The Lovereading4Kids comment
Definitely a series that is not of this world but the world that Philip Reeve has so cleverly created is one that children can’t fail to get hooked on. The first in the series Larklight, was received with rapturous applause and this one is every bit as good. Brave characters full of cunning must save not only their own lives but the very life of their universe. Great stuff.
Philip Reeve is one of the most acclaimed and original children’s authors writing today. The third, in this series, Mothstorm, is out in paperback in July.
Larklight 2: Starcross by Philip Reeve
Art and his family are invited on a holiday to the Asteroid Belt, in a remote part of space near Mars. Taking the train, they arrive to discover that nothing is quite as it seems - the hotel slips curiously back and forth through time, and the guests behave rather strangely too. What is behind these bizarre goings on?
