Richard J. Ward Publishes the First Installment to The Strange Adventures of Gilbert and Jade series
The Hermit and the Time Machine tells the story of how our actions towards waste and garbage will affect our survival.
The Hermit and the Time Machine has a moral lesson: the importance of recycling and the harmful effects of being wasteful.
What would a future where no humans existed look like? Where robots are the only people? Author Richard J Ward’s first installment of his children’s series, The Strange Adventures of Gilbert and Jade: The Hermit and the Time Machine talks of how two children travel to a future where humans are extinct, and where the consequences of our actions today are felt.
The story starts out with Gilbert and Jade arriving at the bizarre home of a Professor Boson. His house is made entirely from junk washed up on the beach. After a traumatic first encounter, he allows them into his home which is also an out-of-control time machine. They are then thrown into a future where robots are the only people – that self-replicate by building copies of themselves. A friendly robot helps the professor fix his time machine.
Like all children’s stories, The Hermit and the Time Machine has a moral lesson: the importance of recycling and the harmful effects of being wasteful.
Reviewer Valerie Porter remarks how much of a delight this story is for children and for adults willing to suspend reality. “The Hermit and the Time Machine is clever and charming with an environmental message that is handled in thought-provoking ways – robots using recycling dump materials, no more humans in existence because they polluted and poisoned the planet. Author RJ Ward’s writing is very descriptive in terms of characterizations and locations. It’s clear from the overall language, the primitive but charming illustrations and even the title of the book, that it is meant for children, who are sure to enjoy it.”
