Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara Carroll Roberts
"The day had started out pretty bad," Ned Banks muses. "But it had ended with him saving the planet. That was good. And he had made a couple of incredible new friends—even if they did live about a hundred years in the future." What grade-schooler would not love to be in Ned's shoes? Sure, he is miserable at the beginning of this lively sci-fi tale—after all, he is a new kid at a new school and has no friends—but then Suzi and Roop, two kids from the future, get caught in a "timehole" and tumble out of his bedroom closet. Suddenly, Ned's life takes a decided turn for the better. Abbott keeps the plot humming along, but still manages to pack in plenty of descriptive details, creating a vibrant future-world for young readers to enjoy. The dialog crackles with energy; Abbott is adept at using quasi-technospeak to add humor. For example, Roop says "He's so starving he can't compute. Let's recharge," and Suzi replies, "Wait a nanominute." This is the first book in Abbott's "Time Surfers" series. Young readers who enjoy science fiction, particularly stories about space travel, are sure to become hooked on this story. Reviewer: Barbara Carroll Roberts
