It's just a regular trip for Kevin, and he comes back with just the regular sorts of things. Some local fudge, a scented candle for his mum ...and his own personal god.

Review quote

I know now what they mean by a plot that is toe-curlingly good ... brilliantly inventive and rollicking fantastical adventure BookBag Frozen in Time shows [Ali's] skill at fusing traditional children's storytelling with modern tales ... Sparkes' sci-fi conspiracy thrills will keep 21st-century kids transfixed Books Quarterly This is a gripping adventure packed full of spies, missing scientists, mystery and intrigue TBK Magazine plots galore: spies, scientists and secrets ... this book is something more than an exciting read ... This book will undoubtedly appeal to children but I think adults who were children during the fifties will find it fascinating too Carousel children will relish the exciting action sequence Books for Keeps
