The Lovereading4Kids comment
Chosen as one of the Top Ten Best New Books for Children 2015 by Andrea Reece. Danny Wallace is well-known as comedian, actor and TV presenter. Now he’s a children’s author too, and a very good one. Hamish lives in Britain’s fourth-most boring town but life gets very exciting when one day Hamish notices that the whole world has stopped: planes; cars; people. Everything in fact - except him. What follows is a fast moving, funny sci-fi adventure. There’s lots that’s very silly but some sharp one-liners too and droll descriptions. Hamish and his friends are engaging characters, and the baddies something else altogether! This will have anyone aged 8 and up in stitches. ~ Andrea Reece

Hamish and the Worldstoppers by Danny Wallace
What would YOU do...if the whole world just stopped? Yes the WHOLE WORLD. Birds in the air. Planes in the sky. And every single person on the planet - except you! Because that's what keeps happening to ten-year-old Hamish Ellerby. And it's being caused by The WorldStoppers and their terrifying friends The Terribles! They have a PLAN! They want to take our world for their own ...Oh, and they hate children. Especially if you're a child who knows about them. Hang on - You know now, don't you? Oh dear. Can Hamish save us from the WorldStoppers? Only time will tell!
