A gripping thriller about time travel - from a Carnegie Medal-winning author.
Once a creature is extinct, it’s gone for ever, isn’t it? Not any more – as a butterfly from the past proves. The physicist mother of Kizzy Rye and Fraser Rye has invented an amazing time machine that can travel back into the past, snatch a plant or animal now extinct and bring it back into the present. It’s a wonderful achievement, a real scientific breakthrough. But the machine – ‘Rye’s Apparatus’ - has a horrifying potential. Suddenly Kizzy and Fraser find themselves caught up in a terrifying spiral of events – events that lead finally to a monstrous demand from a sinister and violent organization… WINNER OF THE 1995 EARTHWORM AWARD, 7-11 YEAR-OLD CATEGORY
