    Full & Detailed review: https://cynthology.blogspot.com/2017/... This book had great potential, but it didn't live up to it. The blurb tells us that Shah Jahan is furious, but in the book, he seems remarkably unmoved and offers a reward to whoever finds the missing gems. Wouldn’t it have been more in character if he were to demand that his men find the gems and the thief or risk being beheaded? Nor is he perturbed at the sight of two 11-year-olds casually strolling by, at the construction site. For Full & Detailed review: https://cynthology.blogspot.com/2017/... This book had great potential, but it didn't live up to it. The blurb tells us that Shah Jahan is furious, but in the book, he seems remarkably unmoved and offers a reward to whoever finds the missing gems. Wouldn’t it have been more in character if he were to demand that his men find the gems and the thief or risk being beheaded? Nor is he perturbed at the sight of two 11-year-olds casually strolling by, at the construction site. For a Mughal emperor, he is far too genial. What’s more, once the mystery is solved, he generously hands out gifts to the boys. Not the smallest hint of curiosity about whose kids they are and how they happened to land there. The blurb also tells us that the boys seek to save history and themselves. But the truth is that the boys are far from concerned about the adventure. Not once do they worry about how they will return to their own time. The book takes far too long to tell its story. At 32% on the Kindle, Sid’s camera broke. He bought a new one at 42%. But it wasn’t until 59%, that they went back in time. The mystery in this book is utterly tame. There is no sense of danger or intrigue. The bulk of the book is taken up by facts relating to the Taj Mahal, which was interesting at first. It would have been better if these nuggets of information had been seamlessly woven into the story, rather than having Sid read them out from a book or having Raj show off his knowledge. The illustrations by fifth-grader Ananya Chopra were beautiful. This kid is really talented. As an idea, time travel is always very exciting. Here the potential inherent in it is completely lost.

    It's about a fifth grade boy who gets to go visit the Taj Mah in India. A change of plans happen and Sid and his friends get magically transported 350 years in to the past when it was still being built. Things start to get even crazier when they met the Emperor who is angry because some of the gems are missing from Taj Mah. Well Sid and his friend try to go on an adventure to try and find the gems themselves. But encounter more problems. Recommended for ages 5-10. It was a great Historical book.
