Editorial Reviews


'A rollicking good read for pre-teenage children and their parents.
It's funny, fast-paced and captivating. A real page-turner.'
   Maggie Rainey-Smith, Beatties' Book Blog

'... science fiction done really well. It's fast-paced, warm, and
recommended for the tween in your life.'
   Bookie Monster

'An excellent Kiwi kid sci-fi novel ... very enjoyable.'
   The Southland Times

'Amusing ... action-packed ... will appeal to both boys and girls from about
nine or ten upwards. With spacecraft, aliens both friendly and antagonistic,
and male and female main characters, it's a great read.'

Reviewed on national television! (First broadcast on TVNZ's Good Morning show.)

From the Author

Too Many Zeros is the result of a programming error. Just like Tim in chapter one, author Geoff Palmer punched the wrong time into his microwave to heat a snack; twenty minutes instead of two minutes. And just like Tim, he popped the door early, leaving time on the microwave's clock. Spare time.

'What,' he wondered, 'could we do with that if we could somehow save it up?' This book -- and the whole Tim Townsend series -- is the result of that question.

And there's more to come! Look out for other books in this series:
  • Too Many Zeros
  • Lair of the Sentinels   (due December 2015)
  • The Man with the Missing Jaw   (due early 2016)
  • Book 4 - no title yet   (due mid-2016)
  • Book 5 - no title yet   (due early 2017)
