Time Machine & Other stories by Melinda Szymanik

time machineTime Machine & Other stories by Melinda Szymanik. Pub. The Cuba Press, 2019.

Eighteen short stories about everything and a novella about a girl with an eye patch who gets kidnapped while dressed up as a pirate complete this very readable book for intermediate and junior high school students.

The first story about downhill racing in a home made cart with your sister who is on the brake will thrill you to bits. Then there is a story of a boy whose mother has eyes in the back of her head and she knows everything you are going to do. Is she an alien?.

Top it off with three stories about time machines and a boy who gets into a cage with a crocodile and others and you have a neat collection of stories to read.

You don’t have to read them all, although you be mad not to, and you can pick it up read for ten minutes and put it down. Give it a crack there is lots of imagination here.
