This is the best! Thomas really did put all his effort into writing this book and should get a reward

*****

I read this last in high school over 30 years ago. It made such an impression on me that I still recall the well written tales, the detail of the narrative.

That may have been the enthusiasm of a young person first encountering mythology. I was already an imaginative youngster when I first read this. It captivated me so much I flew through the nearly 1000 pages. These are stories of a magical alternate reality. This is a classic for all ages. Highly recommended, especially at this price.

Author of the Day

Kim Velk
Kim Velk loves bicycles, typewriters and 1920s music. So she decided to write a time travel adventure that takes readers on a wild ride to the 1920s with a fifteen year old boy. It took her six years to complete her debut work, but it was worth it. As our author of the day, Velk chats about her Up, Back and Away, why she wrote it and reveals exactly how much research went into it.
