Eddy receives an unusually large packing crate from his mysterious uncle, containing an old-fashioned bicycle with the ability to travel through time, and soon Eddy is on the ride of his life! Reading Age 9-12 years.
The strangest things seem to happen to the Hall family--like the time Eddy and Eleanor had an adventure and found an enchanted diamond, or the summer their cousin Georgie flew with geese.
