Professional reviews

"John Shea really knows how to wring the last ounce of starry-eyed wonder and excitement out of a story. NICK OF TIME--the kind of book that kids will love--recounts the adventures of a boy who uses a time machine to help a beloved ancestor. It's got Nazis, pirates, ancient castles, and time-travel. Who can resist? Shea manages to sound like 12-year-old Nick, and, when necessary, his 6-year-old sister, Kate. Bell is a gifted writer, and Shea brings his varied characters to life. Their depiction of 1939 Britain, when many people refused to believe the Nazi threat, rings true. The young Nick McIver deserves wider recognition. M.S.
