‘How clever is this! This author speaks my language.’


Hello Everyone

It is comforting to know that there is still a minuscule sliver of the world that keeps turning kindly and so even when you are working on a brand-new project another project that you have recently been working on is still gently simmering away like a favourite stew on your favourite stove.

Falcon Boy and Bewilder Bird versus Dr Don’t Know in a Battle for all the Life of all the Planets, the first in the Falcon Boy: A Fairly Hopeless Hero trilogy has recently received another five star review.

In case you didn’t know, Falcon Boy and Bewilder Bird are the world’s worst superheroes and have been kidnapped by the world’s most feared super-villain, Dr. Don’t Know.

Dr. Don’t Know is planning to steal the answer to every question known to the world and replace them with a simple ‘DON’T KNOW.’

With Falcon Boy and Bewilder Bird out of the way, Dr. Don’t Know’s evil plan is likely to succeed unless Ellis, an ordinary girl with extraordinary poise and grace (modelled on someone very close to my heart) can prevent him.

If action, adventure, danger, mystery, superheroes, detectives, robots, music, comedy, thrills, laughter, computers, tears, pop stars, apocalypse, riddles, songs, dancing, unicorns, disguises, bravery and great long lists are your things then this book simply has to be for you.

If none of these things are for you then you should simply read Falcon Boy and Bewilder Bird versus Dr Don’t Know in a Battle for all the Life of all the Planets for the simple opportunity to find unexpected pleasure in something you expect to be unpleasurable.

Either way, here’s the latest FIVE STAR review from another satisfied reader:

“Have you ever wondered what to call a gang of toughs? A pack? A group? A gaggle? A fist? What about a trouble of toughs?”

How clever is this! This author speaks my language. His word-play develops each scenario and his characters are afforded magnificent rhetorical excursions, obscure words and phonic mix-ups. It’s a great read with lots of pace. Older children will be thrilled with ‘Falcon Boy’ but I will recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a trip away from the banality of life, no matter what age.

Tempted? Repulsed? Mildly annoyed? Or simply feeling incredibly benevolent?

However you feel you can try Falcon Boy and Bewilder Bird versus Dr Don’t Know in a Battle for all the Life of all the Planets for yourself in either paperback or electronic form by shopping at your favourite online emporium.

Take care.

He has recently written the VIRO series about a gang of teenagers struggling to survive in a world overrun by the infected. There are currently three books in the series and Book Four is on the way. VIRO is rapidly infecting the Amazon charts and gaining rave reviews along the way. Here's one of the latest reviews: 'I found myself sucked right into the characters and never-ending action and gore page after page. I very rarely buy books, but immediately purchased number two which I found equally as engrossing. Yesterday I bought book three in the VIRO series and instead of a good night's sleep I've got red eyes and a need for Red Bull! Fantastic series for all my zombie lovers out there!' Book One is currently FREE to download at the following links: http://bit.ly/VIRO1UKKindle http://bit.ly/VIROBOOK1 Barnaby posts weekly updates on his writing on his blog and you can follow these updates at www.falconboy.ie.
