Pixar Are You Listening?
Five-star reviews for children's ebook GADGETS: The Great Escape puts it up there with Toy Story
"I loved this book and so did my granddaughter. If I say that it's a well paced, intelligently written and witty story for kids of all ages that brings Toy Story to mind, then I hope that will convey how enjoyable this book is. I enjoyed reading it to her as much as she enjoyed listening. Pixar are you listening?" says 'Seapoole' on Amazon's website.
And a review by 'Karamba' adds: "The characters are lifelike and endearing, with plenty of internal intrigue going on. I highly recommend it to children and adults alike and hope there will be a follow-up."
So what's the fuss all about? Well, when a bunch of unwanted kitchen appliances find themselves up for auction on an Internet site they decide to escape from their suburban home using only the powers they have as gadgets.
The full-length 69,000-word book is packed with loveable characters from Jane Dough the bread-maker to Deep Fat the fryer and Fiona the chocolate fondue fountain. Join them as they battle to survive in a series of heart-stopping adventures. And read of their endearing relationships as the 23 gadgets face the wrath of 12 years-old bully boy Zack.
GADGETS: The Great Escape is available to download for the Kindle at Amazon UK (http://www.amazon.co.uk/
Author David Hancock says: ‘I got the idea for Gadgets when I realised an old fat fryer was probably not doing my health any good. Then I saw just how many other appliances I hadn’t used for a long time and wondered what their world must be like, unloved, unwanted and abandoned.’
