Time Traveling Toby by Graham Jones

Time Traveling Toby by Graham Jones and illustrated by Neil Parkinson is a new book available online for RRP £6.99. With the aim to bring English history to life, the first book in a series, Time Traveling Toby visits the battle of Britain.

The story of Toby a boy living in un unremarkable village, with its rhyming text, and a magic time traveling car is an easy to read book. The story tells of Toby and his brothers and their journey back in time. We start with Toby and his brothers facing the German bombers at Dover, can they raise the alarm in time?

The book is full of bright illustrations that the boy loves. He seems to have a fascination with anything to do with the war, and the army. This book gently takes children back to a time of their grandparents, but without anything to scary for younger readers and some great facts for the older ones. As a gentle introduction to a difficult topic, I think this is a great book and the boy enjoyed it too. Plenty of information for him to ask questions about and the right amount of detail. I am sure that Toby will be having lots of great adventures and I wonder where he will end up next?

About the author


  1. I would love to go back to when my Gran was a child in the 1930’s she told me so many wonderful stories and I would love to go back and share the experiences with her 🙂

  2. I’d travel back to when my parents were teens (70s) and would hang out with my mum and aunt and get to know them and find out what they were like before they had children.
