Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Twins Finley and Fiona love working in their parents' Sweets Shop, especially when their parrot, Tick Tock, squawks, Look at the time!, a sure sign that they are about to get a special visitor. This time it's pilot Amelia Earhart, who takes them time-traveling to 1932 in her plane, Little Red Bus, to join her on her legendary flight across the Atlantic Ocean. Together, they experience history, conquer fears, and are back home in time for dessert. The first in what promises to be the clever Time Hop Sweets Shop chapter-book series, this tale covers not only an impressive breadth of history but also includes lessons on gender equality and a message of bravery, all in a few short, readable pages. The biographical information and supplemental discovery materials are well curated and complement the story experience, and as a cherry on top of this sweet package, there's even a nice element of diversity and inclusion in the mention of Finley having a hearing aid.--Worthington, Becca Copyright 2016 Booklist"
