The Lovereading4Kids comment

Opal Moonbaby is spending a year on Earth. A whole year! Martha can't wait to take her to school, to introduce her to her friends and to recreate all the fun they had during the summer. But things don't turn out quite as expected and before Martha knows it, Opal is off making new friends, doing new things and throwing herself into life on Earth - and Martha can't keep up. When Opal's Uncle Bixie warns them that the nasty Mercurials, enemies from their home planet of Carnelia, are on their way to Earth, planning mischief, Martha begins to worry. But Opal is far too busy making friends to be bothering about those stupid Mercurials. Besides, her eyes would z-ray them immediately and she'd dazzle-kick them all the way back to Carnelia. Wouldn't she?

Reviews

A really unusual book with two excellent heroines. www.parentsintouch.co.uk

Opal Moonbaby is one of the most entertaining and colourful characters I have had the pleasure of spending time with... I am in awe of the powers of Maudie Smith's imagination. How she comes up with such unique and entertaining characters and settings, I have no idea...I would buy this series for any young girl, who enjoys comical tales and knows the true meaning of friendship. A blooming, zooming, fantabulous read! -- Vivienne www.serendipityreviews.co.uk

The sequel to the brilliant Opal Moonbaby and a real treat for the tween girl. Highly recommended. The Book Bag

You'll also realise that this is a book for the girl who is comfortable with reading and can appreciate what great fun words can be. I giggled my way through the book - and at my age that is Simply Not Dignified. THE BOOK BAG

This is a touching story that had me laughing out loud. I highly recommend this book, it is so much fun! Bookblabblers blog

A magical adventure about friendship and family that's out of this world. tBk spring issue
