In this adventure, Norby and Jeff are thrust backwards in time to the French Revolution, by a replica of a necklace once worn by Marie Antoinette. But this replica turns out to be a glitchy time travel device. In truth, there are several necklaces that look much alike and eventually multiple timelines as well. Our heroes travel back to neanderthal times and forward to a distant (but false) future; they meet Benjamin Franklin, aliens and others, all in an attempt to set things right. It's a confu...
I remember doing my 5th-grade book report on it - even got to draw my own picture of Norby and the necklace (now those were the days when art counted as a "report"!). I bet the Eagle River library still has this book!

Book 5 of the Norby series takes them on a slightly different adventure. They discover a replica of a necklace from 18th century France that is actually a device built by the Others with time travelling ability. Unfortunately, by using the device they unwittingly change history. They find themselves stuck in France in a world where the French Revolution never happened. Exciting adventures ensue as they struggle to figure out how to return time to its original track.
