It’s not just where, but also when you’re from that counts!
At twelve, Liam Trinder discovers he's a Time Drifter, time-travelling with other teens from across the ages to save reality from splintering. While his own life feels like it's falling apart, Liam is struggling to learn the ropes as the Drifters are confronted by someone with the knowledge to destroy them all—and thus Time itself.
The Secret of Why Bumblebees Buzz is revealed within this short story; a fun tale told from a child's perspective and intended to be read aloud by anyone who needs a lift! When 5-year-old Bobby is laughed at for not knowing how to ride his new bicycle, his bee-keeper neighbor tells him the story of young Bartholomew Bumblebee and what he discovers during a surprising adventure in their orchard.
