The Accidental Time Traveller
Pub Date: May 1 2013
Saul is on his way to the corner shop on a seemingly ordinary day, when a girl appears suddenly in the middle of the road. She does not understand traffic or the things she sees in shops, and she’s wearing a long dress with ruffled sleeves. Her name is Agatha Black.
Agatha Black is from 1813, and Saul needs to find a way to get her back to her time. With help from his buddies Will and Robbie, he tries to figure out how to make time travel happen.
This face-paced, time-traveling adventure from Janis Mackay (author of the Magnus Fin books) is full of funny misunderstandings and gripping action. (Ages 8-12)
I really did like this book but somehow I don’t have super many things to say about this book. So I am just going to keep this short and sweet (and very organized)
- This book had a great story line
- The characters in the book felt and acted their age
- There was a good character arc throughout the book
- I read this book in a fairly short time because the story just sucks you right in
- Very smooth writing for an easy read
- Due to some very specific British words this book might not be suited for young US readers
- The themes in this book were very good (themes such as: family, courage, standing up to bullies, acceptance of others)
