Jenny Nimmo - Charlie Bone and the Time Twister

Children of the Red King

Charlie Bone and the Time Twister

Author: Jenny Nimmo

  • AGES 8 - 12 
  • Genre Fantasy
In January, 1916, Henry Yewbeam picks up a mysterious glowing glass ball that comes rolling towards him while he is playing marbles. The ball is, in truth, a time twister that his nasty cousin Zeke has made sure Henry will find.

The unsuspecting Henry gazes into the time twister and is transported far into the future where he meets Charlie Bone, his great nephew and reluctant student at Bloor's Academy where Henry's now ancient, but still nasty cousin, Ezekiel, lives. Charlie has to hide Henry from Ezekiel and from all the other members of the extended and malevolent Yewbeam and Bloor families while he figures out a way to send Henry back to 1916.
