Hood gives us new insight into the appeal of time travel. Its attraction lies not simply in the urge to explore other eras, but to escape from our present, with all its sorrows and complications.

Synopsis

While exploring The Treasure Chest, Felix and Maisie are transported to a Massachusetts farm in 1836. Disappointed that they have not landed in their beloved New York City, they wonder why they were brought to Massachusetts to meet a young girl named Clara Barton. Perhaps Clara has a message for the twins? Or maybe they have one for her?
