Editorial Reviews

Review

"Sure to entertain and delight any fan" - Midwest Book Review

From the Author

What happened to Junior science fiction?

Exciting, aspirational and mind-blowing ... young readers should be devouringscience fiction, yet new releases in this genre are as rare as abattery-powered space shuttle.
Over the past few years I've promotedreading and writing at countless schools, libraries and literary events. Young readers - boys AND girls - are fascinated by science fiction, yet they rarely get the chance to read it!

So, I decidedenough was enough, and I put my adult series on hold to write the kindof science fiction I would have devoured as a ten-year-old.

The result is Hal Junior: The Secret Signal, a funny, fast-moving novel set in the distant future. It's written in a similar style to my Hal Spacejock books, and doesn't talk down toyounger readers. I set out to write a realistic portrayal of life in the distant future, as experienced by a boy of 10 or 11. Well, realisticapart from bungie-jumping with elastic shoelaces, and that home-madespace cannon ...

There are more than 40 illustrations, sight gags and technical diagrams scattered throughout the book, many of themexplaining concepts in the text. There are also plans for the world'smost acrobatic paper plane.

Judging by the great feedback I'vehad from teachers and librarians, Hal Junior will really appeal toconfident readers aged 8+. Parents seem to love it too ...
