Special announcement Justin Thyme the hot self published book has now been re-published by a publisher called INSIDE POCKET. This is amazing news for Doodled Books collectors as the exclusive rare self published doodled first edition first printings will no doubt be highly sought after. Prices have reached around a thousand pounds on AbeBooks for the self published limited editions. So far there has been a huge publicity campaign promoting the new book. In fact the front cover of the book was recently on the front cover of the Bookseller.
Doodled Books can now announce that an exclusive rare Doodled Limited Edition has been created for your collection. The theme of the Limited Edition is a Thyme Castle jigsaw puzzle. Only 42 books have a unique piece of the jigsaw. The books are from the very first print run and they are Inside Pocket first editions. However due to the authors work schedule there are only 20 books available and the rest should be here in the New Year.
Each book has a unique illustration and is signed. What makes these so special is the dropped numbers in the numberline – it should read 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 – however is reads 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3. Every book has a letter from the publisher stating that this is the first imprint of the book. They are also wrapped in paper and numbered. We think it's only a matter of "Thyme" before this book is on everyone’s bookshelf!

Product Description
Justin Thyme is a self-made billionaire living in a castle overlooking Loch Ness. The day he turns thirteen, he receives an anonymous gift: a fabulous watch with a puzzling message hidden on it. When he tells his father of his plans to build a time machine, the Laird of Thyme reveals tantalising fragments of past espionage and warns his son of a ruthless enemy keeping him under constant surveillance. At first, Justin fails to take Sir Willoughby seriously, but when a stranger arrives claiming to be his long-lost grandfather, Justin is wary - especially after his beloved Nanny insists the old man is an impostor. Justin's TV celebrity mother departs on a Congo expedition with her eccentric film crew and Eliza, a computer-literate gorilla. Whilst returning, Lady Henny is abducted, and clues prove that the kidnapper has inside information; someone in Thyme Castle must be a spy - or possibly Sir Willoughby's old enemy in disguise. Everyone is under suspicion: Justin's nervy tutor; their snooping housekeeper; the theatrical gardener; an ex-royal butler; and Mrs Kof, their freakishly strong cook. Suddenly, the race against time is on. Can Justin convert his vintage motorbike into a time machine, rescue his mum and discover the identity of their resident spy in less than a week...or will the dreaded Thyme Curse claim another life?
From the Publisher
The first book in the Tartan of Thyme series, following the adventures of teenage, self-made billionaire Justin Thyme, as he struggles against mysterious forces to keep his family together and stop the Curse of Thyme from striking again.
From the Inside Flap
'I don't have to build a time machine; I could still change my mind...' Justin shook his head, grasping at once the futility of his dilemma. The first domino had already been pushed; the fuse had been lit; the countdown had started. He'd passed the point of no return, and was trapped in the adventure of a lifetime with absolutely no way out.
From the Back Cover
Although set in the present, the book you are holding has not been written.. yet! This enigmatic literary paradox was recently unearthed by a highly respected cryptozoologist exploring subterranean caverns beneath a ruined Scottish castle. The chest he found contained a hand-written manuscript of the entire Tartan of Thyme with a strange explanatory note dated 01/04/26. Nothing else is known about its mysterious author, Panama Oxridge, except that he or she will be born something early next year.
About the Author
Once a successful author of picture-puzzle books, Panama Oxridge accidentally happened upon the secret of time travel and, ever since, has been forced to adopt a pseudonym, wear a series of disguises and move house thirteen times! One day, the author would like to travel back in time to the historical moment young Isaac Newton discovered gravity. I've always wondered if an apple really did fall on the poor lad's head!A"
