About this book

Some of the Kinder Planets

Tim Wynne-Jones

Meet someone new… Harriet, who sees Mars and tastes pomengranates -- all in one day; Cluny, a girl who wants to publish a magazine for people with weird names; Ky, who lives in a geodesic dome deep in the country; Fletcher, the survivor of an almost fatal illness, who decides to paste the names of exotic places he would like to visit on his chest and stomach; Edward George, who made a discovery and became famous -- famous and forgotten -- on a hot day in 1867.

You'll get to know them all in Some of the Kinder Plants -- nine stories full of humor, surprise, fear and wonder, peopled by characters who are just like you, and yet very, very different.
