4.0 out of 5 stars Dino zoo 27 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very good fiction book for 11 years and above.
My favourite bit was the zoo's burglary the description was so good I couldnt stop reading.
It may of been shorter than other fiction books but just as good.
I would really like a seqeul seeing as you left it on a very big cliff hanger.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, well written book!! 14 July 2012

I bought this for my son and he loved it. I must confess, I started to read few pages myself and I couldn't stop reading & had to finish till the end. The book is well written and every chapter is even more intriguing and exciting than the last. The author does extremely well to develop the plot and maintain the pace of the story. It brought me back to my childhood days and books like this is the reason I fell in love with reading. And thanks to this book and author I can see the same affection for reading in my son's eyes. The only criticism that my son had (hence gave four star, other wise it deserved five) is that the book cover was to childish for him. But I did tell him not to judge book by its cover :).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read - what happens next?!?! 16 July 2012
By Kadge42
I bought this book on a recommendation by a friend, to read to my son. He thoroughly enjoyed the story and was gripped by various high-points in the plot line. The title character of Edison is likeable, and my son could easily relate to his experiences in this adventure. After the first two or three chapters, which we read together, I'm afraid I just HAD to read ahead on my own, because I needed to know what happened next! Each chapter finished cleverly tempting the reader to go on, and curiosity got the better of me, so I read to the end in one exciting evening. I and my son have now finished the book and eagerly await the second installment in this adventure!

5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping read 26 May 2012
By Jon
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book to my eight year old daughter. This was a great 'chapter book' to read to kids. I only needed to change a few words to make it a fantastic end of the day read.
My daughter loved the book and was especially gripped by the part where Edison was trapped in the tower and when he was pushed in the tank.
Hope to read the sequel soon ... It finished on a cliff hanger ...when's it due?
