Book Description

When the greatest minds at the Institute of Alchemic Sciences launch their portal into another world with the express intention of kidnapping an atomic scientist, they can little imagine that they will net themselves two young and very bemused children instead.
Abandoned by their captors and left to fend for themselves in a foreign, steam-powered world, things look grim for the dimension-hopping youngsters.
That is, until Institute Director, Doctor Rheingold, realises that the knowledge the children have of their own world could be useful to his ambitious plans and is desperate to get them back.
Embark on a voyage through the steampunk world of Albion Magna with crazy vehicles more dangerous than practical, talking animals, mad scientists, formidable housekeepers, airship chases, and two kids who just want to get home.

5.0 out of 5 stars A 'must'. Buy it! 23 Aug. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
A thumping good yarn for kids. I love it. At 10 years of age I would have been completely captivated. Olly and Tilly ring true and the wonderful animal characters add immensely to the ingenious but plausible plot. J P Paradise, aided by Nick Watton's atmospheric drawings, has created a gripping and imaginative story. It is great stuff for parents, grandparents, great grandparents - and teachers - to read to youngsters as a treat. The scope for amusing voices and accents is limitless.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read for kids, and not-so-kids 24 Mar. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
This book makes good reading for young teens. Its slightly breathless style leaves you wondering where the plot will turn to next. Based on an ingenious idea it is steampunk for kids. I enjoyed reading it, although a little more care in the editing would have resulted in more polished prose. It would read well out loud, although one suspects that the potential audience are too old to have stories read to them. The black and white illustrations add to the reader's experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping Yarn 23 Mar. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
I hadn't read a children's book for some years and did not have high expectations of this. However I took it on holiday and consumed every page very quickly. Paradise has an easy way with words and has created a swashbuckling yarn that appealed to me as much as it will to younger readers. Roll on part two.
