More About the Author

John Peel was born the day before the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939. His 38-year career as a radio DJ is the stuff of legend and the bands he went on to discover too numerous to mention, though David Bowie, Roxy Music, T Rex, Genesis, Joy Division, New Order, The Smiths, Radiohead and the White Stripes would do as a start. He lived in Suffolk with his wife Sheila and their children William, Thomas, Alexandra and Florence, plus various dogs and cats, until his death in October 2004.

Dear Mr. John Peel,
I love your books! I think it's interesting having a new fantasy book series that incorporates some of the less widely used characters, like the centaurs, the sphinx, and the ice dragon, to the unicorns, wizards, and kids with magical power. It always interests me to view how writers portray the opposite sex in characters, and I approve of Hellaine. They are all believable, lovable, human characters, and that is perhaps your major selling point. I also like how all the book covers mold together to form one design! However, the suspense is killing us! Keep writing, Publish those books faster! We'll be waiting at the bookstore.

Kids who are reading this, if you like this, you'll probably be interested in another book series I've read. Patricia C. Wrede's "Dealing With Dragons". It's about a teanage girl who is a very improper princess, who like Hellaine, is bored with her royal duties of curtseying and needlepoint, so she voluntarily becomes a dragon's princess, and aids the dragons in their battle against the evil magic-stealing wizards.

My friend and I were the first to dig into the series in our class and each of us would get a different book. Like, she got #1 me #2 and so on. Everyone one else who would look into the books loved them as well. The book of Earth is a great book as well as the others. I especially like the high amounts of fantasy and all the other characters with their opposite personalities. I hope John Peel would write the series all the way 2 1,000! I recommend this book along with the rest of the series to everyone. (And another great book by John Peel is The Golden Compass. There are characters like the ones in Diadem (such as armored bears) in it.)

I liked the book ,it was pretty cool.The problem I have is that John Peel sets it up so you have to buy the book in order to finish the story.That is so unfair and wrong.Then when you get the next book there are major timelapses.Like in book 4 when Score faints,In book 5 he's already on a couch. All in all I'd give it 5 1/2 stars.I do like the characters.Helaine is probably my favorite.She's a girl ,but she's tough and really resents it when people make fun of her because she's a girl.

Great for people who like New York. Provides an interesting look at the city from two other points of view. One from a girl from the medieval past, another from a boy of a virtual reality future. I learned a lot about New York I didn't know before, and with what I knew already, I could solve the clues before the characters did. Well, most of them anyway.

I got this book last week. I thought it was really good (and it has some really surprising parts). You also learn some more about the characters (who'd ever thought that Helaine would be fascinated by ZIPPERS?). And you meet Score's dad (Bad Tony Caruso). I loved it. And now I really, really can't wait for #6 Book of Nightmares. Don't fall asleep, Pixel...

Oh god, Score can't die! Who's gonna argue with Helaine?! Anyway, my favorite part is when Helaine beats up Brio and his gang. (Don't you wish you could have her for a bodyguard?)I was expecting Pixel to walk up to a skyscraper, smile, and say "I bet THAT building could do a lot for me!"...
