Featured Review

C.J. Murray wastes no time transporting the reader to a fantastic world of adventure inhabited with colourful characters in vivid & theatrical situations.  We immediately embrace and relate to the heroine, Shayna Gladstone, a likeable underdog with a strong desire to escape the torment of teachers and a tiny stature.  Young readers and parents alike will want to walk side by side with Gladstone in her "Search for the Scientist". 

Scott A. Hurst, Playwright, Director and Stratford Shakespeare Festival Acting Alumnus
