Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tim, Defender of the Earth, is a rock-em, sock-em thriller filled with smoke, spectacle, and big-time adventure. Big Ben will fall Westminster Abbey will crumble London will never be the same.

TIM, aka Tyrannosaurus: Improved Model, is the product of a top-secret government military experiment, and he couldn't be more lovable. Sure, he's an enormous monster to most, but at heart he's just a big, awkward, thirteen-year-old who realizes he could be all that stands between the earth and total destruction. (Take that, Godzilla.)

Now TIM must form an unlikely alliance with fifteen-year-olds Chris and Anna in order to save humanity from the greatest threat it has ever known: Anna's father, the brilliant and demented Professor Mallahide, and his growing tide of vicious, all-consuming nanobots. Will TIM prevail and save the British Isles and the world from evil? We'll all have to hold hands, read, and believe in TIM, Defender of the Earth.
