Brand new books, dispatch from our warehouse in the UK

From School Library Journal&newline;&newline;Grade 5-8–After having a nightmare while asleep on an airplane, Robert escapes to the restroom to recover. He looks in the mirror, sees a vision of another boy in his own eyes, and is suddenly pulled into a swirling vortex of darkness. He wakes up scratched and naked in a gloomy forest. At first glance, this is a story of survival, as Robert learns to feed, clothe, and shelter himself, but new questions soon arise. He is not alone, and help is offered, at first surreptitiously. When a monstrous bird attacks him and takes him to its treetop lair, Robert views his surroundings and realizes that he is close to his home, but somehow the small ditch that separates his neighborhood from a park is now a bottomless ravine. Compared to normal-sized people and places, Robert and his rescuers are impossibly small and constantly in danger. These are not The Borrowers and there is nothing cute or funny about their lives. The mood is eerie and chilling, and Robert's new friends feel they must accept their present circumstances in order to survive. &doublequote;Small is an alien planet, and that's where you live now.&doublequote; Still, Robert refuses to forget the past and is determined to find a way back. The first in a trilogy, this is a fast-moving, suspenseful science-fiction adventure. The ending is surprising and satisfying, bringing closure to the first leg of Robert's journey while leaving plenty of room for the sequels and reasons for readers to eagerly await them.–Susan L. Rogers, Chestnut Hill Academy, PA &newline;Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.&newline;--This text refers to the &newline;&newline;Hardcover&newline;edition. &newline;&newline;From AudioFile&newline;&newline;When Robert awakens to find himself in the wild, the last thing he remembers is being on an airplane with his family. He soon realizes that he is Lilliputian-sized and is being stalked (or helped?) by others. Steven Pacey is his sparkling self as he regales listeners with this combination coming-of-age and survival story. Pacey skillfully imbues Robert with the fear and fascination a young person would feel in such an alien situation. He also gives Robert's mysterious companions authenticity as he helps them and they assist him on his perilous journey home. Cross and Pacey maintain a sense of suspense and wonder until the last word. Kids will love this! S.G.B.
