Sons of Scarlatti - Infinity Drake
Author: John McNally
Infinity Drake, aka Finn, is staying with his mad scientist uncle when disaster strikes. A villain has released a bio-weapon, the 'Scarlatti'. The Scarlatti is very good at killing wasps, and the world is in danger. Finn's uncle can try to save the world by shrinking a military team to track down and kill the Scarlatti. But Finn somehow gets shrunk as well and joins the team in the race to avert disaster.
This is a real page turner with lots of twists and turns! An action-packed sci-fi adventure with killer wasps, and the first of a three book series.
John McNally is a screenwriter who has worked with Aardman, Sony and the BBC. Infinity Drake is his first novel and was written for his children (who, of course, knew nothing about it) as well as to escape development hell. Once it sold to a publisher he finally showed it to his kids. Luckily, they liked it, and now millions of others will too…

It starts of with a bit of comedy which cheered me up. You never can put it down, it should have the title NON GRAVITY! There is a really mad villain that released a bio hazard. Now finn has a truck load of problems, one of them being he's 9 mm tall. It's really good because it's intense and has amazing cliff hangers I would recommend this to 11 year olds and over because the start is a bit confusing

I liked the book because it was adventurous and exciting, I partly loved it because it was humorous. It was great and intriguing. It's obvious that the boy gets shrunk, that is what I think is the best part. I also like how Al (his uncle) is always late, it's funny! I found it great but it was quite difficult to understand as it randomly changes conversations time to time. It was still great though. I found it was a great book but is probably aimed for older children. I'd recommend it to a...

Book review Infinity Drake: sons of Scarlatti, a proper page turner. The book Infinity Drake sons of Scarlatti is about evil people using a biological weapon against the world’s governments. This biological weapon is called the Scarlatti and is a horrifying wasp with a toxic sting that can kill just about anything! It starts off with Al and his nephew Infinity setting of on a journey to a mountain in France, going to find bugs for Infinity’s (Finn for short) collection of mini ...

I didn't like it because it took a long time to get into the best parts of the book which was boring. Sorry but I am going to rate this book a 1 star because of the fact above. I would recommend this book to teens because it has really hard words that you had probably not known of. Thank you for reading My Book Review :)

I think the book is really great and is intriguing and also quite fascinating. In whole the book is very interesting.
George, City Of London Academy, 05 January 2016
I think this book is good because it is a bit confusing especially with the words because they are difficult. It is not one of my favourite books that I've read.
Jack, City Of London Academy Islington, 05 January 2016
I think this book is good in some conditions and fine in some conditions because it has a lot of action in every chapter I've read , but it has difficult words that people didn't know about and young children might not understand the hole book. But overall , this book is great .
Jason, City Of London Academy Islington, 05 January 2016
A really good book. Very exciting and loads of action. A bit complicated but I understood enough to enjoy an amazing story.

I chose this bookbuzz book because I love adventure stories and Infinity Drake is not like any other adventure books it contains so much action! Giant killer insects and living in the wild are just the start... This book is going to have me on the edge of my seat!
Oliver, Wilmington Grammar School For Boys, 02 November 2015
I like this book because it has a lot of action and adventure. I am going to give it a 3 star because i do like it but it is to complex. When i read the blurb it threw me questions of wonder such as how are they going to kill the flies.It also built tension and suspense. I also liked the slogan 'pick on someone your on size'.
Armaan, Dixons Allerton Academy, 02 November 2015
I chose Infinity Drake because it looks action packed and I like the sound of the blurb. With killer wasps and people trying to save the world it, I think it is perfect book for me. I can't wait the read the book
James, Wilmington Grammar school for boys, 21 October 2015
I chose this book buzz book because I had one look at this cover and the picture came to life throwing questions of wonder, feeling and imagination into me. The blurb grabbed my imagination and my longing to read it pulled me into its depths. I was and still am ready for an adventure.
joshua, Wilmington grammar schoo, 20 October 2015
awesome book its just so cool
mika, george dixon academy, 14 October 2015
I like the look of this book because it is action and adventure wich is my favourite type of book. It is about a boy who is 9mm tall and the normal size people need to do a mission but it is underground so they send the boy finn to do it.
Riley, KHCA, 13 October 2015
Its an exciting book, with lots of action it seems and un-expecting turn of events. But its not a kind of book I would read, because even though its filled with action and surprises I don't like the book. That's why I gave it two stars
Elham, George Dixon Academy, 05 October 2015
Its very good
David, Jo Richardson, 01 October 2015
It sounds like a great book and it looks cool. I can't wait to read this book.

its so good
amir, the kings academy, 20 September 2015
Action-packed all the way, killer wasps, a crazy uncle and lots of science thrown in. Meet (mini) Finn - or Infinity - as he's called, and join him in this great Sci-Fi adventure. I was totally gripped - or should that be stung?
