Review: Perfect for a class read to children age 7/8/9. Not the high language of the original but not the quick basic chapter book either. 17 chapters as I recall and rewritten for all to enjoy. My class loved it. We charted the places visited and the modes of transport and the underlying stories of Detective Fix and the love interest (her name escapes me) and the different time zones that lead to confusion were thoroughly enjoyed and debated.

Review: My own fault for not reading blurb properly but this is an abridged version and not what I was expecting. I found it lacking in detail and was a bit flat.
