    I highly recommend The 7 Professors of the Far North by John Fardell. I recommend this book because it is a great fantasy read, it has lots of action and has lots of humor. This book also has a sequel, The Flight of the Silver Turtle. This book has 217 pages and this book is set in Europe and some places in the Arctic. This book is also set in present times. In this book Sam (the main character) goes away to live with Professor Ampersand an inventor that his parents know. A simple vacation turns into an exciting adventure deep into the Arctic. Sam and Professor Ampersand¿ two nephews Ben and Zara go to rescue Professor Ampersand in the Arctic from an evil Professor Murdo. To stop Murdo from taking over the world they must use a secret code to get to the Arctic. The 3 main characters Ben, Sam and Zara all have differences. Sam is not stupid but is not as smart as Zara or Ben. But Sam always has his has his handy gadgets including his pocket knife and a few extra dollars when they come in handy. Zara is the oldest of the bunch and likes to be in control. She has a lot of people sense too. Zara does not like to make mistakes. Ben is really smart and has great mapping skills. He and Zara seem like they are the children of Professor Ampersand. My favorite scene is when Ben, Zara, and Sam are riding in the side car of Professor Ampersand¿s motorcycle. They are riding very fast and suddenly take a sharp turn and are heading straight toward the house, meanwhile Sam is screaming for his life and Zara and Ben are acting like they have done this a million times before. Suddenly out of nowhere comes are ramp that leads up to the window on the second floor but as they reached the ramp a loud explosion erupted and a shower of blue sparks came down from the top of the window. Luckily nothing got hurt expect for the ears because as soon as they got out of the sidecar the heard an enormous amount of yelling by there angry neighbor with an Irish accent. This is my favorite part because it has great humor and it shows you that there are many cool gadgets in this book.
