Living with his Grandma is ok, but when Gran heads off on a knitting holiday, Finn’s Uncle Al comes to look after him. Having lost both parents, his dad Ethan to a lab disaster, and more recently his Mum to Cancer. Spending time with his uncle Alan, is somewhat of a time out from his situation. Life becomes a bit more of an adventure, as the pair head off on a road trip. Al, the mad scientist Uncle is summoned to a meeting. The only person who can help ave the world from a lethal bio-weapon, Al shrinks down a crack military team. But disaster as Finn is shrunk too, at just 9mm what will happen next…

You will have to read more to find out, this is a fast passed and sometimes confusing book, that I feel is suited more to older readers. With a smattering of humour, and plenty of scientific terms, there is plenty to keep you reading. I think those with a love of adventure and excitement will enjoy this book, and when the boy is a little more confident, he too will enjoy reading Infinity Drake.

Infinity Drake from Harper Collins is available now in hardback from bookstores and online RRP £12.99 recommended for ages 9+. Find out more from the Infinity Drake website.

About the author


  1. I think I would do a ‘Flat Stanley’ and get posted! I quite fancy going back to New Zealand!

  2. I saw a dolls house that was an exact copy of a stately home … daddy, I’m coming home.

  3. I would sneak into my sons backpack and see how he really behaves at school…. They tell me he’s good at tidying away after himself, but I don’t really believe that as he never does at home!!!!!!

  4. i would get in my kids pockets and go to school with them to see what the teachers are really like.

  5. I’d go to my little girls playgroup and watch her play whilst she can’t see me 🙂

  6. I would spend my time on a desert island! With my family of course, but no technology, right back to basics! 🙂

  7. i would go down the back of the sofas – just to see whats down there, then go on the cats back to see what she gets up to 🙂

  8. What an opportunity to be the fly on the wall, one would have to hope it didn’t last too long as it might get lonely after a bit, but initally what fun could be had

  9. I would get a pet bird and make him fly me to the clouds and see the world in a different way

  10. I’d go into the garden and play with the mice! I’d make sure to stay away from the cats though! :L

  11. i’d go to school and watch my children learn and see how they act with me not around 🙂
