The Lovereading4Kids comment
Book of the Year in the 2010 Blue Peter Award and winner of the 'Book I Couldn't Put Down' category Award. A page-turning mystery-adventure with a pleasingly old-fashioned feel as two children, frozen by cryonic suspension by their father in 1956, are miraculously brought back to life by two other children in 2009. There are loads of clues to follow and several mysteries to be solved as well as a lot of enjoyable confusion and surprise as children from ‘then’ see childhood ‘now’. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Frozen in Time by Ali Sparkes
1956 Freddy and Polly are used to helping their father with his experiments. So they don't mind being put into cryonic suspension - having their hearts frozen until their father wakes them up again. They know it will only be for an hour or two, so there's nothing to worry about ...Present Day Ben and Rachel have resigned themselves to a long, boring summer. Then they find a hidden underground vault in the garden containing two frozen figures, a boy and a girl. And when Rachel accidentally presses a button, something unbelievable happens ...Can Polly and Freddy adapt to the twenty-first century? Will their bodies survive having been in suspension for so long? And most important of all, what happened to their father - and why did he leave them frozen in time?
A must-read ... I know now that they mean by a plot that is toe-curlingly good. John Lloyd, BookBag
'it will be a runaway success and readers will be crying out for the next books in the series..I admit, I'm hooked.' School Librarian
