The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is the second in the series of 8 in all featuring Charlie Bone, a boy endowed with magical powers. The plots twist and turn unpredictably and the stories are truly magical, fun and very enjoyable. Charlie must continue to use his powers against the evil Bloors - werewolves, hypnotists, mind-readers, sorcerers and witches - to try and find his father. He has many loyal friends to help him do so but on his quest evil threatens him at every turn but Charlie’s indomitable spirit keeps him going. Will good triumph over evil and right over wrong in the end?
Charlie Bone and the Time Twister (Book 2) by Jenny Nimmo
On the coldest night in memory, Henry Yewbeam's cousin Zeke tricks him into using the Time Twister, a beautiful marble full of shining colours that draws him into the future. In January 2002, Charlie meets Henry reappearing at Bloor's in the twenty-first century, and realises Henry's cousin is none other than old Ezekiel Bloor. Charlie and Fidelio are joined by Cook and the Flames in their attempts to hide Henry from Ezekiel's spies. But Manfred captures Henry, and although Mrs Bloor tried to save him, she vanishes with the Time Twister. With the help of the endowed, Charlie must enter the portrait of Skarpo the sorceror and retrieve the wand of a Welsh wizard.
'The story is lively, accomplished and dramatic and the writing has an engaging directness and warmth'
