Discover, or rediscover, a 'time machine' which takes the reader back into the past. It depicts the history of one particular piece of land in Sydney from 1788 to 1988 through the stories of the various children who have lived there. This new edition includes a new timeline, which traces the history of the characters in the book, as well as the history of Australia, and is right up-to-date with reference to the Australian government's apology to Indigenous Australians. Ages 6+.
