Book Review - The Time Bike by Jane Langston

Friday, July 16, 2010

I picked up The Time Bike by Jane Langton at Beth's Books in New Orleans. I was on a mission for books to fulfill my current reading challenges though this is the only book I found it was a good find. The Time Bike is the sixth novel for children in the Hall Family Chronicles. I haven't read any of the others but having previously worked in a book store I had heard of them when I found The Time Bike on the shelf and knew it was a time travel series and so perfect for the Time Travel Reading Challenge.
In this novel we follow Eddy and his sister Eleanor as they travel through time on a magical bike that was sent to Eddy mysteriously when his regular bike was stolen. This book would make a great introduction to the world of time travel and fantasy. Although I could tell there were some things that had happened to Eddy and Eleanor that I wasn't privy to having not read the other books in the series I was easily able to follow the story.
Now I am on a new mission to find the other titles in the series, more Eddy and Eleanor adventures await.

This takes care of another requirement for the Time Travel Reading Challenge hosted by At Home With Books

1 your two cents:

I haven't heard of this book or series before, but I'm sure I would have loved it when I was a kid.
