Today on Celebrating Indie Publishing I am thrilled to share a mini review of a fun read that my little reader and I shared as a bedtime story this week and really enjoyed.

  • Title: Timothy Mean and the Time Machine
  • Author:William A.E. Ford
  • Publisher: Independently published
  • Publication Date: 17th January 2019

Copy kindly provided by the author for review purposes.

Description:

WINNER OF READERS FAVORITE SCI-FI FANTASY CHILDREN’S BOOK AWARD 2019
With Timothy Mean’s amazing imagination and time machine, anything and anywhere is possible!
Join Timothy on a magical rhyming adventure as he skips through time and pranks with pirates, gets daring with dragons, and even teases a T-Rex!
“It’s Monday. Hip hip hooray! Where shall we travel in time today?”
With Timothy Mean, every day is a rhyme in time!

My Thoughts:

We love a book that has a fun character, adventure and lots of moments for laughter, and so when we stumbled upon Timothy Mean and the Time Machine we couldn’t wait to read it! We enjoyed it so much we bought a paperback copy to add to our book shelf.

Fun illustrations help to bring the story of a bored Timothy alive as he adventures through time to visit different times and landscapes, causing mischief wherever he ends up. The pranks that Timothy plays in each new time gave us a great point for discussion as my daughter told me why she thought that some of his pranks were mean and how they might have affected people.
As well as speaking about the pranks, we also spoke about ideas the book brought on, where would we like to go if we had a time machine, what would we see? What is the moon made of? Where did the dinosaurs go? Were there dinosaurs around when daddy was a boy (he father was not so pleased about this idea), the list goes on and we’ve plans to use a box to make a time machine of our own for adventures.
