A lonely young boy, a tight-hearted aunt, a jolly taxi driver, a baby from the twenty-third century, and an eccentric gentleman with Superman abilities—Diana Hendry’s characters are improbable bookfellows! Yet she takes them all and creates a heartwarming and imaginative fantasy of time-travel. As narrator, James Saxon accepts the impossible and richly gives life to each character. He creates vocal persona who are distinct and convincing—Henry’s pain is real as he comes to love Sweetheart, and yet he helps release her. Both the author and narrator joyously convey the messages that the true time of the universe, "love time," is kept in one’s heart and that love provides the energy and hope for all things to happen.
