Bernard's Watch | [Andrew Norriss]

Bernard's Watch

The watch Aunt Beatrice has given Bernard is no ordinary one it can stop time. He just needs to press the button at the top and everything stops - except for him. It's a neat trick when it comes to finishing homework in a hurry or skipping school to take a stroll into town, but it does more than that. Much, much more!

Publisher's Summary

The watch Aunt Beatrice has given Bernard is no ordinary one it can stop time. He just needs to press the button at the top and everything stops - except for him. It's a neat trick when it comes to finishing homework in a hurry or skipping school to take a stroll into town, but it does more than that. Much, much more!

Bernard soon finds he can use it to score a goal in football, pass difficult maths exams and deal with school bullies. But the watch also has the power to harm. How will Bernard cope with his magical possession?

An entertaining and thought-provoking story from bestselling author Andrew Norriss.

    "Delightful"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It is a fun and creative book that leaves the reader wondering what they would do with more time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bernard's Watch?

    I specifically remember enjoying how polite Bernard was when he borrowed the bike off of a moving truck. The police officers confusion over the bike incident was very enjoyable.


    Which character ??? as performed by Clifford Norgate ??? was your favorite?

    Normaly my favorite characters are far from the leads, but I would have to say that I enjoyed Bernard's sense of humor a lot.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A magic stopwatch is a dream come true for both kids and criminals.

    "Thought provoking fantasy romp"

    What starts off as an apparently fluffy fantasy about a magic watch, slowly turns into a very thought provoking story. Whilst my 5 yr old missed the subtleties and just thrilled to the idea of having a "pause" button for real life, my 7 yr old started to ask some really quite adult questions.

    What is time really? If you had more time, what should you do with it? Can everything be fixed in time? If you could pause a maths test to give yourself more time to finish the questions, is that cheating?

    Bernard (the main character) starts off as quite a nervy, dull little boy and grows in stature and confidence throughout the book. The narrator might seem a bit nervy & dull to start with himself, but his flat voice is actually a very good fit for Bernard so stick with it!
