Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Has Molly Moon finally met her match? In the third installment of this hypnotic series, Molly catapults to India to learn more about the ancient art of hypnosis. But her entrancing education runs into a major roadblock when she encounters an arch-nemesis and, perhaps worse yet, a full quartet of younger versions of herself!
Publishers Weekly
In this third adventure about the heroine cum master hypnotist, she finds herself (or should one say her selves?) duplicated at various points in her childhood. Can she pull herself together? Ages 8-12. (Jan.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-If reading a Molly Moon title means navigating a variety of twists, turns, and sudden surprising revelations, then this addition to the series is no exception. Having perfected her hypnotic technique and defeated her villainous uncle in Molly Moon Stops the World (HarperCollins, 2004), the protagonist is caught completely unaware when a stranger kidnaps her beloved pug, Petula. It isn't long before Molly follows the pet backwards in time to 1870 India. There, she meets the repulsive Maharaja of Waqt, a spoonerism-loving cad who collects time-traveling crystals. Seeing Molly as an obstacle to his plans, he sets about kidnapping her at ages ten, six, and three, and as a baby. Now she must rescue her former selves and find a way to defeat Waqt, all while navigating some tricky time travel and taking care not to change anything in the past that would significantly alter the future. Byng plays fast and loose with her time-travel rules, often contradicting herself and making up explanations for problems encountered along the way. The breakneck speed of the novel, which reads like an elaborate chase sequence, will undoubtedly please fans and leave them howling for the next installment. Though sloppy, the plot is undeniably engaging and even attempts to explain the rudimentary differences between Hinduism and Islam. Just don't expect any condemnations of colonialism. This is an ambitious addition to the genre and a first purchase for any library in which the previous titles are popular.-Elizabeth Bird, New York Public Library Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Chapter One

The old temple priest stooped and slowly filled the metal lily-pad dishes with milk. As he did, sacred rats came scurrying from the shadows to drink. They were, he believed, reborn people. He chuckled as they ran over his feet, and he dropped a handful of sweetmeats on the floor. He nodded to the statue of the many-armed god before him, touched the purple mark on his forehead, then crouched down on his crooked heels.

He thought how pretty the big, flat dishes looked -- each was a white moon with twenty dark gray rats around it, sipping at the milk. The rats looked like furry petals, their pink tails flitting about like fronds in the wind.

He glanced through the temple's pillars to the sunny street outside. Three pony dealers were quarreling over some money and, nearby, children were chattering noisily as they watched some piglets snuffling in the gutter. Women in saris stood gossiping as they drew water from a stone well, and nearby a camel groaned as it was loaded. A beggar sat cross-legged playing a flute through his nose. A holy cow whisked flies with its tail and surveyed the scene.

Behind the cow was a rickety wooden paan stall. Here, a man with a pinched rat-like face, a big mustache, and a purple turban dismounted his horse. Straightening his silk coat, he stood impatiently, tapping the dusty road with a moccasined foot. The paan seller sprinkled some brown betel-nut powder onto a green betel leaf. He added grated coconut andaniseed, and squeezed some red sticky syrup on top. Then he rolled it all up and finally offered the breath freshener up to his customer. Without acknowledging him, the smart man took it and put it in his mouth. He dropped a few coins at the stallholder's feet and, chewing, mounted his horse again.

As the paan seller turned, an incredible thing happened. There was a BOOM, and the horse and its rider vanished into thin air.

The man fell on his knees in fear.

In the temple, the priest waggled his head from side to side. Then he bowed to the rats before him, put his hands together, and said a prayer.

    Beyond everything else

    I have read the whole molly moon seris at least 5 times and by far this book is my favorite one. I have each book on my nook and a hard copy so there is no excuse not to read molly moon wherever i go. as i have read all the books, i feel like molly and i have grown on each other and that i actually know what she is like as a person. That takes a lot of talent and writing ability so props to you ms. Georgia byng. I would recomend this book to any one from a second grader to a 90 year old her books are just that good. Everyone should read the molly moon seris and any other books by georgia byng. All i have to say it thank you ms. Georgia byng for this wonderful work of liturature. thank you love your biggest fan

    I never put the book down I hope they make a movie out of it!!

    i think the author really put a lot of detail into it. So when ever something happened you knew how it happened who it happened to and why it happened. I reccomend you read this book it may be long but it is so much fun to read about molly moons crazy adventure!!

This book is as great as Warrior Cats. I don't like books alot. A book has to be really good for me to like it and I mean really really good. So if you get a compliment on a book, you're really lucky. It's one great book!
