Becky is a typical thirteen year old girl. She likes Facebook, gossiping and plenty of sleep. So when she and her brother, Joe, are invited to stay with their 'loony' Uncle Percy at his stately home, she thinks it’ll be the worst summer ever. What she doesn't realise is that Bowen Hall is also home to a baby Triceratops, two Sabre-tooth tigers and the mythic hero, Will Scarlet...
'The Time Hunters' is a thrilling adventure that takes Becky, Joe, Uncle Percy and Will on a quest through time to find the legendary Golden Fleece.
Praise for The Time Hunters:
'From every angle, it’s an excellent work. This series couldn’t ask for a more vibrant opening chapter.' KIRKUS REVIEWS (awarded the KIRKUS STAR *)
'I really enjoyed reading THE TIME HUNTERS. You start off the action with a bang, drawing the reader in right away. Your writing is strong, and in places has a classic feel....It has terrific potential.' HARPER COLLINS
***** Carl Ashmore has written an entertaining book that children will love. READERS FAVOURITE
'This is a wonderful adventure. It has the magic of Lewis Carroll and Kenneth Grahame, the inventiveness of Roald Dahl and the writing skill of Rudyard Kipling in my opinion. It is the natural successor to Harry Potter. Brilliant!'
Four other books in the Time Hunters saga are also available: 'The Time Hunters and the Box of Eternity', 'The Time Hunters and the Spear of Fate' and 'The Time Hunters and the Sword of Ages.'
I am delighted to announce I have signed a contract with the major Brazilian publishing house, Bertrand Brasil, for them to publish 'The Time Hunters' as a print and ebook in Brazil.
