The Isis Pedler by: Monica Hughes

The Isis Pedler
Monica Hughes

I read a number of Monica Hughes' books back in 1999 because she is the favorite author of a friend. Though some were harder to find, I enjoyed all I could lay my hands on.

This is another wonderful book by Monica Hughes. It is about some Irish space tramps, Mike and Moira Flynn, a father and daughter and his attempts to swindle a backwater planet. He ends up leading the world with their pseudo god, the robot guardian.

It was a wildly fun book to read and is part of the Isis cycle. Well worth tracking down for the young readers in your life.

(First written as Journal Reading Notes in 1999.)
