How are they to make sense of the fact that fictional characters suddenly become flesh and blood? And most important of all: How do they get back home? AN AMAZING ADVENTURE THROUGH TIME was among the ten most sold books for young readers in the Portuguese language. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Glauco Adams was born in 1975. He has been publishing books since he was 26, two of which (including this one) are among the ten most sold books for young readers in the Portuguese language. At present, apart from working on other books, he also works as a screenwriter. AN AMAZING ADVENTURE THROUGH TIME is the second book he published (2003). In a way, the story is a tribute to Conan Doyle and to Agatha Christie, and he hopes that his book will inspire young readers to read the work of these fantastic writers. Since 1997 he has done much to promote the reading of Agatha Christie, largely through a well-known site that ran for many years. He is widely regarded as the most important (non-official) disseminator of the work of Agatha Christie in Brazil. He lives in Portugal with his family and his animals.
