Review by: Aagami Mitra on June 28, 2012 :
This is a wonderful extension of the novel 'The Man Who Conquered Mars' by Doug Turnbull. A Wondrous Gift is a short and sweet description of the story which was left untold in the previous book. The language of the story is very smooth and easy to understand, suitable for all ages. Undoubtedly this story is another instance of the writer's wonderful talent.
