This is definitely a children's book, but I must be a child as I really enjoyed this.

This is the second book about Anne Droyd and her friends Gezz, Malcolm and Luke. I haven't read the first book, so wasn't quite sure where Anne came from or why she was with Gezz, etc, but to be honest, I just accepted she was there and it didn't detract from the story.

I really liked the character of Anne. Being a robot / cyborg and learning everything as she went along meant she would say exactly what she wante
Will Hadcroft's ingenious robot heroine returns for a new adventure. What makes Anne so intriguing is that the author is careful not to anthropomorphosise her. She is not a super-powered little girl, she is an intelligent machine that often sees the world in a very different way to her young human friends. This proves to be a good source of both humour and drama. Plus we find out more about Anne's abilities and new James Bond-esque gadgets hidden within her arms and legs.

My Anne Droyd series for children has a loyal following. It tells the story of three young secondary school kids who become guardians of an android (robot) girl.

Anne Droyd and Century Lodge is the adventure where they discover her and smuggle her into school. Anne Droyd and the House of Shadows is about their vacation
