Jan Needle's zany professor and the long-suffering George and Cynthia are once again thrown into bewildering confusion by the dratted Cheap-Day Transferer Machine. This time it manages to transport them with dread finality back to Elizabethan England. Meanwhile Mophead and Jugears are stuck in the crumbling Yorkshire Farmhouse with the truculent Thinks Computer and the other eccentric electronic gadgetry and paraphernalia. Confused? This is a follow-up to, but not dependent upon, The Size Spies. It's as action-packed and crazy as its predecessor and bustling with the same comic-strip qualities. One serious note is the revelation, found only in this work, that young Shake-a-Spear was not solely responsible for the plays that bear his home. For a wide audience from junior through to secondary.
