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!


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".

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
