Re­viewed by Imo­gen Green­ing, age nine

Rolo is a Jack Rus­sell res­cue dog who now lives with the smi­ley lady and the floppy-haired boy. One morn­ing on a walk, Rolo meets two tiny for­est folk and a tree guardian (Athel­stan). They in­vite Rolo to go down the time tun­nel un­der­neath Athel­stan’s tree. Rolo goes on lots of se­cret ad­ven­tures to mo­ments in his­tory such as the English Civil War, Pom­peii, the Blitz and the in­ven­tion of cat’s eyes. Through­out the book he also writes his funny Dog Blogs. I would rec­om­mend this book to any­one in­ter­ested in dogs or his­tory, aged 8-11. There are three more books in the se­ries that I can’t wait to read next!

My favourite char­ac­ter is Daisy be­cause she’s so dar­ing and brave! I would def­i­nitely rate this five stars. If you en­joy mys­tery and drama, then this book is for you!
