Georgia Byng follows up the bestselling "Molly Moon's Incredible Book of Hypnotism" with "Molly Moon Stops the World," another fast-paced novel for children.

After learning how to hypnotize people all over the world, rescuing her pet pug Petunia from being dog-napped, you'd think Molly would have had enough adventures to last a lifetime. However, the evildoers of the world simply aren't done doing evil. Molly soon finds herself on a plane to Los Angeles, where she and her best friend Rocky discover that Primo Cell, a powerful, rich public figure, has been controlling celebrities - and has learned how to stop time! Of course, that is not enough for Cell. Now he wants to be President of the United States!

This novel has enough tongue-in-cheek references to the media, advertising, award shows, celebrities and politicians to keep adults interested and smirking. There is plenty of time-stopping action and spy-like work by the young protagonists to get kids oohing and aahing. If you enjoyed the first Molly Moon book, or if you like the film Clockstoppers, I am certain that you will enjoy "Molly Moon Stops the World."
