A semi-plausible story, set in the not-too-distant future, when vertical take-off planes and atomic-powered ships are the norm, and the computer has usurped man's overall command. True, man still has a role to play --- this adventure proves the point; but the writer has taken today's thoughts and transformed them into tomorrow's reality. The whole concept of moving icebergs to the USA to provide fresh water is appealing, and children will probably sympathise with the hero, even if they find what he is witnessing somewhat improbable. A good read for middle-juniors and worth stocking on library shelves.
