Description

Robbie has disappeared. And, since he'd been asking Saul a lot of questions about time travel, Saul has a good idea where he might have gone...

At school they've been doing a project on the future: will it be full of robots and shiny technology? Or will the environment have been destroyed? The last thing Saul wants to do is go there and find out for sure -- but there's no way Robbie will manage on his own in the twenty-second century.

The third book in Janis Makay's much-loved Time Traveller series, set in Peebles in the Scottish borders, takes the reader to an unpredictable and exciting future filled with thought-provoking discoveries.

What does the future hold in store, and can Saul get Robbie safely back to their own time?

Reviews

'A fun read with some serious points about friendship and safeguarding the planet for future generations.'
-- School Library Association

'I enjoyed this book [...] it was realistic even though it was about time and space travel because some of it was set in Scotland in places that I know. I would like to read others in the series'
-- Teen Titles
