The Reluctant Time Traveller

We rated this book:


After Saul’s last adventure hurtling through time, he isn’t eager to try again. Agnes, Saul’s best friend, is excited and raring to go. Saul is finally convinced when he learns that his “den,” an old ownerless property, will be destroyed if the deeds to the land aren’t found. Even more exciting, though, is the fact that the land belongs to Agnes’s father. Unfortunately, without the deeds, the property will be used to make expensive houses. Agnes and Saul travel back through time one hundred years to 1914, a few days before the beginning of World War I. Suddenly, Saul and Agnes are thrown into a completely different culture. Can they survive long enough to get back?

This is a middling story about middling characters who do middling things. I recommend this book for children who are just finished with chapter books. That is all this really is: a step up from chapter books. It was interesting to see the different slang used in Scotland, though. I was rather confused at the start, as I had not read the previous book, but the original was mostly unimportant as the story progressed.
