Phineas B. Fuddle, a brilliant, yet utterly mad scientist in Victorian London, decides to use his homemade time machine to improve some of the great (and not so great) civilizations of the past. Fuddle's two bumbling colleagues are trying desperately to fetch him back to their present. Unbeknownst to the Professor, his travels in time are wreaking havoc by creating alternate realities including an Earth transformed by ancient Egyptians with thoroughly modern machinery, a world where the Great Guru B. Fuddle restratified the caste systems of ancient India, and a land that has brought the Hell of Hieronymus Bosch to life. If Phineas B. Fuddle isn't stopped quickly, the whole universe is going to implode… (more)

The Remarkable Worlds of Professor Phineas B. Fuddle by Boaz Yakin, Erez Yakin and Angus McKie.

Two English scientists Angus and McKee learn that strange climactic changes and invasions of even stranger creatures are caused by the time travel exploits of the eponymous Prof. Fuddle. Apparently Fuddle decided to travel through time to share technology with earlier cultures in order to prevent violence and warfare. Instead he creates a time paradox of multiple, overlapping universes.

Angus and McKee follow Fuddle through time in an attempt to reverse Fuddle's interventions. Most of the plot is nonsensical but fun as the two English scientists visit pharaoh's Egypt, ancient India, and medieval England. They get in and out of scrapes, and eventually find Fuddle and return him home. Or do they?

The best part of this book is the illustration with colorful, chaotic scenes of ancient cultures adapting to modern technology that come out as cross between Where's Waldo? and William Hogarth.
