Z's liked what we've read but it seems to have fallen by the wayside for several other books. We'll come back to it at some point.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0805065717, Hardcover)

In this innovative time-travel tale, Enzensberger treats history with the same wit, knowledge, adn charm that he broght to mathematics in The Number Devil.

When fourteen-year-old Robert blinks, he is pulled into the place and time of whatever he happens to be looking at. A television documentary leaves him shivering in Siberia in 1956, a movie drops him into the opal mines of post-war Australia, a photo on a mantle zips him off to impoverished Weimar Germany. And that's only the beginning. Hans Magnus Enzensberger takes us through seven countries and historical periods, recreating in each place the mood and temper of the time. But how can Robert return to his own home and kitchen? Landing in seventeenth-century Holland as apprentice to a great painter, Robert comes upon a solution -- but only if he can recall the future, perfectly.

Readers will be swept along by Enzensberger's fast-paced plot, keen eye for detail, fine sense of romance and intrigue, and clever techniques for propelling Robert along his journey. An enchanting introduction to world history, Lost in Time is an engaging novel for readers of all ages.
