Fun story raising good questions

Full of gadgets, surprising plot twists, and terrible puns, this was a book we enjoyed with all our children. At the surface it is a great adventure story, but it also raises thoughtful questions about the relationship between faith and science, that which we can explain and that which we can't. Recommended.
