Have lost count of how many times we've gotten this out of the library

This is an excellent book and especially fun to read out loud. It's engaging for adults, and if read out loud to a child, I think it is appropriate for much younger (5) than the recommended age (8-12?) although you might have to spend some time helping a young child work out the ins and outs of time travel. There are engaging illustrations on each page which help with younger kids, too. It has a really delightful and playful relationship between the kids and their father, and also has a really clever bit about how we often assume that certain types of characters are one gender vs another. These can be great talking points with a child.

Great fun!

A must-read if you like silly stories, fun stories and/or great read-aloud chapter books! Perfect intro to science fiction if you're a fan of the genre, but still a laugh-out-loud tale if you're not. Essential reading for the 6-to-12 year old crowd.
