Rachel Hamilton’s top 10 explosions in children’s books

Rachel Hamilton’s top 10 explosions in children’s books
Writing in The Guardian, author, Rachel Hamilton lists her top ten explosions in children's books (why didn't somebody do this before?!)

At number four:

4. Artemis Fowl and the Eternity Code by Eoin Colfer

Eoin Colfer’s sonic grenade generates a different kind of explosion: no smoke, no flames, just a solid wall of sound that blows out every window and eardrum within a 10 metre radius of the restaurant where it explodes. To the glee of giggly readers, it shatters the aquarium, “leaving the flagstones slick with water, Perspex and surprised lobsters” and leaving customers “submerged in éclairs, cheesecake and pavlova.”

Check out the others in the list, it's a blast!!!
