The Wells Bequest PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Wells Bequest free pdf Leo never imagined that time travel might really be possible, or that the objects in H. G. Wells science fiction novels might actually exist. But then a miniature time machine appears in Leo s bedroom, and he recognizes one of the tiny riders: himself! His search for the time machine and his fate leads him to the New-York Circulating Material Repository, a magical library that lends out objects instead of books. Hidden away in the Repository basement is the Wells Bequest, a secret collection of powerful objects straight out of classic science fiction novels: robots, rockets, submarines, a shrink ray and one very famous time machine. And when Leo s adventure of a lifetime suddenly turns deadly, he must attempt a journey to 1895 to warn real-life scientist Nikola Tesla about a dangerous invention. A race for time is on!"
