Time Travelling with a Hamster

Publisher: Harper Collins Children’s Books

Review

When 12-year-old Al Chaudry learns there is a time machine, made by his father, sitting in the garage of his old house, he has to go and get it - doesn't he? Then he can travel back in time and save his father's life.

With his pet hamster Alan Shearer for company, Al is determined to follow his dad's instructions. But time travel can be tricky and there are strict rules. Can Al race against time to change the past and the future, while keeping hold of Alan Shearer and not arousing suspicion?

The reader is rooting for Al all the way, as he bravely confronts every possible obstacle in the hope of having his dad back. Both hilarious and heart-warming, this is a brilliant and clever adventure story.
