    1. Read this a few years ago, Matt is a colleague so was interested to see what he'd written. I enjoyed it and thought it very well written and engaging. It is a children's book but don't dismiss it for that reason. The follow up, The Medici Curse, is equally excellent.

    2. Time Switch is a kids’ book that involves two perspectives: one in 1879 and the other in 2000. In 1879, Edward and his twelve-year-old brother Will are experimenting with a machine that Edward invented (*spoiler alert, I guess, although you can probably guess from the title: it’s a time machine).

    3. I read this book long ago when Libraries were still in fashion. The story is really worth telling and Matt Chamings has done a wonderful job constructing the characters, but Time Switch falls short to a dissatisfying end.
