  • Katie Johnson, age 10 - 'Definitely a book for boys!  Full of action and military detail.'
  • Alex Faulkner, age 9 - 'A confusing book that was hard to understand what was happening.'

Synopsis

Infinity Drake: the Sons of Scarlatti by John McNally

Infinity Drake - aka Finn - is off on holiday with his mad scientist uncle when they are summoned to a crisis meeting. Scarlatti, a lethal bio-weapon - an uber-wasp killing machine - has been released by a pitiless villain, with incalculable consequences for mankind. UNLESS Uncle Al can shrink a military team to track down and kill the beast. But then disaster strikes - sabotage! Finn gets shrunk to 9mm and has to jump in a tiny Apache helicopter with three soldiers in a desperate race to destroy the beast that's out there, very angry and many times their size...

About the Author

John McNally is a screenwriter who's worked with Aardman, Sony and the BBC. Infinity Drake is his first novel and was written for his children (who, of course, knew nothing about it). Once it sold to a publisher he finally showed it to his kids. Luckily, they liked it, and now millions of others will too...
