Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The evocative pictures and gentle writing style of one of greatest picture book creators introduces young readers to the exciting adventures of Time.

A very moving story with some desperately exciting illustrations.

Ardizzone writes in a clear, perfect prose and his illustrations, black-and-white and colour, dazzle.

These books have really come back to life for children today. Rightly so.

The timeless story will delight yet another generation of children.
