An enchanting journey through time and through history, this phenomenal European bestseller is a magically evocative novel for readers of all ages. Fifteen-year-old Robert is a dreamer and one evening while he is watching television his eyes blur over and he quite literally disappears from his kitchen. He has become a time traveller. Each journey takes him further from his home and further back through the centuries, and soon he no longer holds any hope of returning...until he becomes a painter's apprentice in 17th century Amsterdam, where at last his photographic memory may help him to return to the future.
