Book - Predator's Gold
by Philip Reeve
I still don’t know what makes this a “children’s book”, perhaps it is in the omission of descriptive sex and violence? This book is quite simply genius – for children or adults.
I have read a LOT of science fiction. I have read a lot of “children’s books” and this series rate’s as high as any of have read. On par with Harry Potter and possibly above His Dark Materials (books 2 & 3 anyway).
It is completely original, very clever, well paced, wonderful characters. I can’t say enough. READ THIS BOOK!
DISCLAIMER: I work for Scholastic and nearly met Philip — twice
