Review Text

A disappointing odyssey to follow Hilda Lewis' superb historical novel The Gentle Falcon. Peter Grant bought a very old model boat for a few shillings in Radcliff Village, an English seaside town. It proves to be a magic miniature vessel which will expand to carry all four Grant children into the distant past anywhere in the world,- to Egypt when the pyramids were new, to ancient Asgard, and to London at the time of William the Conqueror, where they meet Matilda, a child in the time of William the Conqueror. On a later visit the Grant children bring Matilda to the present where she is embroidering a tapestry for the local bazaar. All in all, a pretty dreary chronicle. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
