Book Overview


“One of my favourite middle-grade writers” Kiran Millwood Hargrave, author of The Girl of Ink and Stars

When 12-year-old Georgie makes friends with an eccentric retired scientist, she becomes the test-subject for a thrilling new experiment: a virtual reality, 3D version of the future.

Then a deadly virus threatens to wipe out every dog in the country, and Georgie’s beloved dog Mr Mash gets sick. Which is bad – but worse is still to come.

As the world is thrown into chaos, Georgie embarks on a desperate quest: to save every dog on earth and all of humanity…

… without actually leaving the room.

An extraordinary quest with the biggest stakes of all, and a huge idea at its heart, this is time travel – but not as you know it.

“How awesome is Ross Welford? Consistently original, believable and filmable (please). A terrific adventure” Observer Children’s Books of the Month

“Will keep readers on the edge of their seats. Welford gets better with each book.” Daily Mail
