The Book of Time by Guillaume Prevost dives into historical times, from Ancient Egypt to World War I. Watch Sam fight for his life as he searches the dangerous past for his missing father.

The Disappearing Act

Ever since Sam’s mother died, his father has been a little loopy. He disappears for days at a time, forcing Sam to live with his grandparents. Now Sam’s father has disappeared again. Three days…five days…ten days have gone by, and he still hasn’t returned. Worried, Sam searches his house for a note or any sign of his father’s travel plans. But instead he finds something eerie and unusual.

The Strange Objects

In the basement, behind a makeshift wall, Sam finds a dimly lit room. Inside he discovers three strange artifacts: a large red book about Dracula, a coin with a hole in the middle and an object that reminds Sam of a miniature totem pole or voodoo statue. Curious, Sam fits the coin into the statue…and his life is changed forever.


Back in Time

Suddenly Sam is thrown back in time. The Vikings are attacking a village of monks. In order to escape, Sam must find another coin with a missing center and fit it into the statue. But Sam’s adventure doesn’t end there. He’s thrown from the age of the Vikings to World War I, and then to Ancient Egypt before returning home. Sam realizes that his father must be trapped somewhere in time. But how can he save him if he doesn’t know where to look or how to get there? Then Sam spots the red book about Dracula. Could his father be a prisoner of Dracula?


The Bottom Line

Adventurous, climactic and historically accurate, The Book of Time is perfect for a school book report. Impress your teacher with your knowledge of ancient times while enjoying a truly exciting story. It’s the perfect book for boys, history buffs and those interested in judo or other martial arts. Also, don’t miss The Seven Coins, the sequel to The Book of Time.

    Where Would U Go Back In Time?

    • I'd go to the swingin' '60s baby!
    • I'd go disco in the '70s.
    • The '80s looked pretty fun.
    • I'd go back to when there were pirates, mate!

    Anxiety isn't something that can be described as a feeling or emotion. It is instead almost like a rain cloud. I use this rain cloud analogy because it doesn't fit the base of a shadow nor demon. Have you ever seen one of those rain clouds on cartoons that follow people around where ever they go? Anxiety is similar to that however unlike a shadow you will always know it's there and whenever you approach a social situation the rain gets heavier, and as you become weaker from surviving the heavy rain sometimes you take the easy way out and avoid the social situation altogether. You eventually feel helpless to the rain and give in, you avoid any social situation possible and begin to lose all skill in that area. Little did you know doing this to avoid heavy rain will instead set you up for a storm. A storm of awkwardness and low self esteem and that's when the dark thoughts seep in.  However there will be those people who will protect you for the storm, or those people who would be there if you needed them to and if you put in just a little effort you can evade the storm and though that little rain cloud may always linger around you, you will never forget about your experience in the storm, from that you grow as a person and eventually you will accept and laugh about this little rain cloud. You will accept yourself for who you are and push yourself beyond your boundaries to become the person you wanted to be. This person may not be perfect but if you are happy with the person you are then none of that should matter. None of the awkwardness, none of the mistakes and none of the imperfections should matter.  The only thing that does matter is the fact that you are the person you want to be. The person you are happy being. (Just my experience with anxiety /: ) I had a lot to get off of my chest)

    We all know that the symbols and colors of God are only white. And devils color is red and black which stand for danger. I came to ask why did Satan choose two colors and mixed it together to make it scared and danger? And my another question is why did we always obey devils work and ignored Gods work? On my own mind i can say that is girls is the most human that do devils work, 95% and they do God work 5% But we guys can only do 40% of devils work and 50% for God.      Please if its false or true  story you can drop your comment below ........................................................... ...................................................................... ....................................................................................   What i understand in all these is   that  Satan is greedy and he came to destroy the world for those who give them chance like Nigeria have already give them chance, so is there for you  to choose one of this two masters God or Satan, because i know you cannot serve two masters at the same time;     Please give your vote with choice. .......................................................... ...................................................... .................................................. ............................................................... ...................................................................                             Thanks for your cooperation and thanks for your understanding                                                                       Sign by Desmond
