The second in this exciting series of adventures, the first was The 7 Professors of the Far North.

Of course they aren't the only ones trying to track it down!

Synopsis

The Flight of the Silver Turtle by John Fardell

Sam and Marcia are back in Edinburgh with Zara, Ben and Professor Ampersand. The friends are helping to build an amazing electric-powered flying boat when they stumble across an old photograph - a clue that leads them on to the trail of a long-lost secret invention that could change the world. But a shadowy organisation is also after the invention. Soon the children are caught up in a perilous struggle that will take them through dimly-lit museum galleries, up into the skies above Europe, down to the murky depths of Lake Geneva, and into the heart of a fortified Swiss castle. This is a breathtaking adventure of encrypted messages, aerial chases and astonishing secrets from the author of "The 7 Professors Of The Far North".

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
