What if you were 12 and you stumbled across a wonderful flying machine that could do anything, including cloaking itself and you in invisibility? You'd do exactly what Jeff and Tom, a pair of underachieving British schoolboys, do in Aquila. You'd keep it a secret from the adults who would certainly take it away from you. Brian Cant gives a crisp British read to this tremendously likable story of two junior high students, who, stuck without an owner's manual for the good ship Aquila, find that only such long-avoided disciplines as physics, Latin, and geometry can give them the answers they need. So much fun, you don't mind the message about the value of learning. M.C. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 99]
