Reader's Annotation: Will they get back to the time to save a Cathedral?
Summary: Ned has to travel back in time to figure out what happened to the Bishops Bird stump and help it back to the present (2058)
My Evaluation: Oh my word... This book was ridiculous... the mystery was okay but there was so much random fluff that was not necessary. As well as there were so many things that took forever to explain, for example the bird stump actually was. It wasn't explained until over half-way through the book which was really dumb. It was just way way to long that didn't need to be.
Rating: 2.4 out of 5
