The quizmaster opened his arms and laughed, straight into Patrick’s eyes. ‘Patrick!’ he shouted. ‘Are you ready to play … Finders Keepers?’
Patrick’s eyes bulged. He licked his lips, swallowed. ‘Yes,’ he squeaked.
‘Well, come on over!’ bawled the quizmaster. 
And then everything went black.
Patrick is a Finder, someone who can cross the barrier between two worlds and retrieve lost objects. He’s been chosen in a game of chance, but he'll need more than luck to win, and time is running out.

From Publishers Weekly

30 September 1991 – Patrick's skill at a computer game earns him a place on Finders Keepers , a positively dizzy and dizzying game show transmitted from a parallel dimension, in which Finders from our dimension win valuable prizes by hunting for objects that have accidentally fallen through a barrier from the parallel universe into ours. As Patrick struggles to win the computer he desperately wants, he is forced to learn a hard truth about valuing things over people. In addition to teaching this poignant lesson, Rodda serves up at least one scream ingly funny riotous situation per chapter and keeps her adventure moving at lightning speed--making for an uncommonly satisfying read. Young's line drawings deftly keep pace with the story's changing moods. Ages 10-up.

Customer Reviews

I feel like I've been reunited with an old "pal"

Finally a book I really, really liked has come to IPad. This version of the book doesn't have any of the illustrations that were in the hardback version of the book I had, but to me that doesn't matter. I'm just so glad I've got the book forever.
