Gobbler and the Mirror

Gobbler would spend his days searching for scraps of food to steal and, whenever he found some morsel, he would gobble it down quickly. It was for this reason that the other street urchins gave him his nickname.

One day Gobbler’s luck seemed to change when he spied an open door of a rich house and he sneaked inside to search for something to eat. However, he found himself stumbling upon a meeting of local businessmen and he accidentally discovered the announcement of an amazing new invention that would change his life forever.

Find out how Gobbler managed to eavesdrop on the most important scientific discovery in the history of New Babbage and what he found out.

Like all stories by Maxwell Grantly, all is not what it may seem to be.

This delightfully illustrated eBook for children is free to download from iTunes, Kobo and Smashwords.

Gobbler and the Mirror

Gobbler and the Mirror

We all know that light travels incredibly quickly in a vacuum. When it passes through other media, such as water or glass, it slows down very slightly. So, just imagine what life would be like if light travelled substantially slower in glass! How would such a world look?

Professor Higgins discovered that, if you added a special crystalline compound to the manufacture of glass, you could create a new transparent substance that had the property of slowing light by a total of three hours. Just imagine looking through a window that was made of this new invention: it would be like looking three hours into the past!

A local street urchin named Gobbler accidentally stumbled into a lecture given by Professor Higgins and learnt the secret behind this new amazing substance. His life would never be the same from that moment on. Find out how Gobbler’s life changed for the worse when he found himself being framed for a theft that he did not commit and discover whether he managed to clear his name.

Maxwell Grantly reveals all in his new eBook: “Gobbler and the Mirror.”

As is common with many stories by Maxwell, everything is not what it might at first seem to be!
