    How many philosophy novels do you come across Not many at all, which is a shame because I love philosophy This is why I bought this book for my niece aged 10 and we ended up reading the novel together We sailed through the book which was a complete page turner.Charlie is a normal everyday kid, who is mourning the loss of his grandfather A simple task of returning a scroll to a museum turns into something quite different when Charlie is transported to Plato s Academy in Ancient Greece He meets with a dying Plato but discovers he needs a key to get home and so the quest begins Charlie and a warrior girl, Adonia, travel to Delphi to meet with the Oracle who knows where the key is but insists they complete three tests based on Plato s ideas to prove their identity Charlie and Adonia land in Plato s metaphor of the cave, and have to assemble the ideal city and then have a fight with his Elements to complete the quest I don t want to spoil the end but it was riveting reading I think my niece wants to be Adonia and I was totally transported A great story for anyone interested in Plato or philosophy, I hope this author releases another one soon Highly recommended.

    My daughter devoured this book in a single sitting, sparking my own interest With a unique blend of fantasy, adventure and philosophy Plato s Academy is both thought provoking and entertaining, with some touching pathos added for a delightful mix A real treat for young readers and I m sure parents too will enjoy Ali Gray s very original first book.

    An easy read with some surprises in the plot For us perhaps the most refreshing thing was the introduction to Plato and philosophy for kids This is something new for kid s literature in Australia Consequently, it provides a creative entry for such a fundamental part of literature that we do not see in school curriculum.Exceeded our expectations.

    An innovative and effective approach to introducing Plato and Philosophy to pre early teens It does not pontificate, but instead encourages readers to relate to Charlie s and Adonia s adventures and learn key concepts along the way For the not so young, it offers a lighter, less abstract refresher on Philosophy.

    Great read for 10 year olds in my grade I enjoyed reading it and they enjoyed listening to it.Conversations after reading book were very science based which has been our inquiry unit this semester.

    A fabulous book on philosophy for pre teen aged children Ali has a great skill for explaining complex ideas in a way that is understandable by children and adults My son loved it his only complaint was that it wasn t long enough Looking forward to the next book.

    Using Charlie as a character that children can relate to, this opens them to thinking than skin deep My 9yo enjoyed the interesting characters, challenges Charlie faced and how puzzles were solved Looking forward to the next book
