Book Description

"A little something for everyone—history, humor, adventure, time travel. . . " --Kirkus Reviews

During the coldest winter ever, George and Gracie land in Menlo Park, New Jersey, 1879—near Thomas Edison’s famous laboratory. Mr. Edison has just invented a long-burning light bulb, but he’s keeping a huge secret: he’s also discovered time travel. In fact, he built his own time machine. The kids get an even bigger surprise when a young Mr. Crowe walks into Edison’s laboratory—as his assistant! The older and dangerous Mr. Crowe is sneaking around Menlo Park, too, with plans to destroy the time machine. If he does, George and Gracie will be stuck in 1879 . . . forever. The twins need Mr. Edison’s help. But can they stop Crowe in time?

Praise for Wizard of Menlo Park, New Jersey

"Kids are going to enjoy this fast-paced, sometimes funny and always heartfelt, adventure that blurs science fiction with history.  George and Gracie are heroes for the ages--past and present.  Can they save their parents?  Only time will tell."  --Kathy Appelt, Newbery Honor winner of The Underneath
