Self-published by the author, 2019.
This is an exciting time travel adventure story. A young boy called Timothy is feeling bored so he makes a time machine out of cardboard boxes. Every day for the next week he goes on a new adventure through time. He journeys to the age of the dinosaurs, boards a Viking ship and even interrupts the first moon landing. He visits his mom and dad as school children and takes a trip to the future.
The book is written in rhyme. It has a lovely bouncy rhythm and is fun to read aloud.
Children will be amused by all the mischief that Timothy gets up to on his travels: from pulling down Neil Armstrong’s trousers to forcing pirates to walk the plank.
The action-packed illustrations are full-colour double page spreads and they’ll give you plenty to look at and enjoy. I particularly liked the inclusion of the toy action figures in the final illustration and the end papers; they reference the different story characters and reveal the inspiration for Timothy’s imaginative play.
Suitable for children aged 4+
Thank you to William A. E. Ford for sending me this book to review.
