An excellent way to introduce children to science
A boy named Paul befriends a special raven named Barnaby. Barnaby was very opinionated and never hesitated to share his knowledge of the world. He shared the location of a portal to another dimension. Together, Paul, his bother Sebastian, sister Lynn, and Barnaby set out on an adventure. Their travels would take them to meet Albert Einstein.
I am a fan of any book that will interest in children I learning. The Wormhole Adventures: Travel is Relative is written in simple, easy-to-understand terms. The author introduces children to Albert Einstein, Charles Dickens, and Beatrix Potter. The Wormhole Adventures: Travel is Relative is a fun book that also happens to be educational. Parents and teachers this is an excellent way to introduce your children to science.

Well thought out
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this polished, well thought out extract. The author writes with a simple assurance that ensures the action develops and moves along at a nice pace. The idea of a childrens story having historical and educational elements is fresh and works very well, without being self-conscious or preachy, therefore boring. The characters are all well rounded, the dialogue sharp, and in tune with teenagers of today. On the whole, I feel this is a very impressive piece of writing, with that little bit extra to set it out from the crowd.

An Inviting story
This inviting story follows the imaginary exploration of Paul, a ten-year-old boy who is fascinated by the study of nature, science and many other hobbies. Paul’s adventure begins with Barnaby, a talking raven. Paul is accompanied on his travel through time by his sister Lynn, and younger brother, Sebastian. Together they venture to a time before their own, learning the theory of relativity by Albert Einstein himself. It is a very heart-warming, yet educational story that will inspire every child to ask more and more questions.
I thought the book was very fascinating. I enjoyed opening my mind to a place that only my imagination could take me. I even learned a few things myself. I never read Charles Dickens, but, because of Barnaby, I’m inclined to read, A Christmas Carol.

A fantastic journey of childlike wonder
The Wormhole Adventures: Travel is Relative is a fantastic journey of childlike wonder. The introduction of a talking raven in the introductory chapter sweeps the reader with a curiosity that could only be born the desire to believe. A grand adventure ensues between three siblings and the intelligent raven as the quartet travel through time to meeting an amazing man in history.
By the end of the novel, I was left wondering just who the kids would choose to visit next. As an aunt, I can not wait to read this book to my six year old nephew!
I highly recommend this book for those wanting to lose themselves in the wonderment of childhood and curiosity.
This is a 4**** Star book!

Sister Light: Book One: Of Shadows
All in all a wonderful book.
I thought the story was lovely. I did think the beginning felt a little slow, but when I got into the story, realised the beginning sat ok. What a great idea to bring in history to a story. Not only the child gets lost in the story itself, but learns of the past.
You've captured the characters well and have given them individual identities.
It makes such a change to read something a little different. I'm sure any child would enjoy this book, if not reading it themselves but having it read to them.
I love the cover of the book and is bound to attract the child's attention.
All in all a wonderful book. Well done!

Charming and very readable
The wornhole Adventures. P.M Russell: You have a cute story here. Your plot is very good and is perfect for the genre.
I could picture the children you describe them very well, like painting a picture. I like that.
I cant find any negatives to say about it. Your book is charming and very readable. I think many adults will also enjoy if as some light reading.
The dialogue had a nice flow to it and was easy to understand.
I can imagine this book being read for children as well as children reading it themselves.
You have a talent for writing, please keep it up.
10 out of 10.
