Today in the January Magazine children’s book section, contributing editor Sue Bursztynski reviews Larklight by Philip Reeve.

Bursztynski feels that Larklight is a children’s introduction to the steam punk genre: fiction set in the Victorian era, but with science fictional elements.

“I confess that Larklight is my first taste of Philip Reeve’s fiction,” writes Bursztynski. “It won’t be the last, if this book is a good example of his work. It has been a long time since a children’s book entertained me so much, with a lot of laugh-out-loud moments.”

The full review is here.
