Just after 4pm in The Club on Tuesday, 4th May 2021, Patience Agbabi joins Bex!
She’s a poet and author of The Time Thief and is talking all about Elle and her Leapling classmates’ adventures through time!
Leaplings, children born on the 29th of February, are very rare. Rarer still are Leaplings with The Gift – the ability to leap through time. Elle has The Gift, and in The Infinite, she learned how to use it.
In The Time-Thief Elle leaps almost three whole centuries back in time, to catch a thief, help her friend and save our future.
It’s midsummer’s day and thirteen-year-old Elle and her Leapling classmates are visiting the Museum of the Past, the Present and the Future.
But on the day of the school trip, disaster strikes, and the most unique and valuable piece in the museum, the Infinity-Glass, is stolen! And worse still, Elle’s friend and fellow Infinite, MC², is arrested for the crime!
To prove his innocence Elle must leap back centuries in time, to a London very different from today. Along the way she will meet new friends, face dangers unlike any she has ever known, and face an old enemy who is determined to destroy her.
Can Elle find the missing Infinity-Glass and return it to its rightful home before it’s too late?
