Book Review: Odo and the Time Children by Che Dee

Good day to you. Zebee here. My boss Joy just finished reading a story to us here at the V Zoo about England years ago and a time traveling. See, there’s this cat, well, why don’t I let Joy tell you about it.

Odo and the Time Children is an imaginative story about Odo, a talking time traveling cat, Meadowsweet and her brother Turnip. The children find themselves with a big problem on their hands, when Odo appears. A talking cat isn’t something you can ignore, and when he offers to help the children find the lost golden coin, they can’t say no. Little did the children know that this would involve traveling through time and running into some not very nice people.

Che Dee has woven a delightful tale that makes it hard to put the book down. Her imagination draws you in and keeps you until the last page. Set in Saxon times, modern times and several times in between, you get a sense of what it would be like to travel into the future where everything was strange and wonderful at the same time.

This book is great for children around nine and up. Odo and the Time Children will spark their imaginations and they will learn a little about Saxon England at the same time.

So, where can you but this great book? It’s an eBook which means you can download it and start reading it right away. It’s available at:
Calderwood Books

I guess the only thing I didn’t like about the book is that she didn’t have me in it. After all, I can talk and the children could have ridden on my back. Oh well, I can’t be in every book.

See you back here Sunday with more fun things going on at the world zoos.
