    A great story to read to your children

    This is the second installment of the Norby series and launches itself from a few days after first novel ended. The plot devices and character motives are delightfully un-complex and angst-free. Each chapter is an ideal length for a child's bedtime story, and there's ample direction suggesting appropriate character voicings. The entire Norby delighted all three of our children in their turn.
