What the Critics Say

"A Jules Verne-like concoction filtered through the sensibilities of Douglas Adams....The climax is an absolute hoot, and leaves the door wide open for any number of sequels. Ages 10-up." (Publishers Weekly)
"This wonderfully imaginative story would make a perfect gift for any adventurous preteen." (Children's Literature)
"This fun read will appeal mostly to fans of the steampunk genre." (VOYA)
