Summary

From million-copy best-selling author David Baddiel comes a laugh-out-loud and inspiring new adventure for all listeners of eight and up, that is ahead of its time – 1,001 years ahead, to be precise....     

The year is 3020. Pip@256X#YY.3_7 is lonely and bored: she goes to virtual school on her G-Glasses, she has only a talking cat and parrot to hang out with and she can’t even leave her LivingSpace due to the extreme heat and floods outside. Until the day that Pip explores a glowing ring in a lab and finds herself in a warehouse, in 2019. Where she meets boy-inventor Rahul – who is also lonely and bored. 

Together, Rahul and Pip are no longer lonely. But they have a whole load of new problems, including hiding talking animals from Rahul’s parents and finding a way back to the future. Plus – just maybe – saving the world.... 

Future Friend is a terrifically entertaining time-slip adventure that combines action, laugh-out-loud humour and the importance of friendship, in a story that asks the question – what would happen if your best friend came from the future?

Fun or boring?

This book is a fun and enjoyable book . I would say that if it was I bit more daring or funny it would be more enjoyable so I recommend that children from 10-12 should read this book
