May 7, 2012: I have read this book and all of the other magic books by Edward Eager more times than I can count. I read this in couple of hours yesterday while taking notes and sketches for another book quilt. This one will be the subject of a quilt for a Children's Literature challenge and I'm really excited about it.
This story combines time (thyme) travel, history and word play to make for a wonderful and timeless story. I won't spoil it except to say that every child deserves to read these books multiple times in their childhood and if you've made it past childhood without discovering them, you need to do that now!
