I have received a free e-copy of the book “In the Land of Broken Time” by married couple Maria Evan & Max Evan for son1 to review. To find out more about the authors, you may see their Facebook page here.
Here is the book blurb.
Join the time travel adventures of Christopher, Sophia and their retriever, Duke, as they find themselves in a hot air balloon that flies them to The Fairyland. They meet good and evil scientists, as well as a dubious gnome. Through this book you will learn about measuring time, creatures that never get old and about friendship. You will also learn how to make your own clocks!
This is a story about time travel for children from 8 to 12 years old, but their parents might find it interesting as well.
This is what son1 had to say.
I’m reviewing a book called ‘In the land of broken time’. I thought it good and rated it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
It’s about a boy called Christopher who sneaks out of his house and into the circus. When someone discovers he doesn’t have a ticket, a girl called Sophie, who doesn’t have a ticket either, distracts everyone else to stop him getting into trouble. They meet a dog called Duke and they ride a hot air balloon 🎈 and land in the land of broken time…
But if you want to know more you’ll have to read the book 📚
And I’ll add a few more comments myself. This is a short book at only 48 pages, but it packs in a lot of detail and really brings the adventure to life. Maria is also the illustrator. It focuses on different types of clocks like sun dials and hourglasses and also includes time travel. It features a pair of scientist brothers – one good and one bad. What will happen and will the children get safely home again?
This is the first children’s book by married couple Maria & Max Evan, originally written in Russian for their own son, but expertly translated. And the paperback version has been beautifully illustrated by Maria too.
In The Land of Broken Time is available on Amazon, currently priced at £4.77 in paperback and is also available in kindle format. Highly recommended by both son1 and me.
