I remembered adoring this book as a child — let's face it, it was basically Maggie-crack, as it was all about time travel and dogs and 14th century Scotland. It also had cute illustrations of puppies and men in kilts. Looking back at it now, I can see where my early fixation with Robert Bruce came from, as well as my obsession with chivalry.
Anyway, I just dug it out of my shelves and read it to Thing 1 & Thing 2, who are now 7 and 8 years old. They were absolutely delighted and Thing 2 declared that it was the best book ever written besides THE INVENTION OF HUGO CABRET.
So that is my unofficial review. Maggie-crack and also, the best book ever written besides THE INVENTION OF HUGO CABRET, according to a 7-year-old boy. Worth tracking down.
