Tommy doesn’t feel much like a hero, and who would with an unbearable family, new school ‘blues’ and the threat of the Higgins Twins’ fists on Monday morning. But then a chance meeting with old Mr Petrovsky propels Tommy into a time-travelling, adventure-chasing double life. By day he’s just a normal, messed-up football-loving kid but his nights are spent visiting aliens, fighting mythical creatures and even winning the World Cup! But can he learn to win at school, too? And, when Mr Petrovsky tells Tommy about his childhood escape from Russia, will he have the courage to become a real hero?

A time-travelling, edge-of-your-seat adventure with 27 illustrations by Patrick Hawkins.

BRilliant book for all ages A superb book. Tommy Turners adventures are well written and the fast pace draws the reader in to see how each element works out. THis first book bodes well for further books as his travels in this book cover a variety of subjects in historical time as well as established myth. NIce family back story for the reader to get involved with. Absolutely recommend it.

A fantastic adventure, well worth exploring! Tommy is a boy who yearns to be a hero, desperate to escape from his tedious home life and wanting to be accepted at school.A chance encounter grants him his wishes and propels him on a voyage of self discovery where he finds magical worlds within fantastical quests. Adventures with Perseus and fighting the Gorgons! Flying away and escaping on the back of Pegasus to encounters with the Anjulongs and other worldly places. Tommy even finds himself at the World Cup final.. Tommy then…
