Peeves the Poltergeist
Engaging but disappointed there is no Kindle editionReviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 September 2018
This is a page turner and poses the question of who to trust and who should have access to the wealth of information provided by a Touchstone and how to use the info carefully. This appears to be only two of Norriss' titles to not have been released on Kindle despite the Portal, which is an indirect sequel in which Touchstones, Guardians and the Great Memory are mentioned, being available on Kindle.
simply nrilliantReviewed in the United Kingdom on 13 June 2014
Every so often, i ree-read this book and always enjoy it thoroughly. Not a wasted word, and the layers of the story fit perfectly. Norris is absolutely brilliant at leading the reader to the final significance of his tales. His best is Aquila, but The Touchstone provides the perfect springboard into imagination that any child, or adult, could wish for.

Bought for my sister, she had been trying to get hold of this book for quite a while. She was highly delighted with the book
This Kindle Book is wrongReviewed in the United States on 14 February 2019
This is not the book by Andrew Norriss, which is supposed to be a children's book about: Douglas is not the sort of boy to panic--until he meets a native of the planet Vanghar, whose arm has dropped off. Kai is being hunted by the Guardians of the Federation, and needs Douglas's help. But Douglas doesn't exactly know what to do with an armless, fugitive alien. That is, until he sees the Touchstone..." The book delivered to my Kindle under the Touchstone title (and with this description is about England in the 1800s. I would like to return this book.
