A wonderful, touching story about a young orphan boy and an old clockmaker. After meeting each other, the boy experiences happiness for the first time. I don’t want to reveal too much of the story, but the two share something miraculous. It’s a heartwarming story with beautiful pencil drawn illustrations. It is not a difficult read but should definitely be read aloud to children that aren’t ready to read for themselves!

Erin lives in modern NYC, attends a wealth private school, and is studying ancient Egypt when she accidentally hits her head in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and is transported back in time, becoming Irun. Too childish for me, but I liked the cat, Ta-She.
