About the Author:

MONICA HUGHES was the author of over thirty-five books. She received numerous literary awards, including, in 1982 and 1983, the Governor General’s Award (then known as the Canada Council Prize) for Children’s Literature. In 2002 Monica was made a member of the Order of Canada. She passed away in March 2003.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-10?In 2092, 13-year-old Walt Elliot, who has grown up in Canada with his aunt, is summoned to join his father on the planet Aqua. Colonel Elliot is responsible for terraforming planets without intelligent life, making them more like Earth so that their resources can be used by colonists. Once on Aqua, Walt finds himself living with a fiercely disciplined, strong, unbending man, with touches of humanity only occasionally visible. The inevitable conflict arises when Walt, exploring an undeveloped area, discovers and befriends the planet's native inhabitants, large telepathic froglike beings who have stayed in hiding underground while observing the work that is gradually destroying their environment. A life-and-death race to save the planet ensues. The amphibianlike creatures are not clearly glimpsed or fully understood, and most of what readers find out about them is what they themselves tell Walt telepathically. The most interesting aspect of this story is not the alien environment or its inhabitants, but the changing relationship between father and son, and the greatest source of suspense is not the predicted giant flood or the ultimate fate of the Aquarians, but the actions of the Colonel when he discovers that the boy has been plotting against him. Hughes gives the Colonel enough humanity to keep him from becoming a total stereotype, and Walt is a likable protagonist whose adventures and growth will keep readers turning pages.?Lyle Blake Smythers, Library of Congress, Washington, DC
