Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
A lavish and engrossing presentation, this blends an oversized, largeprint format with a peppering of color illustrations throughout and will appeal to both young adult and adult readers with its story of Jubee, a boy who discovers a way to go back in time and make a billion dollars in the stock market crash. His social consciousness kicks in and he decides to modify events for a better future in the process, but his experiences in the 1920s era introduce the challenges of living in the era and when his time machine is trashed, he faces the possibility of being stranded in the past. The lively, revealing tone of the story line enhanced by Toby Bluth's color drawings makes this an unusual and recommended title for all ages.
David H. Bayler
Subtle and delightful. . . a modern Huckleberry Finn. . . The Illustrations are fantastic. The whole book is beautiful.

Kalamazoo Gazette

Only now and then is a book-publishing project lovingly produced and beatifully realized without compromise. . . Requires an adult mentality to be appreciated.

Tom Easton
Production values are as high as they come, and the content will not disappoint.
Analog Science Fiction and Fact
Writers Digest
This book is charming-both the story and the illustrations. The plot is tightly-wove, and the characters are adorable.
