Synopsis

A Slip in Time by Maggie Pearson

A Slip in Time is the story of an ordinary boy who gets mixed up in some extraordinary events. When Jack sets out to the shops, he finds that he has somehow stepped into the streets of Victorian London. With every person that he meets, the story gets stranger. Flashbacks are dramatic stories set during key moments in history. Strong characters and thrilling plots bring the past to life.

Reviews

'There is a real art in writing a complete, rounded and credible story within 96 pages and this is a splendid example...it will be enjoyed by younger readers and would appeal to older boys who are less confident. It also reads aloud well'

About the Author

Whilst her three children were growing up, Maggie Pearson held a variety of jobs - including bar maid, librarian and freelance journalist - but she now pursues a career as a highly-successful children's writer. Her first novel, Owl-Light, was shortlisted for the WH Smith Mind-boggling Book Award. She lives mostly in a sixteenth-century cottage in Suffolk with her husband, two cats and a goat, and sometimes in the French Pyrenees. She spent years compiling this extraordinary collection of folk tales as a labour of love. She has also written A Slip in Time and The Eyes of Doctor Dee for the Victorian Flashbacks series, Is There Anybody There? for the Wired Up series, and the folk tale collection The House of the Cats.
