The Machine

by Bill Myers
B&H Kids

Twin siblings Jake and Jennifer aren't exactly thrilled when they learn they are joining their archaeologist father on his "expedition" to Israel. They don't really know him, but because they've lost their mom they have no other choice. Jake isn't terribly excited, but he doesn't seem to mind all that much either. Jennifer is less than pleased, and dreading everything about her new life. Will they be able to accept their dad for who he is - crazy time machine and all? Or is the science he is dabbling in more dangerous than it is worth? 

So I'm going to start by saying that this book was absolutely wonderful! I know I'm not a kid anymore, but that didn't make a lick of difference when it came down to enjoying this story! Kids of all ages will appreciate the adventure contained in these pages, and I venture to say that adults will enjoy the thrill of the ride as well. It was a fun book to read, it was unique, it was creative (I mean, how else can I explain Robbie?!) and the twins were absolutely fantastic! Yes, they had their issues (ok, they had some things come up from time to time) but they were dealing with some tough stuff. Highly recommended, and a book I am stashing away for my future children.
