The Reluctant Time Traveller

Janis Mackay


Range: Kelpies eBook 240 pages ISBN: 9781782501459 Publication date: 25th September 2014
When Agnes suggested time travel, I should've said 'N. O! No.'

This was her plan: travel to 1914, find out about the First World War and save our den.

I should have said, 'time travel is a totally dangerous, mad idea.' I mean, what if we'd gotten it wrong and ended up in some gladiator ring, or trampled by dinosaurs!?

Now I'm stuck somewhere dark and creepy. No sign of Agnes. Where am I? More to the point, when am I?

The time-twisting sequel to The Accidental Time Traveller.


'Janis again weaves a history lesson unobtrusively into an exciting story and it's a topical theme as the children travel back to 1914 and the outbreak of the first world war... Read both books, because they're worth it!'
-- Lothian Life

'So real that kid readers will be wishing they could make the journey right alongside them.'
-- Foreward Reviews
