I’m thrilled to have just discovered another 5★★★★★ review for Falcon Boy and Bewilder Bird versus Dr Don’t Know in a Battle for all the Life of all the Planets has just been posted on Amazon and thought I would share it with you. The book is currently FREE to download in all digital formats at Amazon and Smashwords so why not pop along and see what all the fuss is about?
As we all know only too well, positive feedback is such an amazing thing to receive so many many thanks need to go to Mick Jordan for very kindly reading and reviewing Falcon Boy and Bewilder Bird versus Dr Don’t Know in a Battle for all the Life of all the Planets.
“Windy is standing by, ready to run really fast.”
“The something she bumped into was very solid and very metal and it very hurt her arm.”
The quotations above perfectly sum up the style of this novel. It is child-like and witty but always charming. It’s like reading Terry Pratchett for kids. The characters exist in their own bizarre but completely believable universe and say perfectly sensible things that no sensible person would say. Or, as in the case of arch-villain Doctor Don’t Know, not say – anything except “Don’t know”. (It’s this approach to all questions and accusations that has got him to where he is in the evil underworld of Panic Town). Battling him are the (not very) super heroes Falcon Boy and Bewilder Bird aided by a little girl called Ellis. Ellis is the reader’s way in to the story and clearly there for the child-reader (or the child reader in all of us) to identify with.
There are numerous sub-plots and characters propelling the story along its merry way, and all of it told in a lively, entertaining style that will sometimes make you laugh out loud – often in recognition of the equally bizarre attitudes and concepts of the real world. Like popular teen-icons Doodah and their mega-hit “Hey! Ho! Giddy, Giddy Go! Go!”- the entire lyrics of which are – in the title.
This book is a really fun read and it is really fun to read aloud to any child open to a world of fun and adventure.
