Product description

Product Description

"It's Dennis the Menace in space!"

The Secret Signal is the first book in a thrilling series by award-winning author, Simon Haynes.

Good clean fun! No swearing and no adult concepts.

Ten-year-old Hal Junior lives with his mum and dad aboard a space station orbiting planet Gyris, along with a large crew of scientists and his best mate, Stephen "Stinky" Binn.

Hal's way smarter than the adults on board, but instead of flying spaceships or inventing killer robots, what do they have him doing?

Chores!

Worse, someone thought it would be a great idea if Hal attended school!

Chores and homework! Could life get any duller?

Not today! Hal's class is set to tour a visiting spaceship. He's disappointed it doesn't have guns, missiles, torpedoes and space mines... but it's still an excursion!

Once aboard the visiting ship, Hal uncovers a secret plot. A plot involving kidnappings, sabotage and more.

He tries to warn the scientists aboard the space station he calls home — but as usual, nobody believes him!

Well, Hal's not giving up that easily.

He decides the only way to save everyone is to deal with the evil plotters himself — using a giant, home-made space cannon!

The Secret Signal will appeal to kids with a sense of humour and a taste for adventure.

This is the first book in the Hal Junior series. Book two, The Missing Case , and book three, The Gyris Mission, are also available.

* Simon Haynes is the winner of the Aurealis Award, Australia's premier award for science fiction.

About the Author

Over the past few years I've promoted reading and writing at countless schools, libraries and literary events. Young readers - boys AND girls - are fascinated by science fiction, yet they rarely get the chance to read it! So, I decided enough was enough, and I put my adult series on hold to write the kind of science fiction I would have devoured as a ten-year-old.
