Enthoven, Sam. Tim, Defender of the Earth.
He's green, he's 100 meters tall, and he's humanity's best hope when a swarm of nanobots created by a mad scientist threatens to take over the world. Tim (which stands for Tyrannosaurus: Improved Model) is a secret military project created by the British. Chris, a 14-year-old on a field trip to the British Museum, acquires an ancient bracelet that links him to Tim and helps channel Tim's power. Chris must also come to the aid of his classmate Anna, the daughter of the mad scientist, in a battle at St. Paul's Cathedral between Tim and the swarm, before the world unleashes a nuclear strike at Britain in an attempt to stop the swarm from spreading.
Enthoven previously demonstrated his wild imagination in The Black Tattoo. Here there's less horror and more humor, along with lots of action, as each of the protagonists discovers his or her vital role in saving the world. Fun escapist fantasy. Paula Rohrlick, KLIATT
