12yo daughter loved this. Favourite Molly Moon of whole series. Plenty happening, misdirection, funny, cleverly written. Recommends for her age, not much younger readers (say 10yo upwards) because of complex story, not difficult words.

I passed this one to my 11 year old daughter. She has only read one Molly Moon book before, the first, and enjoyed that, and she was interested to try this one. It was a huge success with her from the start. She couldn't wait to take off the wrapper, and once it was off she liked the bright, jazzy design of the cover. She read it in about three days, (roughly about four hours devoted to reading), and asked for other Molly Moon books at the end of it. She did say she would have given it four and a half stars if that were possible, but only because it was over too quickly. It was funny, exciting, she liked the characters and situations, and it won her ultimate accolade - she went off to role-play out her version of the story with her friends.

This book was good, but it wasn't really a page turner. I would rather read the first book. The ending was poor, it ended too quickly and I was quite confused by the phone call and the queens visit. I did not like that people died in the book. Overall, a good read but not fantastic like the last few books. Perhaps I'm a little old at 12 to be reading these books. I prefer books such as 'his dark materials' trilogy.

My son had encountered this series at school and was happy to pick up this novel. He read it quickly, pronounced it entertaining if a little childish (he's 15). I had a look and found the language to be suitable probably for a slightly youger age group. Tellingly, he's not seekinhg out other books in the series.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This was the first Molly Moon story I'd read, and I found the first thirty pages or so slightly confusing, as there were lots of references to previous adventures and characters that rather passed me by. However, once I'd got past this opening and the new story had properly started, I found myself really enjoying the off-the-wall storyline, filled with its eccentric cast of characters and many plot twists and turns. Molly and her twin brother, Micky, are taken to London by their new tutor, the glamorous Miss Hunroe, for what she claims are educational purposes - only to discover once they arrive that in fact Miss Hunroe and her gang want them to go on a secret mission, to rescue a precious book which contains the secrets of 'morphing' - turning into another animal or person. But Miss Hunroe is not quite what she seems, and soon the twins find themselves on a dangerous adventure which involves an intrepid alien hunter, Petula the brave pug, hynopsis, mind-reading, and of course plenty of morphing.

The book is very funny, especially Molly's morphing experiences (she becomes a ladybird, a dog, an old lady, a rat, even the Queen of England), and I also loved the bad-tempered and rather batty ladies in Miss Hunroe's gang. Yes, the plot is pretty convoluted, but the story romps along at a cracking pace and overall, I'd recommend this as an original, entertaining and very enjoyable read for confident readers of 9+.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As the fifth book in a series, it is clearly expected by this author that the reader is familiar with Molly Moon and her history. Unfortunately as "MM and the Morphing Mystery" is the first book I have read, I was left a little in the dark. Ok I get that Micky is Molly's twin, but he's from the future and this is never explained. I get that Molly was raised in an orphanage, but now she is happily living with her parents but again this is never expanded upon. I appreciate fans do not want story lines repeated, but a brief re-cap would have been very handy.

That said I found this book thoroughly entertaining. Molly, Micky and pug Petula are great characters that are immersed in a variety of exciting adventures. The children are body borrowing animals from ladybirds to rats and later morphing into humans in an attempt to thwart their enemies who plan to control the weather and use this power to wipe out the world's population. Petula proves herself to be as quick witted as Molly and Micky, and from London to South America, and the National History Museum to a Casino, all three find themselves in some difficult scrapes that test their ingenuity and courage.

Review from my 11-year old daughter:

"As always, Molly Moon books are packed with excitement and mystery and you never know what is around the corner...
Molly and her twin brother Micky are taken to London by their new tutor the glamorous Miss Hunroe on a supposedly 'educational' trip - but Molly and Micky smell a rat and it just goes downhill from there. It turns out that Miss Hunroe and her 'ordinary' group of friends have heard about Molly's hypnotic powers and want her to get the second book of hypnotism from another hypnotist and a very powerful one too! its really funny in places especially when Molly morphs into a ladybird, a dog, an old lady, and even...wait for it...The Queen of England!!!!
I have read all the Molly Moon books and they never disappoint!"

I would add that, on the pre-release copy we got, the cover had a pair of googly-eyes which amused my daughter greatly. Not sure if these will come on the official publication....
