We have received another free childrens’ book from Harper Collins for son1 to review. It is The Person Controller, the second novel by David Baddiel, who is more renowned as a comedian. Son1 was really keen to read this book as he loved David Baddiel’s first book, The Parent Agency.
This is what it says inside the front cover.
Fred and Ellie are twins. But not identical (because that’s impossible for a boy and a girl). They do like all the same things, though. Especially video games. Which they are very good at. They aren’t that good, however, at much else – like, for example, football, or dealing with the school bullies.
Then, they meet the Mystery Man, who sends them a video game controller, which doesn’t look like any other controller they’ve ever seen. And it doesn’t control any of their usual games. When the twins find out what it does control, though, it seems like the answer to all their problems. And the key to all their wildest dreams. At least it seems like that…
Son1 loved this book and here is his video review of The Person Controller.
The Person Controller, written by David Baddiel and illustrated by Roald Dahl Funny Prize winner, Jim Field is currently retailing in hardback on Amazon for £5 compared to a RRP of £12.99. It is also available as a Kindle edition and will be published in paperback in February. It is targetted at children, age 9+. It is published by Harper Collins. This book is highly recommended by son1.
