poor Felicity and the boys loved it because Felicity's very naughty friend - Flummff - is a boy. And I enjoyed it even thought I'm, 41! - especially all the silly names, like Miss Sprint the PE teacher and Mr Floggitt the headmaster and Sharon Fruit, Brian Nylon and Virginia Creeper. The illustrations are great, like the one of little Felicity, the worst at French in her class, being hugged off her feet by the teacher after the pan-galactic Speaking Dictionary gives her the best French accent ever. I alreday know of Marcus Chown as a science writer so I was intrigued to find out whether he could write for kids. The story is fantastic and lots of fun and we learnt something about space too.

5* Wormholes, 21 April 2008
By Alison Jolly Lemur catta (Sussex)

What a wonderful story! I giggled all through it, re-read it, then seized the chance to read it out to 7 year old grandchild, who devoured the whole thing in two sittings. She has gone back to Scotland, so I am attempting to put it away without reading it again. What fun! - Mandy Pell
