I enjoyed this book - Anna Ray age 8,
This review is from: Rebecca's World: Journey to the Forbidden Planet (Paperback)
Rebecca's World is written by Terry Nation. The book is about a little girl named Rebecca. She was sucked into her father's telescope and found herself in a scientist's lab. She left the lab and found a strange world. That was when she met Grisby, a green friendly creature. Then she met Kovak - an outwork spy and was saved by a super hero called Captain K when she nearly met an unfriendly, mythical creature which looks like jelly named a ghost. Rebecca realises that she is on a mission to find the last ghost tree, a tree which keeps ghosts away and Rebecca had to solve lots of riddles.
I really enjoyed the book. I liked it when the four friends think something terrible or nasty is going to happen they always find a way out. I think it was really exciting! I really liked the section where Rebecca had a feast of alliteration. This is where Rebecca ate food which had an adjective before them, for example: Amazing Apricots or Delicious Dessert.
My favourite character is Mister Glister, a very rich, naughty, funny millionaire. He always wants to gamble by giving all the diamonds in the universe just for a piece of wood. ( Ghost tree wood)
I think both girls and boys would enjoy this book from age 7 - 13. I think six year olds and under would not understand all the difficult words. Probably fourteen and older would think this book is too young for them and babyish.
