    " Maybe it's been a while since I've read H.G. Wells, but I'm repeatedly surprised by his well-turned phrases. This children's story uses words sparingly, but with precision. The pictures are a little dark and creepy, but certainly add to the mysterious feel of the book. "

About the Author

H. G. Wells (1866–1946), born in Bromley, Kent, England, was apprenticed to a drygoodsman and a druggist before he made his way to the Royal College of Science where he studied biology. Known as the father of science fiction, he was also a prolific writer in other genres, including contemporary novels, history, and social commentary. As a spokesman for progress and peace, his middle period novels (1900–1920) were more realistic and covered lower-middle-class life, suffrage, and the emergence of feminist ideals that pushed against the limits set by male-dominated society.
