June 2023 Book of the Month
Looking for engaging fiction that will satisfy readers who love space, tech and all-out adventure? Look no further than Lorraine Gregory’s Interdimensional Explorers. With a cast of varied, relatable characters, and Jo Lindley’s expressive illustrations providing additional comic flair, this fast-paced story sets up a new series in spectacular, space-tastic style!
Twelve-year-old Danny lives on a sprawling estate, where he and his darling grandad, the estate caretaker, have been known to perform heroic deeds. When his granddad is taken ill, (cue Danny acting fast to save him), he discovers his granddad’s workshop is (wait for it..!) an Interdimensional Lost Property Office. And this comes hot on the heels of Granddad uttering the ominous words, “there are many worlds out there, Danny… many worlds.”
With his mate Modge in tow, a ginormous squid tasks Danny to pick up granddad’s job, with his annoying, perfect cousin coming in very handy as they undertake the huge mission of returning lost alien property to all dimensions of the universe.
As the stakes ramp up big-style, so too does a sense of having to work together, and a rollicking sense of zany adventure — top marks to Lorraine Gregory for crafting a fun story with emotional depth.
Can Danny save the universe and return all the aliens or will something get in his way?
This book is amazing I couldn't put it down. It follows Danny who's a 12 year old and nothing exciting ever happens to him. That all changes when he fall into a locker at his grandads workshop. Follow Danny as he goes on an adventure with his friends to return all the aliens. But what will they find while doing it which doesn't want them too?... Read Full Review
Hilarious sci-fi adventure where three friends save the multiverse and pick up an unusual, cute and very handy pet along the way.
This book is a hilarious sci-fi adventure about three friends who take over the interdimensional job Danny's' grandad when he's taken ill. They soon discover that there's a lot more to it than pressing a few buttons in the lost property office as they set off on an action-packed journey across dimensions to return some of the lost creatures. They quickly realise there's something not quite right with the new lost property hub and the too-good-to-be-true pair hoping to automate it. The story is jam-packed with imaginative beings and gadgets and the jokes keep coming thick and fast. There are brilliant black and white illustrations that bring the story to life. I'm looking forward to reading more stories about Danny and his friends in the multiverse in book two.... Read Full Review
