I really enjoyed this book as it was unrealistic but not fantasy plus the ending was great.

Tom is not pleased when told he must spend the summer with his aunt and uncle while his brother recovers from the measles. One look at his uncle and aunt's house, and he is sure he'll be bored out of his mind. However, one night, when the old grandfather clock mysteriously strikes thirteen, Tom makes an incredible discovery that makes him want to stay.

WARNING: THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS! This is a classic that I like but do not enjoy, however well worth the $1 price tag at the library book sale. We spend so long time-traveling with Tom and enjoying his attempts in the present to talk about space-time with his uncle, that to discover abruptly at the end that Tom is actually visiting a dream plane with an old woman is fairly unsatisfying. And kind of weird. Wasn’t time travel interesting enough?
