Giveaway: Timekeepers by Simon Lee

By Bianca Schulze, The Children’s Book Review
Published: March 9, 2011

Who doesn’t like a good time traveling story? We have three signed copies of Simon Lee’s Timekeepers to giveaway. Giveaway begins March 9, 2011, at 12:01 A.M. PST and ends April 6, 2011, at 11:59 P.M. PST.

Reading Level: Ages 10-14

Paperback: 213 pages

Book overview: Timekeepers is the first book in the Tempus Viator trilogy (Latin for time traveller), a series of books aimed at ten to fourteen-year-old kids. The three books follow the adventures of Thomas and Emily Fletcher, a young brother and sister, as they try to find out who wants to hurt them and why.

About the Author: I left the UK a number of years ago and now live in the south of Spain. This means that I don’t see my niece and nephew, the real Thomas and Emily, as much as I want so I decided to write them a story. I want the books to give them a passion for reading which is why I have made them the main characters, and included a lot of things from our real lives. I also want to try and give them an interest in history which is why a lot of the historical references in the books are as accurate as I can make them. The physics that I have used to explain time travel, however, is just nonsense.
