DAR TELLUM: Stranger From a Distant Planet by James R. Berry

DAR TELLUM: Stranger From a Distant Planet

Email this review


Daydreaming in Mrs. Todd's spelling class puts Ralph in touch with Dar Tellum, a telepathic resident of the planet Sidra. Dar Tellum teaches Ralph a little elementary telekinesis and, more important, slips him the solution to the ecological crisis that has been worrying Ralph's scientist father. A considerable amount of ingenuity has gone into preserving both, a sense of Dar Tellum's exoticism and a modicum of suspense, while scaling the narrative to large print immediacy. The conclusion promises more visits from Dar Tellum so now is the time to see whether he can make contact with other wool-gatherers.
