Previously published as GIDEON THE CUTPURSE


Gideon Seymour, thief and gentleman, hides from the villainous Tar Man. Suddenly the sky peels away like fabric and from the gaping hole fall two curious-looking children. Peter Schock and Kate Dyer have fallen straight from the twenty-first century, thanks to an experiment with an antigravity machine. Before Gideon and the children have a chance to gather their wits, the Tar Man takes off with the machine -- and Peter and Kate's only chance of getting home. Soon Gideon, Peter, and Kate are swept into a journey through eighteenth-century London and form a bond that, they hope, will stand strong in the face of unfathomable treachery.

Boring! Haven't even finished it!

This book was amazing. It's something new, creative, and very well-written. The best part is that the sequel to this book was even better than the first, which is a very rare case (because sequels usually aren't good).

dystopic because time travelling can really put you out of your element.

A unique book, Gideon the Cutpurse succeeds where few have in capturing the feel of the time it represents (1763). (At least in my humble opinion).
A charming cast of characters and a wonderful twist at the end make this book a great read, anytime.
