My Review

The pictures accompanying this book are spectacular and add to the extra-dimensional time travel tone of the book.

The story revovles around a time machine, one pet monkey and one adventurous boy. But he isn’t really looking for an adventour just his tea!

Both the illustrator and author have manages to create a co-dependant world of escape, fun and time travel.
