Concept/World
The story is set on a space station which felt realistic and industrial.

Story
The story zips along with lots of laughs, mysteries and adventure. It’s like Dennis the Menace in space, great fun!

Characters
Hal Junior is great as the hero. I howled with laughter at his chemistry homework. Stinky Binn is good as the nerdy genius sidekick. The villains are suitably cartoony. I enjoyed the Teacher robot, too.

Presentation
I liked the cartoon cover of this book and loved the illustrations. They worked well even on kindle and added a new dimension of humour to the story. It’s just the right length for younger readers.

Overall
I bought a kindle copy of this book because I’d enjoyed the “Hal Spacejock” story so much. I liked The Secret Signal so much that I’ve bought a paperpack version of it too for our class library. I had to buy it on the Amazon US site and pay shipping to the UK, but I know that the kids in my class will just love this. It doesn’t come any more highly recommended than that!
