Brother Mouky and the Falling Sun

Barbara Wersba, Author, Karen Whiteside, Author HarperCollins Publishers $13.95 (30p) ISBN 978-0-06-026408-6
Lonely Archie finds solace in the classic movies of the '30s and '40s, until a chance encounter in the airport sends him on an adventure as wild as a Spielbergian nightmare. Traveling under an assumed name, Archie arrives in Zurich and becomes the target of a gang of thugs. With the able assistance of his new friend Polo--the street-wise daughter of a bestselling author--Archie succeeds in outwitting his pursuers. Readers will enjoy the exhilarating pace and abundant action of this tongue-in-cheek thriller. Wersba's ( Fat: A Love Story ; The Farewell Kid ; Wonderful Me ) quirky characters are thoughtfully delineated; their authenticity makes this madcap tale seem nearly plausible. Ages 12-up. (Oct.)
