An entertaining book full of humour, science and history
Children can learn in a fun way about history with more time traveller's than you can throw a Flux-capacitor at!
The story starts in a gentlemen’s club in London in 2061 and follows the main character, Benjamin Digby Esq.
He relives his days as a ‘quantum’ scientist at the Crick institute in London in 2021 by telling his circle of friends his extraordinary tale about travelling in time. He travels back to the Crystal Palace Exhibition in 1851 Victorian England where he meets Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
Benjamin’s aim is to pick up inventors and scientists for his Time Travellers’ Club: Einstein, Da Vinci, Brunel. He gets more than he bargained for when he gets chased through time and space and encounters Leonardo Da Vinci and Niccolo Machiavelli. There are more twists and turns in this than time itself – expect the unexpected!
The Time Travellers Club is Mark’s fourth Matador children’s book, and will appeal to science fiction lovers and fans of his former books.
Praise for Mark’s former book, The (Phantasmagorical) Astrarium Compendium:
“The story is obviously written by an author who loves writing and who enjoys bringing the imaginary world of historical fantasy to life.” – Historical Novel Society
