The Alchemist War
Dawk and Hype live in the 25th century, but their parents are research scientists which allow them to travel through space and time. In the first installment of the Time-Tripping Faradays series, they end up in Prague in the 1600s. They meet a man claiming to be an alchemist (someone who can turn a non-gold material into gold)--using technology from later than the 1600s. Its up to Dawk and Hype to stop Richthausen and find out how he discovered the new technology. 25th century technology is explained in the first few chapters so the reader can keep up with the story, and the time travel component may be fun for fans of the Magic Tree House and Time Warp Trio series.
