Spellbinder Saturday- Just in Time… again

Easy as A, B, C . . . from HAJust in Time 03

Cheri_Earl_Pub_Photo__Edited_Cheri Pray Earl & Carol Lynch Williams have done it again: number three in the Just in Time series—The Wizard of Menlo Park, New Jersey. And once again delightfully illustrated by Manelle Oliphant.

CarolHere we go again—George and Gracie have received their marching orders from their lost in time parents: Menlo Park, NJ. The year? 1879, near Thomas Edison’s lab. The item that needs to be returned? A copy of Little Women, autographed by Thomas Edison.

This third entry in the series has more twists and turns then the first two combined! Two time machines and two Crowes will do that.

We make more discoveries about the history of the time machine and how Crowe got involved in the whole lost in time adventure.

On this trip, it’s Gracie’s turn again to change shape. She shows up in 1879 as a beautiful parrot. A very talkative beautiful parrot.

It’s New Year’s Eve when the kids arrive and Edison is busy having his crew string his brand new light bulbs all along Menlo Park. His plan is to light up the area and let everyone see his latest invention. Crowe worked for Edison in Menlo Park in 1879. So there’s a young Crowe with a family and sick daughter, and an older Crowe who went traveling in time.

I don’t want to give anything away… well, yes, I do, but that just wouldn’t be right. If you enjoyed George and Gracie’s first two adventures in time, you’re going to love The Wizard of Menlo Park, New Jersey.

The other thing I enjoy about these books is the section on historical facts and curiosities about the state we visit. Readers can even learn a little history.

Available now at The King’s English Bookshop and other retail outlets.

See you next time for Tips on Tuesday

    That’s the whole idea, Barbara. We don’t do reviews of books we didn’t like. We want people to read.
