ReadingZone 5-star review

The fact that they are twins and always end up in a slightly different area allows for a lot more historical knowledge to come across … This is a good book for Years 3 and 4 upwards as it is easily accessible in terms of short chapters, lots of action and illustrations but is full of learning about history

Primary School teacher’s five star review, NetGalley

I loved reading this and learnt a lot. The author has added extra information and lots of facts at the end which made this a brilliant way to find out all about the time. I really like the characters in it and the time machine is cool
