“Fast-paced time-slip adventures” – new editions of A Chase In Time!

Next month we’re excited to be publishing a new edition of A Chase In Time, with brand new cover and interior illustrations, as well as the second book in the series, A Christmas In Time! From multi-award winning Sally Nicholls, A Chase In Time is a brilliant time-slip adventure series, packed with action and fun. These new editions feature stunning interior illustrations by Rachael Dean and cover artwork by Isabelle Follath.

When Alex and Ruby fall through the mirror in their aunt’s house, they find themselves in a different historical period, each time with a different task to perform before they can return to the present. From Edwardian crime capers to Victorian Christmasses, their time-slip stories are always exciting and beautifully told.

If you haven’t picked up this fun-filled, fast-paced time-travel series yet, now is a perfect time! Here’s what reviews have been saying about the first book:

“Perfect for those who might be thrilled by the idea of two contemporary children explaining what a mobile phone is to Edwardian children in knickerbockers. Nicholls is a great storyteller… my clock’s ticking for the next in the series” – The Times, Children’s Book of the Week

“This rip-roaring time-slip novel has a fast-paced plot and entertaining characters.” – BookTrust

“The book consists of 10 short, cliffhanger chapters, which an able reader would devour in a sitting… Nicholls is a wonderful storyteller.” – The Telegraph

“The first offering in a new time-travelling series blends action and history.” – Sunday Express
