A hugely exciting and playful mash-up of video game and history that’s why I liked it. It was very different to the usual books I read and I really liked it.
I think anyone who likes a bit of everything; a bit of history and computer games combined, would adore this book. It was amazing. I loved every second of it and would recommend to any age.

Wonderscape is a book in which I have no words to describe it as it was so brilliant that I was rendered speechless at the end. Although it started at a moderately slow speed, it swiftly began to pick up the pace and soon was moving at the speed of the Pipsqueaks’ race car – that is to say, extremely fast! I particularly loved that each hero (or historical figure) pioneered in a different area of expertise and how the world they inhabited suited each hero so uniquely and the interactions the heroes had with each other at the end… Read more »

I really enjoyed this book. It was an awesome combination of video games and history. I wish there was a part two where they go on another adventure. My question to the author is will there be a sequel?

David, Moulsham High School

So far this book seems pretty good. However, as the plot of it is that they are in some sort of game, it would be do much better if it was an actual game!
Also, are all the people in this book actual people who lived? That’s all I really have to ask.
I would definitely recommend this book to people who are my own age.

This book is full of adventure. It is very imaginative and I was able to figure out a problem before the characters. Maybe a sequel would be very nice and fun!

I know they say don’t judge a book by it’s cover, but at the first sight I knew I was going to enjoy it. I loved the fact that all the clues needed to solve the puzzles lie right here in the book. This kept me engaged with each clue leading to the next, all participating in the overall plot. The idea of an in reality game intrigued me alongside my love of history.

My question for the author is how do you get inspired?

10/10 recommend for everyone.
Please do a sequel.
Thanks.

This is a great book! Lots of mysteries to solve. There a mixture of adventure, suspense and detective work. It’s not exactly my type, however the plot is really fascinating. Reading may not be my sort of thing but this was very engaging.

I would like to ask the author what is her favourite genre to write or read?

Olivia, Moulsham High School

I loved this book! It is thoroughly enjoyable and I would recommend it to ALL! The character emotions and plot twists spiral this book into different directions every time. No matter what situation, there is always a problem, but with courage and teamwork, the characters always seem to pull through. This book demonstrates courage, kindness and intelligence with a hint of adventure and action.

I would like to ask the author what inspired her to write this novel?

Thanks.

Wonderscape is a brilliant book and my parents literally had to grab the book out of my hands as I was reading it non-stop. It was just too good to let go and I can read it again and again.
Maybe, the author should consider writing a sequel.

Got to be fast on this entry, i only have 34 hours, 17 minutes and 54,53,52 seconds before i turn into protoplasm AKA snot ( hope you get the joke ) I’m really enjoying Wonderscape so far. The hunt for Milo Hertz is well under way. One of the best books so far. Highly recommend if you haven’t read it yet. I’m learning so much more about historical heroes( Tomoe Gozen is my favorite), also love the book as i am really into video games as well. Such a good book, cant wait to read more!

It had a good plot. It was quite episodic, though – they had one adventure in one realm and then another in the next, and not much link between them. I didn’t like how much help the children had to have from the historical heroes in order to save themselves. The idea of an in-reality computer game was a great idea for a book. It definitely made me wonder what computer games will be like in my lifetime.

Kylesh A, KEGS

This was a fantastic book! It is a fusion of history and adventure gaming.
I liked the plot of the book, that 3 very different children are caught up in the same thrilling adventure. Every page of this amazing novel is filled with imagination and creativity, using charcters from real life as well as fictional charcters. I would rate it 10/10 and recommend it to any age.

I really loved this book! This is definitely a book that I would read again. I was sucked into this book from the very first page, I enjoyed the way the characters had to work together to get back home. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a nice quirky book with plot twists and a bit of mystery.

Wonderscape The book wonderscape is about three main characters (each of whom have a distinct personality trait) who enter a ‘wonderway’ (a magic portal) which takes them ~453 years into the future. They are inside a reality video games called wonderscape. They have 57 hours to find the time key inventor to get though challenges and to get home. Overall, during reading I have noticed that the grammar is good. I have also noticed that the vocabulary used remained consistently above average. The plot and story itself is vey hooking and makes me want to read it for days non-stop.… Read more »
