It's hard to get in a race against time when you have a time machine, but Joe McKinley somehow manages to do it anyway. When a freak power outage cripples all communication and transportation in the... More > area, Joe has mere hours in which to get from six thousand feet beneath the surface of Jerusalem to the office of the WORLDGOV High Council before he inadvertently starts World War Three. It doesn't help that he's in a totally unfamiliar city in a foreign country, he's lost all communication with those he trusts, and his time machine is missing. In the Fourth Book (Book Three) of the Grandpa Chronicles, Joe tangles with daredevil zeppelin pilots, hyperactive hedgehogs, an entire platoon of an army that doesn't actually exist, and a heck of a lot more. Buy the latest work by Evan McKinley to enjoy, preserve, and satisfy your curiosity as to how an eleven-year-old's life can depend on a single cassette tape.< Less
