Hal Junior: The Secret Signal

Hal Junior lives aboard a futuristic space station. His mum is chief scientist, his dad cleans air filters and his best mate is Stephen 'Stinky' Binn.
As for Hal ... he's a bit of a trouble magnet. He means well, but his wild schemes and crazy plans never turn out as expected!
Hal Junior: The Secret Signal features mayhem and laughs, daring and intrigue ... plus a home-made space cannon!

Written for independent readers aged 9+, The Secret Signal will appeal to kids with a sense of humour and a taste for adventure.

my review by Lucas Lawrence

HAL JUNIOR:  THE SECRET SIGNAL  should be renamed Dennis the Menace in Space.   What a fun story.  Loved the interaction between Hal and his friend Stinky.  Hal is different than other kids, he's the class clown, and he's not afraid to be different.  I like people like that.  
Hal is funny and smart.  Hates doing his homework but is smart just the same.
He lives on a cool space station.  
The only part I didn't like was the explanation of how food is made.  I understand why Stinky's face turned green.

I really liked this book.  I give it 5/5 stars.
