he’s even built a little robot that uses a pager to leave messages The one thing that Caleb doesn’t understand is idioms When Caleb overhears his mom say “pockets of time” he is surprised when his shirt magically has lots of pockets each holding a miniature watch This incident is justthe beginning of the adventures that Caleb has as he is whisked off to the land of Brumantia where anytime an adult says an idiom it becomes reality for him and his new friends Caleb must use his wits and some creative language to get everyone home and in one pieceIn A Pocket Of Time is a fun fast paced page turner that children are going to love Caleb is a smart character who comes up with clever ways to solve the problems that he faces His sidekick Lulu is a sweet little girl who made me smile throughout the book I really enjoyed the concept of rhyming words as the currency in Brumantia and found myself rhyming with the children at the bank This story is perfect for kids who are still learning the subtle nuances of language and entertaining enough for adults to enjoy with their kidsThis book was provided to Compulsion Reads for review by the author I got this book for free through Goodreads First Reads25 stars to be honestThis is a book about idioms but it's dressed as a sort of fantasy adventure The idea of a book about idioms is really nice Those are always the hardest part to learn when you're studying a foreign language I mean while you were reading the story of Caleb you were actually learning new idioms without strugglingAt the same time the story behind it was a bit weak I felt as if there were some links I missed and for this reason the plot seemed to be a bit confusing every now and then I mean there were some passage in the book were the author simply jumped from one scene to the other And I have the feeling that there were some things left unexplainedAnyway if you need a way to learn idioms that's the book for you If you're looking for a nice little story well it is the concept is really interesting but it's not good developed This is brilliant I got so carried away and wish it wouldn’t end Hope there’ll be a seuel soon I have won a copy of this book from Goodreads Giveaways After I've had a chance to read it and formulate my thoughts I'll post an honest review Stay tuned This is a good book for kids learning idioms but the ending is uite a let down as there is too much left unanswered that should have been the climax of the book
