Here is a glowing sucker octopus, with its limbs spread out, pumpkin-coloured, looking like a just exploded Roman candle in the night sky

Wall Street Journal on Timeline

  • Description

    Finn wakes up with a start. The goblins are on the loose and the house is in an uproar! When they flee, Finn’s dog Sep follows so Finn quickly gathers his clothes to join the chase…

    Each spread in this exquisitely drawn book is packed with detail, and the text gives the reader tasks along with telling the story: help Finn gather his clothes; find a mouse, three bulls, five rabbits; find the right keys for the right lock; locate the beginning and end of each maze…

    1. Youth Services Book Review (US)

      The deep dark colors of the pages make the experience dreamlike; in fact, using a flashlight is a fun way to search for the paths and I can imagine a child under the covers after lights have been turned off enjoying an adventure before sleep.

    2. Puzzle Prime

      We personally love all of them (Timeline, Follow Finn) and think they are great reads for children in pre-school and primary school.

    3. Emma Perry, My Book Corner (UK)

      Rich in detail and brilliantly imaginative, it held our attention for an absolute age… Follow Finn is a
      mesmerizing book – highly recommended

    4. Lucy, Children’s Bookshop (NZ)

      Each page contains a maze and lots of things to find as we follow Finn through a fantastical fabulous world…There are just so many cool things to see in the highly detailed pictures.

    5. My Book Corner (UK)

      Let me say from the beginning, this book is a stunner! It’s got ‘gift potential’ written all over it. Rich in detail and brilliantly imaginative, it held our attention for an absolute age.

    6. Sue Esterman (The Reader)

      This is a lovely book. The use of one colour and black and white on each double-page spread is unusual, and makes it more challenging to find the clues, but my 7-year-old niece hung in there and we found 99.9% of what we should have found.
      Peter Goes has a great imagination, and I think it is great to have a book about goblins, which is my personal favourite kind of magic creature.
      It’s a big step up from Where’s Wally! Highly recommended.
