It's a spaceship from the past - can it change the future?

Review by

Children's books don't have to be deep to be great. And this one is not deep but it was a very good and funny read. Two 11 year old boys stumble upon an ancient hidden life-raft from an alien civilisation - and decide to keep it to themselves. Formerly the two worst students in their year in school, they surprise their teachers with their sudden enthusiasm for archeology, history, geology, mathematics and Latin!This book was very funny, fast paced, slightly absurd, and yet also highly believable (well... except for the whole UFO thing). I enjoyed it very much and have already suggested my daughter read it!
