Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5-7-In this episode, Devin and Frankie once again go through the library's zapper gates, this time to be transported to London in 1872 just in time to accompany Phileas Fogg on his journey. While the description of the librarian will cause media specialists to wince, the message that reading is important and can be fun comes through loud and clear. The short chapters make this an ideal read-aloud and a treat for reluctant readers.-Jean Lowery, Bishop Woods Elementary School, New Haven, CT Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
