Book Blurb


With Timothy Mean’s amazing imagination and time machine, anything and anywhere is possible! Join Timothy on a magical rhyming adventure as he skips through time and pranks with pirates, gets daring with dragons, and even teases a T-Rex!“It’s Monday. Hip hip hooray! Where shall we travel in time today?” With Timothy Mean, every day is a rhyme in time!


I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.

Even though my children are all grown up I still appreciate the importance of surrounding children of all ages with books.  When my children were small I loved picture books and I still do now.  Picture books are like two books in one as a child can make up their own story by looking at the pictures and as they get older they can read the book themselves.

William AE Ford has written a wonderful, imaginative, entertaining story and it’s beautifully presented in a picture book format.  If you do buy the ebook format please do read it on a tablet or ereader that is colour compatible so you can fully appreciate the wonderful images in the background of the book.

I think this story would appeal to both boys and girls as Timothy is a character you could easily relate to and there’s probably a child like Timothy in every classroom.  Timothy is a little bored and decides to make himself a time machine.  With his expert time machine making skills he’s now ready for adventures and we follow Timothy for a week travelling through time and making new friends.

The text is written in a rhyming format that flows very well and you can imagine a child soon picking up the words and speaking them out aloud.  The author has written a story that is fun and entertaining but it also opens up the readers mind to a whole new world of imaginations.  If this book was read in a class the teacher could open up a great discussion with the children asking them where they’d like to go on their time travels.

I love buying books as gifts and Timothy Mean and the Time Machine would make a wonderful Christmas present.
