I would highly recommend this book to ANYONE!

Wonderscape was one of the best books I have ever read! Full of adventure, high stakes and wit. Imagination surrounds you. This book is incredibly gripping. I highly recommend Wonderscape and hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

wonderscape is very interesting becuase it features three teenagers (Ren,Cecily and Arthur) who live in 2020 and end up travelling forwards in time to 2473. They had travelled through a swirling portal of mist into a game called Wonderscape and they need to return to 2020 before turning to protoplasm (Ren calls it snot(eww)). I would recommend this book for thrill seekers aged around 7 and up(read Legendarium after this).

It always keeps the reader on the edge but is is very entertaining. My favourite character is Cecily she is just so bold and doesn't care about what other people think about her. I would really recommend this book.

This book was so engaging, it was about a group of children who came across a portal to a video game world called Wonderscape, they had to use the heroes of each realm to complete the challenge to get back home to their families. I loved the character Arthur, he is just like me, loves science, nervous around new people and curious, also really good at problem solving. I would really recommend this book to someone else because it is engaging, fun and full of curiosity. I loved it so much and I could read it again and again and again.

This book is called Wonderscape. It is a sci fi book all about a video game that takes history to another level. The story is about three kids called Arthur, Ren and Cecily who get trapped in a video game that takes them to different places. Along the way they meet different famous people from history who help them collect dirt, Wonderskill and Realm keys to try and help them get home before time runs out. I really liked this book because I am a fan of computer games and history and I liked learning about different heroes. My favourite character was Cloud, a dog that the kids meet during the adventure. Cloud reminded me of my dog. I really liked Realm 152 – The Realm of the Wizard because it was a puzzle-solving part where they had to solve a riddle. I got it wrong! The book was exciting, because I always wanted to know what would happen next. I would recommend this book to people who like the Horrible Histories series, videogames and Pokemon.

AMAZING!!! Best book on the future of video games EVER written! If you play ANY video game then you will love this epic read!

It is like jamanji

Dona Wanda Pawprint 28.08.2020


I thought it was great story with a gripping story line all through the story i was wondering if they back home. I liked the twist when they discovered the mimic. For me personally i didn't have a favourite character because they were all great and i liked them all. I recommend this book to 10 to 12 because it is not an easy read but also not a hard one I often read harder books than this but it was nice to have a change.

It was a fiction. It had hero’s of humanity’s history. My favourite character was Cecily he Ouse she is brave and smart I also liked Tomoe Gozen because she is warrior but also she will help anyone that needs help and that she doesn’t boast about all of her amazing achievements. I would definitely recommend Wonderscape to a reader that likes fun mystery space and time.

I love the idea of an in reality game and I would love to see if it could be made in real life.
