  1. Tim would you say your Lawrence Pinkley books are suitable for a 13 and half year old teenage boy? .
    I am looking for books for my grandson of this age. He is intelligent but I don’t know which end of the teenage scale these books fit into.

  2. Hi Audrey – Yes he would enjoy The Curious Disappearance of Professor Brown, esp if he has a good sense of humour and likes illustrations. Also the Moon Stealer series is good for teenage boys – bit of slime and alien goo but he should enjoy them. My son, now 11, has been reading the Moon Stealers since I started writing them 2 years ago.

    1. Oh fantastic Tim, thanks. We are trying to steer his interest back into reading again and encourage different genres and away from video games. These really do sound perfect. I am definitely going to buy them for him for Christmas. Thanks for the advice! 🙂
