A Bertram Bile time travel adventure series, set along the length of the River Thames
What would you do, if you were turned into a shrew and a monster was trying to kill you?
Bertram Bile wasn’t always like this. At primary school, he had friends, kind teachers, and great grades. But everything changed when he started his new school. His parents split up, his dad went missing, and his mum lost her job. Now he’s bullied by his classmate Angus and his evil geography teacher Miss Petrenko. His dad had been Miss Petrenko’s first love, but she never forgave him for dumping her for Bertram’s mum when they were kids themselves. Bertram feels sure that Miss Petrenko knows more about his dad’s disappearance than she’s letting on. After all, why would you take a job as a geography teacher if you didn’t know any geography AND you hated kids?

When a milkmaid spots two deadly shrews close to her prized cow, their death is the ONLY thing on her mind. Little does the milkmaid know that the shrews are 11-year-old time travellers Bertram and Molly. What will the milkmaid do to Bertram and Molly if she catches them? Could this be the end of our magical time-travelling duo? Based on the actual British folklore of the ”�shrew ash’ long believed to be a cure for a lame cow.
