    One thought on “The Great Time Lock Disaster”

    1. Have you ever wanted to travel back in time or ahead to the future? What if you managed to do so but did not know the magic words to return back to your time? Well, Pete and Weasel, from ALLIGATERS OVERHEAD, are back and in trouble, again.In THE GREAT TIME LOCK DISASTER, sequel to ALLIGTORS OVERHEAD, by Author C. Lee McKenzie, twelve-year-old Pete Riley thinks that he’s not a good wizard and he’s not a good kid. He seems to find trouble no matter what he does. When he accidentally unlocks a [...]

    2. I haven’t read the first book in this series, but I didn’t feel left out. Pete Riley is such a great character and he proves that being a wizard isn’t easy. His friend Weasel is such a smart and cranky best friend to steer Pete on the right path. At least he tries to. These two together make quite the fun duo. This book is a clever and entertaining MG novel. I’ve read a handful of C. Lee McKenzie’s books now and I’m never disappointed.

    3. Pete Riley isn't very good at being an ordinary boy, but he's not much good at being a wizard either. Following the rules is pretty boring, and when he tries a time spell without permission, it goes all wrong. He unlocks a Time Lock and people start missing and turning up in centuries past and future. Pete and his friend Weasel fall back to Victorian England. They could be trapped there forever without video games and aunt Lizzie's pot roast if Pete can't figure out how to reverse the spell befo [...]

    4. It seems so matter what Pete does he gets himself and his best friend, Weasel, into some kind of jam. But this time, Pete (who is a wizard in training) has also involved his familiar, who just happens to be a crocodile. And the problem isn't just that Pete's cast as spell he wasn't supposed to, he's unlocked time! Now, he and his friends are stuck in England, which wouldn't be too bad if it wasn't on the eve of Queen Victoria being crowned. This is a great little adventure. But what I want to kn [...]

    5. The Great Timelock Disaster (now, that’s fine title for a middle grade book) is another terrific fantasy romp by author, C. Lee McKenzie. And setting a big chunk of the book in Victorian England? Yeah, that had me sold from the get-go.I’m not sure what I enjoyed more: the page-turning plot or the spot on dialogue and behavior of Peter and Weasel. Those two are such boys – I could see so many of my middle school students’ behaviors and conversations in McKenzie’s characters.Pete wants s [...]

    6. REVIEWER: SAFF4.0 ON THE MASQ SCALEI was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.This is a fun little adventure with some magic and wonder thrown in. The characters were likable and the pacing was good. Minimal typos, thorough editing, and a fun plot made this an enjoyable story.This was a good read but my review is based on this being a children's book because there were a few things that just wouldn't fly in an adult's book, but seeing as it's aimed at children it's probably [...]

    7. C.Lee McKenzie has done it again! In this sequel to Alligators Overhead (which I thoroughly enjoyed), the dynamic duo, Pete and Weasel find themselves trapped in Victorian England. There's never a dull moment in this ongoing adventure, filled with laughter and plenty of magical moments, as the two boys encounter one crazy situation after another.Delightful!

    8. This is a perfectly paced novel for younger readers of adventure. Throughout the book you will find that things don't always go to plan for Pete and his friend Weasel and that magic isn't always as easy as you might think.At the very beginning of the book we find Pete struggling with his magic and while unsupervised accidentally unlocks time travel. While trying not to make things worse he and Weasel are suddenly transported back in time to Victorian England. With some guidance from Pete's famil [...]

    9. Reviewed by Carla Trueheart for Readers' FavoriteThe Great Time Lock Disaster by C. Lee McKenzie is a charming, fast-paced middle grade novel with lots of magic and mayhem. Pete Riley is not a very good wizard. He has trouble with spells, and during a magic lesson with a witch named Harriet, he has so much trouble that he accidentally unlocks a Time Lock. Pete and his friend Weasel end up in England around the time of Queen Victoria’s coronation, and from there, they have to find out how to fi [...]

    10. I'd probably have liked this better if I'd read the first book, as I was not sure of some things, such as why alligators in this area can sort of talk and whether that's good or bad. The young wizards suitably can't work much real magic, but in that case, how come Pete manages to open a time tunnel to Victorian England? Naturally once this occurs it's only a matter of time before Pete and his pal Weasel get sucked in and drawn to a dirty, impoverished life in the countryside near Oxford, from wh [...]

