Danny Chaucer's Flying Saucer by Christopher Peter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
When the author gives his protagonist Danny a famous writer's last name, Chaucer, I know the book is going to be entertaining. Danny Chaucer's Flying Saucer by Christopher Peter is an adorable read for the tween set with flying saucers, bullying and a dead end town. Danny is left lonely when his best friend moves to Scotland, but soon finds himself mesmerized by the possibility of alien spaceships landing nearby. Danny and Natalie Ford, a girl in his class who is the constant target of bullying, form an unlikely friendship. Danny and his new friend want to uncover the mystery of the flying saucer; this may be the strangest thing ever to happen in their small town. A creative cast of well developed characters pulls the plot along smoothly, Captain Frost, Uncle Colin, but especially the Brain on Board, which was perfection with a cockney accent to boot. A great start to the series with wonderful characters in Danny and Nat.
