Molly Moon returns . . . and bumps into earlierversions of herself -- four of them, to be exact -- all kidnaped and transported back in time to nineteenth-century India by Molly's most fearsome nemesis yet, an insane maharaja. Molly foiled his plans once already, by stopping Primo Cell from becoming president of the United States. This time around, the maharaja is determined to alter the course of history. The only thing standing in his way is Molly and her brave pug, Petula. . . .

Georgia Byng grew up outside Winchester, in England, near the river Itchen, with three naughty brothers and a sister. Her dad was nature loving and her mum was very encouraging and warm. The nearby country lane with its many cottages was somewhere Georgia first found out about characters, for it was teeming with them, and she used to interview them. Otherwise she would try to sell these neighbours things she had made.
As a child she loved acting and so at 18 went to The Central School of Speech and Drama in London. After college she began to paint and write. She had always written poems and songs but now she started writing stories.
Her first were in comic strip, a medium that she worked with for five years. The Sock Monsters was her first published book in 1995 - a comic strip story for 5 - 7 year olds.
Georgia lives in a house in London full of old and new art, as her husband is the conceptual artist Marc Quinn. Marc keeps all sorts of strange things in the fridge - once he had to keep a Canadian frog in there as it was hibernating and had to be kept cold. They and their family, Tiger (17), Lucas (6) and Sky (2) love to travel, their favorite destination being India.
Georgia Byng is the author of
MOLLY MOON'S INCREDIBLE BOOK OF HYPNOTISM
MOLLY MOON STOPS THE WORLD
MOLLY MOON'S HYPNOTIC TIME TRAVEL ADVENTURE
MOLLY MOON MICKY MINUS AND THE MIND MACHINE
Since she is no longer an orphan and has been reunited with her parents, one might think that intrepid Molly Moon would slow down, but no! In this third adventure, Molly's time-travels take her to India in the late 1800s, where she matches wits with the conniving Maharaja of Waqt in an effort to save her beloved dog, Petula. In a daring move, she uses time-traveling crystals to challenge the circular notion of time. Clare Higgins is masterful. Not only does she give voice to the shifting moods and devious ambitions of the spoonerism-spouting Indian, but she also gives voice simultaneously to Mollys of varying ages as they speed together through India past and present.
