The Timely Twins & The Emerald Serpents
The Emerald Serpents is the first in a series of time-travel adventures that features 12-year-old tomboy Gertie and her timid twin-brother Laurie.
After their grandfather dies Laurie and Gertie discover a time machine in his secret workshop, but what good is a time machine that doesn’t work when you’re about to lose your home?
Their only hope of keeping the bailiffs at bay is a nationwide school history project that promises a £5,000 reward. Laurie is determined to win, but the school bully has other ideas. A terrible storm provides unexpected assistance in completing the time machine, but can this – and Francesca, a fellow pupil and feisty Italian girl with a mysterious background – help the twins save their home?
