A laugh-a-minute, worst-day-ever adventure full of hilariously witty illustrations and famous faces from history!

Nine-year-old Billy is digging for buried treasure when … he finds a wormhole in the garden! And to make matters worse, all sorts of people from the past begin to clamber through it.

No pressure then…
