A Chase in Time reviewed in The Pool

Earlier this month we published A Chase in Time: the first book in a brilliant new time-slip adventure series for 7+ readers, written by Sally Nicholls, winner of the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize, and with artwork by Brett Helquist, illustrator of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.

A Chase in Time has had a wonderful reception so far – and we’re delighted to see that the book has been reviewed in The Pool!

Elaine Robb (and her daughter, Miranda) writes:

“Miranda is a total history buff and has recently discovered the joys of the Famous Five (much to my personal delight), so we thought this time-travelling adventure would be right up her street. Every summer, Alex and his sister, Ruby, stay with their aunt in a crumbling old English country house. One day, they’re pulled back in time through the gilt-edged mirror to 1912 where they meet Henry and Dora, who need their help to find a priceless golden cup. Miranda loved all the period detail and comparisons with present-day clothes and customs, and was thrilled that Ruby feels she has a lot to teach her ancestors about feminism! Great for the seven-to-nine reading age.”

Here’s a look inside the book:
