Reviews

'What do you get when you mix Tintin, James Bond, and The Famous Five together? You get Richard Newsome's Billionaire series...The Crystal Code is Richard Newsome at his best!' Christchurch Kids Blog 'Filled with secret passageways and deadly booby traps, you'll be on the edge of your seat!' K-Zone 'Weird dreams, kidnapping, attacks by bandits, hectic chases and eerie explorations in archaeological sites...slapstick humour, verbal wit and a pervasive spirit of youthful exuberance.' Magpies 'A rollicking good yarn.' Weekend Herald 'I loved this book. I really did. Ever since I got the first book in this series, I was on the lookout for more! The characters - Gerald getting tangled up in relationships - and the plots were just fantastic.' -- YAAR-A reviews Corinna, age 13, Canberra, Australia 'An irresistibly fun-tastic tale that's virtually guaranteed to keep youngsters reading, chuckling and desperately waiting for the next book in the series.' Independent Weekly 'Plenty of plot twists to keep readers guessing and eager for Gerald's next adventure.' Magpies 'Move over, Tomb Raider, and stand back Indiana Jones. Gerald and his friends are hot on the action and exotic adventure in this pacey final instalment of the Billionaire series.' Reading Time 'Ridiculously entertaining fun...A fast-paced, tongue-in-cheek romp.' Magpies
