Description

Twelve-year-old George has no idea what to expect when she's sent to stay with eccentric relatives following the disappearance of her brother. Soon after her arrival, she learns that Uncle Constantine has been kidnapped. George sets off to recover him and is joined by two orphaned boys along the way and Cavendish, a talking map. Together they visit magical worlds full of monsters, witches, and dragons as they attempt to find Constantine--the Timekeeper--a man of great significance. If he's not rescued, events will cease to happen at their designated times, disrupting the unfolding of the universe. Can this ragtag crew save the future before being outwitted by evil captors?

Review quote

"The protagonist, George (she hates to be called Georgina), is always engaging. . . And the dialogue in the opening chapters is endlessly entertaining. . . Peculiar, oddball moments keep readers surprised from beginning to end."--Kirkus Reviews

"An ideal entry point for those new to speculative fiction. The protagonists build courage and learn hearty lessons
. . . A cantankerous magical tablet who serves as a map and doomsday clock shines out from among other amusing characters, lending a refreshingly modern feel to the tale."--School Library Journal
