Summary

The astounding new novel from the best-selling and Costa short-listed author of Time Travelling with a Hamster, this is a story for everyone of 10 and older who loves adventure, laughs and tears.

When 12-year-old Georgie makes friends with an eccentric retired scientist, she becomes the test subject for a thrilling new experiment: a virtual reality, 3-D version of the future.

Then a deadly virus threatens to wipe out every dog in the country, and Georgie’s beloved dog, Mr Mash, gets sick. Which is bad - but worse is still to come.

As the world is thrown into chaos, Georgie embarks on a desperate quest: to save every dog on earth and all of humanity....

...without actually leaving the room.

An extraordinary quest with the biggest stakes of all and a huge idea at its heart, this is time travel - but not as you know it.

Very Good

Good it's not really about dogs which I like it's more about time travelling to the future in a virtual reality to get a cure for a disease that will kill the world

Gave up

Sadly illegible, I found myself focussing so much on trying to translate the strong liverpudlian accent of the narrator, that it was impossible to follow any plot.
I had to give up after half an hour.

Great

It was an absolutely amazing book which was an extremely enjoyable book to read I really enjoyed reading it and would recommend it to anyone over the age of 10 because it can be a bit dark during reading.

Target audience loved it!

My 8 years old daughter loved the book, but from an adult's perspective the story is over the top. The reader can do one accent only and her attempts at imitating American accent is just abysmal.
