Shortlisted for the Costa Children's Book Award and longlisted for the CILIP Carnegie Medal, Ross Welford's Time Travelling with a Hamster is a truly original debut novel from an extraordinarily talented new voice in children's books.

When Al Chaudhury discovers his late dad's time machine, he finds that going back to the 1980s requires daring and imagination. It also requires lies, theft, burglary, and setting his school on fire. And he has to make sure he doesn't lose his pet hamster, Alan Shearer...
You'll laugh, cry and wonder at this race-against-time story of a boy who travels back to 1984 to prevent a go-kart accident and save his father's life.
The other three books - The 1,000-Year-Old Boy; What Not to Do If You Turn Invisible; and The Dog Who Saved the World - in our collection are equally surprising, exciting and magnificent: Alfie can remember the last Viking invasion but no one believes him... He soon loses everything in a fire and decides it's time to find a way to die; Ethel learns the joy that comes from being invisible is rather short-loved; and 12-year-old Georgie has to save every dog on Earth and all of humanity without leaving her room when a virtual reality experiment goes wrong.
