"A Magic Treehouse type of book written for older readers tells the stories of siblings who get whisked back in time to the Han Dynasty in Ancient China through a mysterious book they open inside an old travel agency. The book is in a comic format and tells the fictional tale of the siblings trying to get back home while also telling the factual history of Ancient China. Some of the topics covered are farming, medicine, and inventions as well as famous places such as the Silk Road and the Great Wall. Would be a fun complement to a unit of study on Ancient China." said.

" Once again Linda Bailey hits the learning target right in the centre. I love all the time travel with the Binkertons. Illustrations are fun and lively and the information is concise and easy to read. Great for non fiction lovers and students studying Ancient times. " said.

"On the Run in Ancient China combines fiction and nonfiction elements, as well as illustrations in a fun, entertaining way. The Binkerton children are visiting a travel agency together when all three unexpectedly travel through a travel guide to Ancient China. Once there, the older twins lose their little sister Libby. In trying to find her (she's safe with a government official and having a much easier time of things), they of course learn about many different aspects of life in Ancient China, including food, Chinese inventions, Chinese medicine and more. When they accidentally see some women working with silk worms (top secret information!), they are chased to the Emperor's palace where they find Libby. They must try to escape back to their own time period without losing their heads!

With a funny, conversational tone throughout and slapstick comedy, this is a quick, fun read. Includes a short (but useful) index, resources for further research and some additional information that helps explain Ancient China and the adventure.
