What a great story for children! Benji Franklin has already saved the world twice because he is brilliant at problem solving and this book contains two more adventures. The first concerns saving an island from earthquakes and the second stopping criminals gaining money by syphoning money paid for electronic transactions into their own accounts rather then the company selling the goods. Benji is a school boy but his Headteacher has agreed he can miss some school providing he catches up on homework and assignments – and doesn’t have too much time off school. Find out how another pupil manages to access his secret office and his computers! Two action packed stories for seven to eleven year olds that will have them eager to read and keen to find out what happens next!
As a teacher, I highly recommend this book because it is an engaging read that will enthral children, encouraging them to keep reading. It is clearly presented with images to enhance readability and understanding. Having a children able to solve the problems of grown ups – and make significant money from doing so – will certainly be something child readers will like and the adventures are well thought out, too. I have no hesitation in highly recommending this book for children who are able to read independently and ready for longer, more complex stories which are divided into chapters.
Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too,
for letting me read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
