Hectic Electric: How to Hypnotise a Droid - Review

Successful entrepreneur Josh Lefers surprised everyone when he launched his first book for children: How to Hypnotise a Droid last month. And we're pleased to say it's hectic, epic and electric and we love it!

Little Miss was pretty excited when we received the book for review as she started borrowing chapter books at the library recently thanks to the Billie B Brown chapter books series by Sally Rippin. Sally Rippin who funnily enough helped launch How to Hypnotise a Droid at the Gallery in the CBD!

This hilarious book is the first in the Hectic Electric series written by Joshie Lefers, illustrated by Wayne Bryant and published by Hardie Grant Egmont.

Little Miss can't read as yet as she just turned 5 so we read the story to her at bedtime over several nights. She loved the funny story and drawings throughout. She may have not grasped some of the witty and quirky comments in the book but still loved it to the point that I now have to read it to her again very soon and she won't let her cousin borrow it!

How to Hypnotise a Droid is cleverly written with wit and humour, where every sentence and illustration has been well thought out. We love the way the illustrations and the fun text makes it a fun book to read.

We won't give the story away as kids aged 6+ will enjoy this fun, high tech and hilarious adventure of one very clever and cheeky Joshie Hectic. Joshie loves giving everyone a nickname and is a bit of a conspiracy theorist in our mind but we love him anyway!

He also loves coming up with missions to scare off babysitters that his mad scientist mum keeps organising. But Joshie may have met his match when a new kind of babysitter - a droid, comes along!

We loved How to Hypnotise a Droid, it made us laugh, giggle as we kept wondering what was going to happen next in this fun adventure! We can't wait to read the next instalment of Hectic Electric!
