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.

    When none of your teachers give you homework over winter break except for that Social Studies teacher who forces you to do 33 paragraphs on the Medieval Period which have to be done on jumbo-sized index cards with citations, and upon asked about why it's being assigned over break, says, "this is the real world, honey. Get over it." I genuinely pity the 7th graders who have the misfortune of having her as a teacher.

    Do you agree or disagree with the speech in the video? What are your thoughts on it? (Video on my profile​​). In summary, the video is a speech from a (fictional) television show, but it does pertain to recent events, such as the terrorist attack in Paris, and I wanted to know what you guys think about it. So...yeah. Feel free to comment below about it.
