    One thought on “Terry: The Time Travelling Tortoise”

    1. This is an incredibly charming and funny story, full of playful humour and engaging characters. We follow Terry, a tortoise with problems coming out of and going into his shell. Made of gleaming metal, this silver machine gives Terry the option to take an excellent adventure through time. He reluctantly sets off on his journey, ricocheting from one familiar face to the next, all the while his main concern being where his next round of tea and crumpets is coming from.This reminded me of the warm [...]

    2. This book is bloody good fun, it is a Children's book for adults. I refuse to read it to my daughter as we would end up having a heated debate about time travel paradoxes and I would also have to explain what a shallow grave is.The story is witty, the characters are bizarre, a woman with curly wurly arms? Sounds tasty! But for me the highlight is the illustrations, every few pages you get a little drawing of the characters and they are really well done, Mr Wolf has obviously spent a lot of time [...]

    3. This was a fun story about a tortoise who, despite being a bit sleepy, manages to travel across time and space getting into all sorts of wonderful adventures. I found myself smiling through various scenes and chuckling at others. There was also some great wordplay which gave various parts of the story some colourful rhythms. My favourite chapter was Treetops and Teapots which had a cartoonish Queen Victoria obsessed with collecting teapots. I couldn't stop laughing at the part where Terry's shel [...]

    4. Fantastic and alive story, packed with cultural references but works fine without them, adding layers of fun finds. I don't know a reference-happy bestselling author who can claim that!!Alive with Wolfian wit and electric, comic dialogue, Terry is a must read for children, both inner and the rubbish kind.I just wish it had more illustrations!

    5. Brilliant and great fun to read - a good few laugh out loud moments. The author has a great imagination for all the worlds that Terry time travels to. I'll update once I get my 12yr old to read it :-)

    6. This is my debut book, suitable for both kids and adults who want to go along on a silly ride of adventurous nonsense!

    7. I received this book as a First Reads give-away. This is a very fun romp through time with a reluctant time traveler. It is not heavy, or laced with hidden meaning. It is perfect for the target audience. Age 7+ readers will find this easy to read, fast-paced, and not too long. With Terry encountering a wide range of "real" and not-so-real characters, there is always a new twist around each corner. If you have someone reluctant to get into reading, have them try this book. It may change their min [...]

    8. This is my debut book, suitable for both kids and adults who want to go along on a silly ride of adventurous nonsense!

    9. Just from reading the blurb and the first couple of pages I thought this book was hilarious and light-hearted. I absolutely loved the humour. However, as I read on unfortunately I could not see it as a children's story. It displayed a large array of references that only adults would understand but held all other potential for being a children's story. I feel that the content would not be understood by children thus not particularly befitting any particular audience.
