A Tale of Two Time Travellers
by Craig Vann

Skypilot Sewell loves the past. It’s no surprise then, that when his brilliant inventress aunt Beatrice provides him with the opportunity to time travel, Sky is immediately on board. His best friend Zac will take a little more convincing…

So begins the young men’s journey through time, space, and 18th century England—where, separated from each other immediately, they meet a host of fascinating characters. Among them are people of fancy and fact, including the charming and roguish highwayman Jacques DuTemps, the beautiful Lady Rachel, and Brummbär the famous bear, as well as history’s own Henry Cavendish, the celebrated scientist and natural philosopher, and John Fielding, the ‘Blind Beak’ of London and founder of Britain’s first police force.

The pair has 39 days to find each other and enjoy what history has to offer without being found out… or hanged for witchcraft. Will Sky and Zac have the wits to survive the 1700s? Can Sky really leave Helena to the history books? And how to explain their Nikes?
