Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2012 Spring)
This time around, sibs Jack and Annie time-travel backward two centuries to the Swiss Alps. The snowy milieu doesn't bode well for their quest to find a rare white and yellow flower to help save Merlin's penguin. Despite stale writing, the series continues to be reliable at making history lessons mildly entertaining. Black-and-white art reinforces the text's straightforwardness.
