Some reviews of The Bother in Burmeon

From review by Sara Crowe...

In a toy box at Billy’s grandma’s house, there’s an old kaleidoscope. Twist it, and the pattern of colours inside shifts and rearranges, just as you’d expect.

But this is no ordinary kaleidoscope. It doesn’t only rearrange shards of colour.

It rearranges time.

Suddenly, Billy finds himself back in 1962 in the company of a young version of his late grandfather. And then the real adventure begins. There’s a ride in an Austin Healey, a flight to the exotic land of Burmeon, some truly villainous villains, a fierce but friendly tiger, a fierce and unfriendly cobra, a perilous escape in a flying boat, and lots of fabulous feats of derring do along the way.

From review by Lou Treleaven...

I read the book with my ten year old daughter who found it very exciting and was begging me to keep reading each night. She gave it a 9 out of 10. Her favourite part was when Billy and his new friend Radar went through the underground tunnel to rescue Durga. She liked the clever ending too.

The book was a blast to read aloud. I loved all the RAF speak and Grandpop’s lines leapt off the page.

From review by Rosalie Warren...

In spite of the shock, it doesn' t take Billy long to find his feet (and his wings, as it were) in 1962, and soon he's on the way with Grandpop to the depths of South East Asia, where he pilots a flying boat, rescues a captive tiger, comes face to face with an Indian cobra and pits his wits against a mad dictator...

It's all very real - certainly not a dream - and very convincing to read. S. P. Moss knows her stuff about the RAF (I know - I'm an RAF crewman's daughter) and she has the language of 1962 and the sights and smells of that long-lost age off pat (again, I know... my memory just about goes back that far!)

But in spite of the retro feel there is nothing old-fashioned about this tale - certainly nothing slow and ponderous. Billy's adventures unfold at (at least) Mach 3 - and whatever your age, you'll be chewing your knuckles with the excitement of it all long before the thrilling (and rather moving) end.
