Review:

The irrepressibly plucky Molly Moon returns for a sequel and discovers a super-power more amazing than hypnosis in this even-better follow-up to Georgia Byng's best-selling debut, Molly Moon's Incredible Book of Hypnotism.

Molly Moon Stops the World begins with our 11-year-old heroine back at the newly-improved (thanks to Molly's mind-control powers) orphanage in Brierville. A disturbing meeting with Lucy Logan (Molly's guardian librarian from the last book) changes everything--Molly must stop a megalomaniac master hypnotist named Primo Cell from taking over the world.

Many elaborate setups and silly reversals of fortune ensue, as Molly and Rocky hunt the villainous Cell. The duo discovers that things are even more dire than expected (could this evil genius really be running for President?), and Molly soon stumbles onto her even-more amazing ability: She can stop time.

It's hard to resist the obvious fun that Byng's having here, as the story takes countless twists amidst frantic, page-turning action (older kids will especially enjoy the many wry nods at celebrities and advertising). Molly fans get an extra treat in the book's white-knuckle conclusion: Molly finally learns how she ended up at the orphanage...and the true identity of her parents. (Ages 9 to 12) --Paul Hughes

About the Author:

Georgia Byng grew up outside Winchester, in England, near the river Itchen, with three naughty brothers and a sister. Her dad was nature loving and her mum was very encouraging and warm. The nearby country lane with its many cottages was somewhere Georgia first found out about characters, for it was teeming with them, and she used to interview them. Otherwise she would try to sell these neighbours things she had made.

As a child she loved acting and so at 18 went to The Central School of Speech and Drama in London. After college she began to paint and write. She had always written poems and songs but now she started writing stories.

Her first were in comic strip, a medium that she worked with for five years. The Sock Monsters was her first published book in 1995 - a comic strip story for 5 - 7 year olds.

Georgia lives in a house in London full of old and new art, as her husband is the conceptual artist Marc Quinn. Marc keeps all sorts of strange things in the fridge - once he had to keep a Canadian frog in there as it was hibernating and had to be kept cold. They and their family, Tiger, Lucas and Sky love to travel, their favorite destination being India.
