Science Fiction Genre

So glad our year 6 children are looking at science fiction genre over the next few weeks.

This books is an old favourite of mine, I think it is the first time I read any thing in this genre.

The story involves a family whose father experiments with time travel with unsuspected consequences.

The family are troubled when Mrs Whatsit arrives with surprising news and so the adventure begins.  The plot is essentially about the power of good over evil and how the choices we make have a consequence. But with the inclusion of an all powerful brain known as IT, who is holding their father prisoner, as well as taking over the universe, the children have a real force of evil to conquer.

I am eager to see the response from the children!
