Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

A delightful children's story about Ancient Egypt and time travel. In the tradition of all books by Scieszka and Smith, although it is perfect for ages 6-10, adults will get a smile too from the offbeat humor and weird predicaments in which the Time Warp Trio find themselves. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Another adventure featuring the three boy heroes of The Good, the Bad and the Goofy and Scieszka's other time-travel comedies, this action-packed tale takes the trio to ancient Egypt. Ages 7-11.

More About the Author

[DRUM ROLL.....] PRESENTING THE ONE AND ONLY JON SCIESZKA!

Jon Scieszka was born in Flint, Michigan on September 8th, 1954. He grew up with five brothers, has the same birthday as Peter Sellers and the Virgin Mary, and a sneaking suspicion that the characters in his Dick and Jane reader were not of this world. Those plain facts, plus his elementary school principal dad, Louis, his registered nurse mom, Shirley (who once took Jon's Cub Scout den on a field trip to the prenatal ward), Mad Magazine, four years of pre-med undergrad, "The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show", an M.F.A. in Fiction from Columbia University, Robert Benchley, five years of painting apartments in New York City, his lovely wife Jeri Hansen who introduced him to Molly Leach and Lane Smith, Green Eggs and Ham, his teenage daughter Casey and almost teenage son Jake, ten years of teaching a little bit of everything from first grade to eighth grade, and the last twenty years of living in Brooklyn...are just some of Jon's answers to the questions, "Where do you get your ideas?" and/or "How did you become a writer?" I don't know, just because, none of your beeswax, and flapdoodle poppycock and balderdash are some more of Jon's answers to questions you can imagine on your own. Jon met up with Lane Smith around 1986 or so, and nothing has been the same since. Their first book, the wiseguy fairy tale retelling, The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs! was initially rejected by most publishers as "too weird" and "too sophisticated". Published by Viking in 1989, The True Story has now sold over a million copies, been translated into ten languages, and been called a "classic picture book for all ages". Jon and Lane's The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales (1992) took the world of the picture book a few steps further. Goofing with the conventions of fairy tales and even being a book, The Stinky Cheese Man became a household word, sold another mess of copies in multiple languages, offended a few purists, and still managed to win a Caldecott Honor medal. Math Curse (1995) further stretched the notion of what subjects make good picture books, selling more books faster than either 3 Little Pigs or Stinky Cheese, and winning a whole slew of awards --all for a book full of mathematics.More recently, Jon and Lane have resurrected fables (in the smart, funny, and a little bit wicked way Aesop would have wanted them) in their latest collaboration, Squids Will Be Squids (1998). No telling where they might take the picture book next. Someone once wrote, "Jon Scieszka has forever changed the face of children's literature." And while there is still some confusion over exactly who that someone was, and whether children's literature does, in fact, have a face, most would agree-from The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs! to Squids Will Be Squids, since Scieszka put pen to paper, children's literature sure has been...different.

My favorite of the Time Warp Trio's adventures so far. This time, the boys end up in the land of King Tut and hieroglyphics. Fear of having their hands chopped off and being mummified are just two of the threats the boys have hanging over their heads when they face the mysteries of ancient Egypt. A wonderful look into customs and beliefs mixed with great humor, terrific storytelling, and non-stop adventure. Another book of the Time Warp Trio series, Jon Scieszka is a master at storytelling. He combines adventure, history, fantasy and humor in a compelling format that even reluctant readers will find hard to put down.

Format: Paperback
Candy caramels are made with nutritious ingredients mixed with equal parts sugar. They are tasty, enjoyable, and have virtually no nutritional value. They are very like this pleasantly written, irreverent and forgettable time-travel story, part of a longer series by the same author. In Tut Tut, three friends are accidentally whisked into the time of ancient Egypt by a pesky younger sister, who is befriended by the goddess Isis. They, in turn, impress the boy-pharaoh with their sneakers and basketball skills, with a little additional help from scientific tricks that they pass off as magic.

Amidst the lighthearted, fast-moving plot the author mixes in quite a bit of trivia about ancient Egyptian culture, with quite a bit of juvenile humor but without any real sense of the cultural gravity of that great society. This is a fairly unobjectionable library read. While its accessibility makes it a good choice for a reluctant reader, I don't recommend it as part of a permanent home library.

My son recently wrote the following:
The Time Warp Trio books contain amazing pictures by Lane Smith and humorous stories by Jon Scieszka (of The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales fame). Time Warp Trio books are entertaining and easy to read and were probably written to encourage kids who don't usually read much to read more.
In Tut-Tut, the boys find themselves in the pharaohs' personal treasure room and are discovered by a angry high priest, who turns them in. Once again, The Book disappears, but this time Joe's little sister is also sucked in the warp, so not only do they have to get The Book back, they have to retrieve her, too.
Enjoy this "quick" summer read!

If you are looking for something besides Goosebumps to
interest your 6-11 year old's this is it. You will need to
allow lots of extra time for the giggles to stop when you
read about the adventures of three boys who find a magic book
which allows them to time-warp. Know that when you read one
of these books you won't be finished until you read all 6
in the series. Great for read aloud or middle elementary
readers.
By the author of the Stinky Cheese Man.

Format: Paperback
Synopsis: Joe, Sam and Fed (The Time Warp Trio) have successfully finished building their project on Egypt without the help of a certain `Book' for their research. However, when Joe gets into an argument with his sister Anna about the facts of Egypt, Anna opens `The Book' to prove them wrong, and they suddenly find themselves in Egypt in the treasure room, where they meet Hatsnat, an evil priest who is intended on becoming the most powerful Pharaoh. He accuses them of being robbers and decides to have their heads chopped off when they are interrupted by Thutmose III. Thutmose befriends the Trio and decides to take them to the palace to see his Aunt Hatshepsut. Little does the gang realize that their troubles are far from over, and apart from retrieving the book, they also have to find Anna and her cat Cleo this time.

Review: I had mixed feelings about this book, because although I liked all the adventures that the Trio went on in this book, such as Sam almost being caught by crocodiles, the Trio finding Anna, or being Mummified alive, I thought this book ended really abruptly because they didn't get a chance to meet Thutmose or Hatshepsut in the end to tell them about Hatsnat. However, judging by the events that really happened, I guess this was a plausible ending for the author to come to.

Apart from that, I did enjoy reading this book because it had a lot of twists and turns, with beautiful illustrations from Lane Smith. Overall, for me, this is a memorable Time Warp Trio book because of their eerie escape in the end.
