Customer Review

9 May 2008
A work colleague recommended this to me. At first I thought 'this is nice' but as I read on, the story became intriguing, much, much more than nice! I loved being a kid again. There is an innocence about this book that is definitely unique but the story is one that really, really pulls you in. I just needed answers! Great, great bit about the mobile phone. Pure genius how they managed to charge the battery in 1942. There's a lot of scientific stuff boys will love (as well as the girls of course). Archimedes Spindlethrop is amazing.
The illustrations are so different I love how Carrie King uses kids as well as expert illustrators.
Can't wait for BOOK TWO. What an epic ending!
So is C.K. the new J.K. then? I definitely think so!