    11. Poor Pete Riley! He's not a very good ordinary kid, and not a very good wizard either.At least that is what everyone tells him.So when he sneezes during a spell he wasn't supposed to be working on in the first place, time starts to warp, sweeping Pete & his friend Weasel to Victorian England.I feel for Pete -- the poor kid exasperates his teacher & his friend, and they don't express any confidence in him. It all kind of spirals downward, until Pete doesn't feel like he can do anything ri [...]

    12. After reading Alligators Overhead by C. Lee McKenzie I was excited to read the second book in the series, The Great Time Lock Disaster. Pete and Weasel’s story picked up right where they left off in the last book, which made it very easy to follow along. I liked traveling back in time with them and learning about what life was like in the 1800s. I definitely wouldn’t have wanted to eat the food they were given. I enjoyed the banter between Weasel and Pete, because Weasel seems a little unhap [...]

    13. A magical and mysterious ride! Pete Riley is anything but a regular kid and has a hard time fitting in as a wizard-in-training when he accidentally whisks himself – and his best friend, Weasel – off to a strange place where they are launched into a race against time to return before they are stuck forever. This was a spooky fun adventure filled with creepy folks, loyal friends, on-the-run suspense --- all wrapped up in super cool time travel! I enjoyed reading about how the two friends, Pete [...]

    14. What Happens When You Unlock Time? Read this fun middle-grade adventure and find outI really enjoyed these characters. Pete is learning to be a wizard only he messes up a lot and like any kid is impatient and tends not wait or ask before he does something he knows not to do. His friend 'Weasel is the wise one and book smart. They balance each other very well. The name of the first book in this is series is what caused me, an adult, to grab a middle-grade book to read. It's called "Alligators Ove [...]

    15. I received a free copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This book, though the sequel to Alligators Overhead, can be read on its own I would say as there were no real references to the first book and because of that it can stand on its own. It is about Weasel and Pete accidentally going back in time and therefore being confronted with various problems, the biggest one of course being how to get back to their own time.This book was fun to read, really quick and [...]

    16. I have not read the first book, but I was able to pick up this book and be involved in the storyline pretty easily! I received this book (#2) for free through First Reads, and I'm glad I did. I won't give details of the book, since not everyone reading these reviews have read it. However, I would like to point out one thing that really stuck out to me. The main character in this book finds himself in trouble over and over again, and as a teenager or a young adult especially (but maybe even olde [...]

    17. First, a disclaimer. I received this book as part of the first program. That being said, I liked the story, it is a young adult book following a boy and his friend on an adventure thru time to the late 1800's. While the boy is in the process of becoming a wizard, if you a looking for a Harry Potter doppleganger, he is not. This boy has issues and I don't mean that in a bad way, the lead character is finding his way and is somewhat lost as to his identity, similar to what I am sure many pre-teen [...]

    18. This is one of those books that you definitely need to read the first book or you will feel lost as I did for much of the story. Pete Riley is having a hard time and the adults in his life are frustrated with the young wizard. This is an entertaining novel for young readers; the character and the plot will amuse and delight the reader. 3.75/5 STARS: **I want to thank the author and/or the publisher for providing a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review; all opinions are [...]

    19. In this sequel to ALLIGATORS OVERHEAD, Pete Riley and his friend, Weasel, end up in the past because of a magical error. When Pete, wizard-in-training, messes up on a spell, they vanish to Victorian England. They sound funny, dress funny, and they’re not safe around pickpockets and other ruffians. They need to return to their time period, and fast. I loved book 1 and enjoyed this one even more. The English setting was authentic, and Pete and Weasel had a great voice. I received an ARC in excha [...]

    20. This is the second in a series and I missed the first one, but this one was so compelling, I will definitely look for it! Pete is a kid who is training to be a wizard. He is not very patient but he really wants to do the right thing. He's also easily distracted, which for a magician, is probably not a good thing. He does some magic accidentally and ends up in some really big trouble. Not like time out trouble, like being trapped in the wrong century trouble. It was funny and exciting. I liked it [...]

    21. Although this is the second in a series and I haven't read the first, luckily that didn't hamper my enjoyment at all. Poor Pete is a rather hapless wizard in training whom is always getting into scrapes, needing the help of his friends to get out of them. Once I'd got over the fact that one of his friends is a talking crocodile I really enjoyed this fast paced adventure story. The Dickens overtones in Victorian London were particularly enjoyable for me. An excellent read for kids aged 8 and abov [...]
