The Secret Adventures of Rolo – ‘Athelstan and the Time Tunnel’
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!
