Description

A magical fantasy, an allegorical cautionary tale, a feast of language, a celebration of creativity—this dazzling debut novel is poised to become a story for the ages!

Penelope is running out of time!

She dreams of being a writer, but how can she pursue her passion when her strict, obsessive mother schedules every minute of her life? And how will she ever prove that writing is worthwhile if her mother keeps telling her to "get busy!" and "be more productive"?

Then one day, Penelope discovers a hole in her schedule—an entire day completely unplanned!—and she mysteriously falls into it. What follows is a mesmerizing journey through the Realm of Possibility where Penelope sets out to find and free the Great Moodler, the one person who may have the answers she seeks. But a menacing shadow tracks Penelope's every move. With darkness on her heels, she must face an army of Clockworkers, battle the evil Chronos, take a daring Flight of Fancy, rescue her friend, Dill, and free herself from the grip of time.

Brimming with clever language and masterful wordplay, The Lost Track of Time is a high-stakes adventure that will take you to a place where nothing is impossible and every minute doesn't count—people do!

        Starred review from January 5, 2015
        Penelope escapes from her organized mother’s stringent schedule through a portal that sends her tumbling into the Realm of Possibility, where idle time has been forbidden. To get home, Penelope must track down the fairy godmother–like Great Moodler, rescue her new friend Dill from life as a repetitive Clockworker, and free the realm from the hypnotic rule of the overlord Chronos. In the tradition of L. Frank Baum, Britt crafts a whimsical world, complemented by White’s (I Lived on Butterfly Hill) playful violet watercolors and a vibrant cast. Her spirited use of puns, homonyms, and clever time-related wordplay make the story a standout: worry warts are a real and harrowing affliction, the “Shadow of Doubt” literally looms large, and the trees in the “Naughty Woulds” whisper what ifs to prey on travelers’ self-doubts. Debut author Britt’s tale is an exuberant homage to the power of imagination and creative problem-solving, as well as the importance of making time for oneself, one’s dreams, and one’s friends. Ages 8–12. Author’s agent: Marietta Zacker, Nancy Gallt Literary Agency. Illustrator’s agent: Paul Rodeen, Rodeen Literary Management.

        July 1, 2015

        Gr 3-7-Middle school student Penelope yearns for time to think and write, but her every minute is scheduled, even her summer vacation. An inadvertently unscheduled day sends Penelope on a journey to the Realm of Possibility, where she learns about the disappearance of the Great Moodler, the subsequent rise to power of Chronos, and the banning of moodling (imagining and dreaming). Penelope's adventures unfold as she makes her way home. Jennifer Jiles provides a dynamic narration, infusing the interesting and vibrant characters with verve and keeping listeners' attention. VERDICT This fairy tale story will appeal to overscheduled children and fans of wordplay and puns, making it suitable for Language Arts classes, too.-Denise A. Garofalo, Mount Saint Mary College, Newburgh, NY
