Celebrating Irish Children’s Books | Online School and Family Book Festival. This year we are part of the Dublin Book Festival.

Elsetime

A haunting story of friendship, courage, time-travel and a very special crow.

It is January 6th 1928, the day before the Great Flood. There’s a snowstorm and the river is about to burst its banks – fourteen souls will be lost. Can Glory, an orphan with only one hand, her time-travelling friend Needle and their pet crow change the future? Is there anyone among all those people entombed in that snow-shrouded town who will listen? Warning: Time-travel isn’t something you should try unless you are prepared to face the consequences.

Inspired by the Great Flood of London, ELSETIME is an epic story of courage, determination and time-travel from debut Irish author, Eve McDonnell.

“Rich with historical detail – Elsetime is both classic in tone and original in vision.”

The Irish Times

“An enchanting, time twisting adventure. beautifully written.”
