JOSH AND THE IT delivers a fast-paced kids Sci-Fi action adventure chapter book for kids aged 6 to 11 years.
‘Techno-savvy super geek, Josh becomes a Space Kid. When Josh and Sam work together as a team, they capture the It, saving Captain Astra and the galaxy from destruction.’
Leonie Tyle of Woolshed Press/ Random House wrote an amazing review of this novel and offered names of Publishers who would be a “Good Fit”.
‘Your plot is strong and moves along at a good pace. Like your addition of humour … its child centred. You have successfully created a strong first novel in an action packed adventure series … It does have commercial potential.’
- Edens Landing State School invited me to read JOSH AND THE IT to a class of grade fivers for their SPACE theme. Closely I watched the children’s reactions learning first hand which scenes they enjoyed the most. I rewrote the food scenes and humorous scenes, amping them to the max. This experience became valuable market research.
