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 two books - The 1,000-Year-Old Boy and What Not to Do If You Turn Invisible - 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; while Ethel learns the joy that comes from being invisible is rather short-loved.
