Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6-In these picture books, twins Josh and Emma Binkerton and their younger sister Libby are transported back in time after opening a travel guide about a specific historical period at the creepy, ramshackle Good Times Travel Agency, and the only way to get home is to read the book cover to cover. Each page features the siblings' ongoing story, cartoonlike illustrations with dialogue balloons, and yellowed guidebook pages that provide basic background information about the period. The stories are full of slapstick, but hold together well and involve readers. Though the plots are contrived to tie into the guidebooks, they don't seem forced and the flow is good. The guides are written in a breezy style, paying just enough attention to the grosser aspects of each civilization to help maintain interest. Slavin's sunny pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations are packed with details. Kids are sure to devour these lively books.

My 8 year old boy read this and immediately asked for more like this! He loved these books. They take the kids into the Middle Ages with three fictional kids from our time. Plus they fill it with fun facts from that time period. A great book, for learning and for fun reading!

My son enjoys all of these books that we have gotten so far. We are reading these books along with our history material and my son is always thrilled to read the next one! Thanks so much!

Format: Paperback
A comic-book style story of siblings Josh and Emma who travel through time (Magic Tree House-style) to the Middle Ages. A "guidebook" printed at the bottom of each page give explanations of what is happening in the story. I found the comic book arrangement awkward and difficult to read. The guidebook at the bottom, however, was interesting. Grades 3-8

My 10-year-old granddaughter loves this series. After gifting her with three books from the Good Times Travel Agency about Ancient Greece, Ancient Egypt, and The Vikings, she couldn't wait to read more. Who would want to deny their grandkid a fun as well as educational reading experience? Of course, I ordered two more books for her about the Middle Ages and the Ice Age. Both of us enjoyed them.
