Remote Man was one of the best books I've ever read. It is about a boy named Ned that loves to watch T.V. he is 13 years old and lives in Australia. One day his mother called and told him to prepare dinner and he just ignored her and kept watching T.V.

When she got home she threw a frying pan at the T.V. and went insane. While she was insane Ned went to live with his cousin Kate.

Ned was in a shop and a man came in and was looking for art. The man bought an x-ray of a rare snake. Ned told him that there was one around and the next time Ned and Kate went to see the snake it was gone.
When Ned got home his mom was invited to stay with the mother of someone she worked with in America. While they were there they solved the mystery of why the snake was missing.

I was lucky enough to meet Elizabeth Honey several years ago. She and her son were in our town for several months while she 'researched' New England lifestyles and American English for this book. It's wonderfully exciting to read about the Concord prison, the woods, Rt. 495, etc. I loved the way in which she used chat rooms as a plot device. And her characters are very believable. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. It's fast-paced, humorous, and has a great message for animal-lovers.
