Timothy Mean and the Time Machine by William AE Ford (Author)
Paperback: 24 pages
Age Range: 2-6 years although older children will find it entertaining
Publisher: Independently published
With Timothy Mean’s amazing imagination and time machine, anything and anywhere is possible! Join Timothy on a magical rhyming adventure as he skips through time and pranks with pirates, gets daring with dragons, and even teases a T-Rex!“It’s Monday. Hip hip hooray! Where shall we travel in time today? With Timothy Mean, every day is a rhyme in time!
What a wonderful book this is with highly detailed beautiful and imaginative pictures and words. The book is very humorous too and to be a good book you need humour.
The words magically lose you in the pictures as you join in Timothy Mean’s adventure with him. The descriptive verse transports you along with the time machine so you end up believing it is real.
This is an excellent, well put together book by William A E Ford and stylishly illustrated by Marcelo Simonetti.
My own favourite line is “It’s Monday. Hip hip hooray! Where shall we travel in time today?”
Whoever cheers because it’s Monday? Timothy Mean would because as this book will inform you, every day is an exciting day to look forward to when you have a Time Machine as good as Timothy’s.
A highly recommended book, especially if read as a bedtime book. Parents will enjoy it as much as the children and both will be so inspired they will dream of being transported to future or past times for interesting adventures.
About William A.E. Ford
William has always had a passion for books, writing and story-telling. William’s favourite way to end a cosy evening is to spend time dreaming up and reading bed-time stories to his five wonderful children.
Just one of his many stories, ‘Timothy Mean and the Time Machine’ was inspired by the spark of his children’s colourful imaginations as they tirelessly created unique, laughter filled days from even the most mundane, everyday objects and situations!
Born in England, William currently lives in Oslo, Norway with his wife and five children.
‘Timothy Mean and the Time Machine’ is William’s first published work and he plans to publish more books shortly.
