Oh dear. Even making as many allowances as possible for the fact that this was for quite young readers, I just couldn't find the rationale for the time travel anything other than ridiculous. I mean, seriously, there's a train comes rushing out of nowhere, invisible to everyone in both our present and the past except for the two kids who've been chosen (how, and by whom?) to go on the mission to the Blitz. To do what, you might ask? Well, to save one ten-year old boy, who died in his house, when he went out in an air raid to check his deaf grandmother had heard the alert. Oookay, so the powers that be (running the time train) can rescue one person, so what about rescuing 10, or 1000, or how about everyone who died in the Blitz. Or in the war, while they're at it.
