Let me just start by saying that the Molly Moon series is one of my absolute favorites. I'm aware that it's directed at a bit of younger audience but I still find the books to be thoroughly enjoyable. Molly Moon never fails to be entertaining. I found myself laughing, applauding, and loving every thing this story had to offer. 

They have a lot of potential and I think these books should have been a bigger hit. They're kinda recent, this is the 5th installment in the series and it was first publis

This book really meets the expectations set by the series. The Molly Moon series is not one that you feel "just need to end"; all of the books in the series are equally good. Although this is a children's series, it is worth your time if you are looking for a very quick, cute, and easy-to-read story. I am in high school, and I still love Molly Moon!
although i am still enamored with molly et al., in my opinion this was the weakest of the molly moon novels. i was disturbed by how often petula was knocked unconscious or injured, i hoped for some sort of twist involving lily that never came (otherwise, i really don't see what she added to the plot), and i really, really wished that molly, as the termite queen, had kicked some serious Hunroe arse w/the help of THOUSANDS of her masticating minions.

it was still good, but don't judge the entire s

In Molly Moon and the Morphing Mystery , Molly and Mickey are sent by a group of women to retrieve the second book on hypnotism from a man who, presumably, is going to use the book for evil. Partway through their quest, the twins learn how to morph--jumping into the bodies of insects, birds, and even people! While they hunt down the book, a strange man is also hunting Molly, whom he believes to be an alien. However, nobody is who they seem (especially when someone may be coinhabiting their body ...more
2.5 stars. My 8-11 year old friends are way more into this than I am. Maybe if I could time travel to my younger self (at the targeted audience age) and easily rank this 5 stars. ?? I don't care for the morphing bit at all. I love the idea of Hypnotism Volume 2 now in the picture.

Great book! Nice sequel of the last book! I loved the setting of the last half. If you enjoyed the 1st Molly Moon books, you will like this one too! Her new power are GREAT!!!! You can probably tell what they are from the title but..................................... YOU WILL LOVE THIS. make sure you read the ones before this so you understand it though.

I loved this book number one because it has a pug in it, but number two because Georgia writes beautifully and knows how a child feels. Sometimes some adults just write books about kids and how they feel like if they were adults. She writes like if she were Molly, and Micky and the other children. I also think th

My Review: It was okay, then it was great, then it was weird, then it was bad. The ending was a big disappointment. I wish Georgia Byng would write another Molly Moon, and that this one is better!

And, oh yes, Reader Ducky 1023 will be joining us for the next part. So don't look if you haven't read the book!

Esta saga, joder. Esta saga suposo una parte muy importante de mi infancia. Con ella compredí realmente el amor tan intenso que siento hacia la lectura. Recuerdo sumergirme en sus páginas, en las aventuras de Molly, y olvidarme de los problemas... Como he hecho innumerables veces después. Tengo que agradecerle mucho a Georgia Byng por estos libros, pero para que nos vamos a engañar, apenas los recuerdo. Detalles sueltos, escenas concretas, personajes y poco más. Y de verdad me gustaría volver a ...more

Can she a complet her promise or will she end up losing and watch people dying?
Read the book to find out.

Why I liked this book? Because Molly Moon is so outrageous my granddaughters can't believe it. I told Macy - she's your age, a hypnotist, mind reader, time traveler, and now she can morph into animal and human bodies! And, best of all, her dog is a pug.
Spoiler alert:
Of all her books, this one was a little preachy, although the method of imparting the information was good, it seemed like a bit much. I also was surprised how the author killed off all the "bad guys".

Molly and Micky Moon are set off on an adventure discovering new powers and find themselves transporting to different places around the globe. Molly is no ordinary girl but, just an average Moon family member. She soon discovers her new power 'morphing', which allows her to change and transfer herself into another being or object just by looking at them. On this journey she even gets the experience of being the queen of England! This gives you an experience of your own that you won't forget!

I loved this book like I knew I would. This whole series held my attention as soon as I started reading it. I actually read the last book first before I realized it was a series. I didn't have anything like this to read when I was growing up. I would definitely let my kids read these books they would love them. I highly recommend this book as I have all the others. Molly Moon is a great character and a joy to read.

Leí este libro de más mayor en comparación con el resto de libros de la serie pero me gustó tanto como el resto. Al ser una de las series de libros de mi infancia me parece tiene algo especial que no se va con el tiempo. En este libro los protagonistas tienen un nuevo reto y descubren nuevas habilidades, como en los anteriores. Pero cuidado, las apariencias engañan.

Fun book, albeit a bit predictable. There were plot twists with regards to the characters, but the way the book introduces them, it was not difficult to guess what ends up happening next. Morphing sounds like an awesome experience though! Hypnotism, time stopping, time travel, and morphing are the types of things that all kids (and adults...if I dare say so myself) love to imagine.
This a very good series. I first started reading this series when I was in third grade. My teacher read it to us for read aloud and from then on I was inclined to this series. This is a really good book and I suggest that kids 8-12 read it. Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did reading it.

Exceptionally well written Georgia Byng. I am looking forward to reading more of your books. I don't have much negatives on this book in fact I have no negatives at all. That's why I'm giving it a 5 star

Molly is sent on a mission to get the second hypnotism book from Mr. Black, but there's a problem. She's gotten who's bad and who's good all wrong. This book was a fun, and enjoyable read. I would recommend it to kids 8 and up.
I didn't listen to this one like I did the other in this series, and I have to say the performer made it much more interesting and fun than the performer in my own head. When it comes out on disk I'll have to listen to it anew.

Georgia Byng has done it again! Even though I am used to Molly running free without her parent's guidance, this wasn't half bad. I'd prefer it if she was still an orphan, though. Or her parents were less strict. Can't wait for the next one!
I just got this book to review. I haven't read any of them yet but I like the first chapter in this one so far. Is there a multicultural component? Has anyone discussed race/ethnicity in these books? What about the adoption theme? Any discussions?

This was the first series I ever really loved. I still find these books amazingly enjoyable and lighthearted.
This one was my very favorite out, and I loved the weather control! Such amazing ideas were packed into making Molly and Rocky and Petunia come to life!

I began reading the Molly Moon books when I was twelwe and I loved them. The experience is definitely not the same now that I am an adult, but this book does definitely not disappoint me and I am sure that twelwe year old me would have loved it. Georgia Byng is very creative, as always.

Books aimed for children have such excellent imagination layered within it, just like the very popular Harry Potter series. Georgia Byng strings these worlds and these characters so beautifully.
5 stars, definitely.

I was a fan of this series when I was younger and I read this one today! Even though it's not meant for my age group, it's still pretty amazing and I enjoyed reading it. Brought back memories as well!

This is a really good book. I would recommend it for kids older than 7. This book is a little long winded that's why I gave it one less star but other than that I think that this book was very good. Definitely go buy it.
