Jake and his friends are excited to be at the Robot Games until their cyborg friend Henry starts acting stranger than usual. Is it his recent upgrade? Or is something sinister going on?
The book goes straight into the action so no boring parts to put you off the book. I am trying hard to collect the series for my sons as they have read the first one (well a bit of reading the first two chapters by Mr 6 and then me reading the rest of the book) and they have asked for the rest of the series, not sure who told them that you can see how many books there are by looking in the back cover but Mr 6 knows that trick and he knows there are more books.
There is a surprising twist to the story, I kind of guessed that things weren't right with Henry but never guessed exactly what had happened. The chapters are short and easy to read, if you can only handle one chapter at a time it would only take about ten minutes to finish. I read the entire book in about half an hour but that is me and I do speed reading.
Space always interests young kids and this series is great with the exploring around space and the different things that happen in the various parts of space. There isn't a lot of scientific facts used in the books but then young kids aren't interested in facts and figures.
I would recommend this book to anyone with an active imagination and who wants to get the kids into reading.
