More About the Author

Philip Reeve is the creator of one of the most brilliantly inventive worlds in fantasy fiction. He won the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize with his Mortal Engines series, as well as the Nestlé Book Prize - Gold Award and the Blue Peter Book of the Year Award. He has been short-listed for the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year Award and the WH Smith People's Choice Awards. Here Lies Arthur won the prestigious 2008 CILIP Carnegie Medal. Philip Reeve was born and raised in Brighton, where he worked in a bookshop for a number of years while also co-writing, producing and directing a number of theatre projects. He is a talented illustrator and has provided cartoons for many books, including several titles in the Horrible Histories series, and the brilliant Urgum the Axeman books written by Kjartan Poskitt. Philip has been writing stories since he was five, and Mortal Engines was the first to be published.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Tongue in cheek humour about killer-mind-controlling sprouts. A fast paced book, with a few well aimed pokes at Buster's resistance to swotty things like joining the school band, gardening and making friends with fake cousin Polly. Don't expect the depth and complexity of "Mortal Engines", just a good chuckle and the clever use of parody. I enjoyed spotting references to several well known veggie-sci-fi-horrors, although the book itself is funny rather than threatening. Favourite chapter title "Crouching tuba, hidden sprout", favourite characters "The Quirke Brothers". Reeve creates a sci-fi B-movie atmosphere, a kind of Triffids meets Ghostbusters, set in a quiet London suburb. It's great to see more scifi about for this age range, a genre you often have to scratch around for in children's writing. Every 9 yr old should have one!
