Mortensen’s Escapades by Lars Jakobsen is a highly entertaining time travel adventure, where the protagonist – time traveler Konrad Mortensen – is involved in some of the most highly profiled events in human history.
The Tunnel is based on the rediscovery of an old discarded subway tunnel in Brooklyn and the murder of President Abraham Lincoln.
“Mortensen’s Escapades is a fun and entertaining title. It sneaks the education in and presents it in a way that doesn’t seem obvious but will still satisfy the curious. Both boys and girls can enjoy the story. While it’s rated for 4th to 8th grades, this is a title anyone can enjoy. Elementary and teen libraries/collections should give this title a serious look.” – School Library Journal.
