In the year 2424, it seems crazy that people once needed film to take photos. Max and Oscar – Bluggsville’s smartest sleuths – are shocked when they find a 400-year-old roll of film. They’re even more shocked to discover that it still seems to contain someone’s happy snap!

Unfortunately, they’re not the only people who realise how rare, and valuable, this photo could be. Max and Oscar are going to need all of their wits to make sure the photo ends up in the museum, where it belongs!

PRAISE FOR THE SERIES

Cameron Macintosh’s debut children’s fantasy sci-fi series for middle graders, Max Booth Future Sleuth, is a mind-bending, time-warping fun adventure about a boy and his robo-dog sidekick on a mission to uncover the truths about ‘ancient’ artefacts (Are the ‘80s really that ancient?!). The first book to send us looping back and forth between time zones is Tape Escape. Set in 2424, it is a comically suspenseful story that sees Max and Oscar in all sorts of strife, following the theft of the valuable, all-encompassing, legendary David Snowie-archived cassette tape from the hands of a maniacal musicology nutter. Certainly one to goggle over (or google if you’re under 20), for its fascinating reflections into technological history and advancements – Boomerang Books

With underlying themes of the importance of education, social class prejudice and having a place to belong, Stamp Safari is nevertheless a light-hearted, creative, witty and entertaining story with plenty of scope for discussion and learning potential. Tech-heads, adventure- and detective-lovers and Sci-Fi fans will certainly give this book their stamp of approval. – Romi Sharp

  3. a marvellous junior fiction series – kids book review

  4. Author and illustrator have seamlessly combined once again to create this specially designed chapter book for children from age seven, including refreshingly engaging and straightforward language and pictures that reluctant to independent readers can happily clutch on to. The other superb thing to note is that each title sets its world and characters independently, besides the common thread of themes, so pick up any book at any time, and you’re winning. Macintosh’s playful humour and expressive tone keep readers ‘in the loop’ and mesmerised the whole way through. At the same time, Atze’s black and white illustrations capture a non-stop, laugh-out-loud visual showreel of action and comedy. A handy notes section at the back of the book explains the history of film photography and the science behind how it works. This is a brilliant addition for parents and educators to develop a further interest / study in comparisons between technological advancements from then, to now and the possibilities of the future. – Romi Sharp
